Bollywood is out of idea it seems! The way it is raining announcements of South Remakes in Bollywood, makes us wonder whether it is Bollywood or Remakewood? Of course, South films are sure shot success formula for Bollywood. Films like Ghajini, Wanted, Rowdy Rathore paved the way for South remakes and to date, it has not stopped! Recently, Simbba, Kabir Singh and many other south films have proved that this trend of remaking is here to stay. In this article, let’s see the upcoming south remakes in Bollywood which will be releasing in 2021 and 2022.
Upcoming South Remakes in Bollywood in 2021:
South Star Vijay’s 2021 blockbuster Master will be remade in Bollywood. Master’ film can be called as an out and out massy film of 2021. Its story, music and cinematography were engaging and top-notch. Also, the performances of leads Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi were outstanding. As per the rumours, this remake will star Salman Khan. Official confirmation is not yet done. If rumours are to be believed then Salman Khan starrer will not be a frame to frame copy of the original. We hope the story of this remake will be the same, unlike Radhe which failed to excite audiences.
Nani starrer Jersey is an iconic story of an ex-cricketer who starts playing cricket again. The film has a good amount of emotions and performance portrayed by lead actor Nani. The film is a box office hit and has also received good reviews from critics. Jersey’s Bollywood remake will star Shahid Kapoor. After the success of Kabir Singh, this will be Shahid’s second remake. We hope this will be a well-made remake of a South film. Also, there are huge expectations from the performance of Shahid Kapoor, as the director of a remake is the same as the original.
This film Anniyan aka Aparichit, which we have watched again and again on Zee Cinema will be remade in Bollywood. Director Shankar will be remaking this film with Ranveer Singh in the lead role. It will be a huge task for the filmmakers and actors to live up to the expectations of the original.

Bollywood or Remakewood:
Not only South films, but Bollywood is also remaking Marathi films as well. Mimi which features Kriti Sanon is a remake of the Marathi film Mala Aai Vhaychay! Salman Khan and Ayush Sharma starrer Antim: The Final Truth is a remake of the hit Marathi film Mulshi Pattern.
South Remakes in Bollywood in 2021:
We hope that Bollywood will stick to the original film’s soul and script and not over dramatise the Hindi versions. The reach of Bollywood films is more as compared to South films so the Hindi version needs to be handled more seriously. These days, there is more to south films other than just slow-motion action scenes and loud drama. We hope, Bollywood too will understand this and will make these remakes accordingly.
