IT is always said that Bollywood doesn’t have originality. Most of the Hindi films are a remake or inspired by Hollywood movies. But then, we are sure you guys don’t know that there are a few Hollywood movies too that are inspired by Bollywood films.
So, here’s the list of Hollywood films that were a remake of Bollywood movies…
1996 release Fear starring Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon was said to be inspired by Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Sunny Deol starrer Darr. Apart from the exact English translation of the title, there were a lot of things in Fear that reminded moviegoers of Darr. By the way, no one can beat our SRK’s style of saying ‘K… K… K… Kiran’.
Win A Date With Tad Hamilton
Win A Date With Tad Hamilton was highly inspired by Aamir Khan and Urmila Matondkar starrer Rangeela. Both the movies were a love triangle between a girl, her best friend and a movie star. However, the girl’s best friend here wasn’t tapori like Aamir Khan in Rangeela.
Kareena Kapoor Khan gave her career’s best performance in Imtiaz Ali’s Jab We Met. Amy Adams stepped into the shows of Bebo in Leap Year which was highly inspired by Jab We Met. But like Just Go With It, Leap Year too didn’t get praises from the critics and Amy too didn’t make a mark like Kareena.
Ayushmann Khurrana became a sperm donor in 2012 release Vicky Donor. In 2013, released Delivery Man which also revolved around the sperm donation. Vince Vaughn played the lead role in the Hollywood film.
A Common Man
Neeraj Pandey’s A Wednesday starring Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher is undoubtedly one of the best thrillers made in Bollywood. The movie was remade with Ben Kingsley and Ben Cross in 2013 titled A Common Man. Just like the original one, A Common Man also received a great response.
