Be it Salman Khan's JAI HO or Akshay Kumar's GABBAR, they all are based on A R Murugadoss' films, which are in great demand for remakes amongst Bollywood filmmakers. However, Murugadoss feels bad when the storyline is tweaked a little in the remake.
''When filmmakers tweak the story here and there, I feel bad. Sometimes I don't want to watch the remake of my films,'' says Murugadoss, when asked how he feels about the remakes of his films being made here with great delight.
Salman Khan's JAI HO was the most anticipated film of the year and it was expected to shatter all the records at the Box-office. However, the film was a dud.
When we probed the talented filmmaker, who penned Salman Khan's JAI HO, which was based on his own Telugu blockbuster STALIN (2006), the reason behind its failure, he expressed, ''I think the only thing which affected the film greatly was witnessing remakes back-to-back in Bollywood. Of late there have been too many remakes which we have been seeing. It becomes boring for the audience also. Sometimes you get tired doing the same thing. Sometimes people will compare the location, costume, actors, music...''
Meanwhile, Murugadoss is gearing up for his upcoming Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha starrer HOLIDAY: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, which is again a remake of his 2012 super hit film THUPPAKKI.
