Paresh Rawal talks about plagiarism issue in Bollywood 

Bollywood has been notoriously famous for its tendency to copy or remake other blockbusters. For a long time, filmmakers have copied plotlines, scenes, jokes and more from other industries. Seasoned actor Paresh Rawal, who has seen several phases of Bollywood, recently commented on this. Paresh has played villainous roles in 90s before he strayed towards comedy genre in 2000s. The actor has credited to new generation of filmmakers for revolutionizing the cinema and telling unique stories.

He said, "Earlier, we would plagiarise foreign stories and then later they (the original makers) would file cases against us. Now that doesn’t happen. So now we are focusing on our homegrown stories, which are far more superior, dramatic and challenging. Stories like Pagglait, Badhaai Ho! are wonderful examples."

The new crop of filmmakers has also allowed underused actor's to show their true potential and this is a jackpot for artists like Paresh Rawal. He said, "It was difficult a few years ago to keep getting good work but not anymore. Hindi cinema has been going through a golden phase since the last five-six years. There are new writers, directors, actors, and a disciplined finance sector. (The) work is finished in the given time frame and delivered."
