Ram Gopal Varma bashes the idea of remakes after Jersey failure

Bollywood has often been accused of cashing on the brilliance and creativity of popular South Indian films by remaking them for the Hindi audience. Actor Shahid Kapoor, who previously starred in 'Arjun Reddy' remake 'Kabir Singh', was recently seen in 'Jersey' which is a remake of a Telugu blockbuster of same name.

Apparently, the film did not do too well on the box office and acclaimed filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma took this as an opportunity to state why remaking films is not a good idea. In a series of tweets, RGV bashed the idea of remakes and shared how audience are more inclined towards Hindi dubbed versions of South Indian films.

He wrote, "The DISASTROUS fate of JERSEY film in Hindi signals the DEATH of REMAKES for the simple reason it has been proved multiple times that dubbed films like #Pushpa #RRR #KGF2 are doing far better than originals, if the content is good #DeathOfRemakes."

He further added, "If Nani ‘s original JERSEY from Telugu was dubbed and released it would have costed the producers just 10 lakhs whereas the remake in Hindi costed 100 cr resulting in losing enoromous money, time, effort and face #DeathOfRemakes."

RGV concluded by saying, "After the monstrous successes of dubbed films like #Pushpa , #RRR and #KGF2, no south film with good content will be sold for remake rights as even both the content and regional stars are being liked by the Hindi audiences #DeathOfRemakes. Moral of the story is it’s smart to release dubbed films instead of remaking them because it’s obvious that the audiences are ok with any face or any subject from anywhere as long as it interests them #DeathOfRemakes."
