Bollywood Movies that were copied by Hollywood

It may seem incredible but often called as true when we see even plots of our very own Bollywood films were seen getting copied by Hollywood. This may surprise you, but there are a number of Bollywood films, which seemed to have copied blatantly by a number of award winning Hollywood movies, how about catching up the list for the same:

Kill Bill ABhay – Aalavandhan : Have you watched the film called Kill Bill, well the same film was copied by Kamal Haasan-starrer Telugu movie, Aalavandhan, which was made in Hindi called Abhay.

Image: Google images

Divorce Invitation – Aahvaanam :  We see S.V. Krishna Reddy venturing in Hollywood with the romantic film called Divorce Invitation, which was the remake of his own Telugu movie known as Aahvaanam. The film is all about a man who gets married to his sweetheart, but later falls in love with another girl and now wants a divorce from his wife. Interestingly, the marriage bond signed by the couple had a clause calling all the people who attended the marriage in a divorce ceremony to give the reason of separation.

Image: Google images

Jab We Met – Leap Year : he makers of the film Leap Year seemed to have claimed that it has nothing to do with the Imtiaz Ali film, Jab We Met. But, the story and scenes of LY seemed very much similar. Both the films revolved around the lives of a talkative girl who falls in love with a man whom she has taken help to run away from her place to marry her alleged boyfriend.

Just Go With It – Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? :Remember the story of the film of Salman Khan, Sushmita Sen and Katrina Kaif called Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, many would know that it has been completely copied off by director Dennis Duggan for his American rom-com movie, Just Go With.

The gym is the new airport: The changing face of Bollywood fashion

Perfectly poised handbag, limited-edition sunglasses and no extra luggage in sight – for a star, the business of dressing at the airport is no less than a red carpet event. But, the shutterbugs have moved on. While the proverbial paparazzi still hits the airport, stars in their gymwear are now stealing the show.

From gyms, pilates studios to yoga centres – the focus has shifted to activewear. Bollywood besties, Amrita Arora Ladak, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Malaika Arora are often clicked by photogs outside their fitness centers, and more often than not, happily pose for them too. The same goes for star couples, such as Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover and Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput. In a recent interview with Press Trust of India, agreeing to the fact that fitgear is fashionable, Malaika said, “World over, being fashionably fit is in. Gone are the days where people would hide away from being seen in their gymwear, including me. I think gymwear is the new fashion wear. So, go for it. With today’s style and the kind of fits that are available, it’s absolutely inspiring and fun.”

Actor Sophie Choudry thinks that it’s all a part of being in the public eye. “I’m someone who always like to be well turned out regardless of shutterbugs. That doesn’t mean one is dressed to the nines all the time but at least dressed appropriately for wherever I’m going and since I enjoy looking good, it’s not too much of a chore. Yes, it can be a bit disconcerting after a long flight, post a sweaty gym session or on a bad hair day but you know what, I guess it’s part of the deal and the fact that people are interested in your style is a compliment! It’s nice for people to see celebs in regular looks and not just red carpet style, so, the key is to flash your best smile and get on with it. I do find using stylists for airport looks a bit much though!” she says.

This trend is further amped by the fact that luxury sportswear and athleisure has been big in fashion for the past few years, and investment in sports gear continues. “The trend of high end gym wear, or inspired gym wear is certainly a major phenomenon at the moment. Exclusive collaborations internationally, the most recent being Fenty X Puma collection which had Rihanna putting her spin on sportswear, have also cemented this trend into popular consciousness. With more and more people getting into fitness as a lifestyle along with the fabulous bodies that celebrities usually have, it’s no surprise we’re seeing a surge in fashionable gymwear,” says designer Urvashi Kaur, adding: “Comfort also plays a huge part in this trend, which is why it’s also known as athliesure. It’s natural in this case to be investing in cool gym attire because it works for a huge cross section of people, right from celebrities at the airport to moms doing a coffee run to young kids at the mall. Well designed gym attire has made it possible to multi-task while looking stylish and effortless,” says designer Urvashi Kaur.
