R Madhavan on why he doesnt prefer working on remakes

Bollywood's obsession with remakes and adaptations is often a subject or debates. While some people don't see anything wrong with them, others believe that remakes are a sign of lack of creativity. During the teaser launch event of his upcoming film 'Dhokha - Round D Corner', actor R Madhavan shared his take on remaking iconic movies.

He stated, "I don’t remake my films anyway. I was asked to remake 3 Idiots in Tamil, I didn’t do it. It is difficult for me, as an actor, to do a scene first time, and then to recreate; it is impossible for me. There is comparison in remakes and the whole fun of doing a film goes away.”

Madhavan then went on to comment on the media narrative that Bollywood is lagging behind South Indian cinema. He said, "If the film is good, public will come to the theatres. When we talk about South films that have done well, let me tell you clearly that Bahubali 1, Bahubali 2, RRR, Pushpa, KGF 1 and 2, are the only south Indian films that have done better than movies of Hindi film actors. It is only six films, we can’t call it a pattern. If good films come, they’ll work."

The actor concluded by saying, "I think post Covid, people’s liking and preferences have changed because they’re consuming content from all around the world. So if we make the kind of films that they like, people will watch, with the kind of films that are coming today, we’ll have to become a little bit more progressive.”
