5 Hollywood Films That Have Been Copied From Bollywood

Bollywood filmmakers and actors have long been the butt of jokes for having copied films and not to mention film posters from Hollywood. Poor Bollywood, it has made quite a name for itself, but while you share a laugh with your friends about how Heyy Baby is a rip-off of Three Men and A Baby, did you know that this was a two-way street? Many Hollywood directors have taken inspiration from none other than our desi films back home, like the ones mentioned below.

1.   Darr (1993)-Fear (1996)

Even if we set aside the direct translation of the title for a moment, we simply cannot ignore how James Foley copied the epic sequence of Shahrukh Khan carving the name of K-K-K-Kiran on his chest.

2.   Vicky Donor (2012)-Delivery Man (2013)

Remember the Vince Vaughn starrer film on sperm donation which created ripples in Hollywood in 2013? Apparently, Shoojit Sircar’s film on a hush-hush topic caught the attention of audiences worldwide!

3.   Jab We Met (2007)-Leap Year (2010)

Leap Year is about a talkative girl who travels across the country to ask her boyfriend to marry her. On her way, she meets a man who turns out to be her knight in shining armour. Ring a bell, anyone?

4.   Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya(2005)-Just Go With It(2011)

Replace Salman Khan with Adam Sandler and Sushmita Sen with Jennifer Anniston, and you wouldn’t be able to tell one film from the other.

5.   A Wednesday(2008)-A Common Man(2013)

The official remake of the masterpiece called A Wednesday by Neeraj Pandey, A Common Man stars Ben Kingsley in the leading role.

So the next time you target Bollywood for being a copycat, maybe you’d like to keep these films in mind.
