If you are fond of movies it doesn’t even matter in what language the film is. All that matters is a good script-worthy acting and obviously skilled direction.
Did you drool over R Madhavan’s Maddy when he proposed Reena in the most romantic way in REHNA HAI TERE DIL MEIN!?
Did you laugh hard when Babu Rao had his hilarious comic timing in Hera Pheri!?
What if we tell you those movies are inspired from South industry? Shocked Right!?
Most of us didn’t know the fact or have no idea about the original gems.
So here Fan9 presents five Bollywood movies that did their magic but were adapted from others.
1. MANICHITRATHAZHU – BHOOL BHULLAIYA
Who can forget Priyadashan’s horror flick, Bhool Bhullaiya, right!? But actually, do you know that this film is inspired from a Malayalam film, Manichitrathazhu. In this 1993 movie, Vidya Balan’s role was originally portrayed by actress Shobana that gained her much fan-following. This movie was not only remade in Hindi, but also in Kannada, Tamil and Bengali.
2. RAMOJI RAO SPEAKING- HERA PHERI
Hera Pheri is recognized as one of the best comedy Bollywood films of all time. But this is also inspired from another Malyalam film, Ramoji Rao speaking. Though, the Hera Pheri franchise got more fame than the original one but we bet you would like the original piece too.
3. MINNALE – REHNA HAI TERE DIL MEIN
Directed by Gautam Menon, both these movies had R Madhavan in the lead. *Phewww However, audience loved Dia Mirza as Reena and it gained a huge fan following amongst the youngsters.
This was the remake of AR Murugadoss’s own Tamil movie of the same name and both the movies did well at the box-office.
5. ARJUN REDDY- ADITHYA VARMA- KABIR SINGH
Though Arjun Reddy was a huge hit in Telugu, but does anyone know about Adithya Varma made in Tamil? Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh were written and directed by the same person, Sandeep Vanga. Both Vijay Deverekonda and Shahid Kapoor came under for their respective roles for showing ‘toxic masculinity.’
