Abhishek Bachchan believes there is nothing wrong with remakes 

Bollywood's tendency to remake South Indians films has often been a subject of criticism. Fans and critics argue that remakes and adaptations are result of lack of creativity and money hungry mindset of some filmmakers. However, actor Abhishek Bachchan doesn't share the same sentiment. He believes that remakes are just as common in Southern film industries as they are in Bollywood and there is nothing wrong with them.

In a recent conversation with The Indian Express, Abhishek said, "Are you telling me that Hindi films are not being remade in the South? That is an unfair question because no matter what you say the answer comes out defensive. We all are part of the Indian film industry. We might work in different languages, but we are part of the same industry. We all cater to the same audience. It is not entirely fair to label any film industry. Films in Hindi or any languages have always been remade. It is not a new phenomenon. There has always been an exchange (of content) all the time. Nothing wrong in that.”

Talking about the success of recently released southern films like 'RRR', 'Pushpa' and 'KGF: Chapter 2', Abhishek said, "Currently these films are doing so well. But they have always done well. Our films have done well in South. It is not a new phenomenon. We are part of a large family. So, the exchange of content is bound to happen. The exchange doesn’t happen because there is a dearth of ideas in a certain industry. It is a choice we make as a creator.”
