Hollywood is one of the biggest movie industries but Bollywood is not very far. It makes huge amount of movies every year and majority of the movies are unique and not copied. However, there are many Hollywood movies that you may do not know have been copied from the Bollywood movies. Do, you know the movies?
Here are the 10 Hollywood movies copied from Bollywood.
10. Divorce Invitation
The movie featuring Jonathan Bennett and Jamie L Sigler is a copy of a Tamil Romantic drama named Aahwanam. However, the movie was directed by the same director S V Krishnan Reddy in 2012. The Tamil Version was released in 1997.
You might have loved to see Will Smith in Hitch. The 2007 movie was inspired by a popular Hindi movie named Chhoti Si Baat. Chhoti Si Baat was released in 1975 and was based on the Love Gure theme. Hitch cannot be said a total copy but it was largely inspired from this movie that people can clearly draw the similarities. Chhoti Si Baat featured Amol Palekar and Ashok Kumar in lead roles.
8. Just Go With it
The 2011 movie was released with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler in lead roles. However, this movie was based on the Salman Khan hit Maine Pyar Kyun Kia that was released in 2005. However, it can be said that both of the movies were based on some similar concept of the movie Cactus Flower released in 1969.
7. Leap Year
Makers clearly rejected the claim of Copy from Jab We Met, but the storyline is exactly the same for Leap Year. The 2010 movie was released featuring Amy Adams and Mathew Goode was actually copied from the Shahid Kapoor and Kareen Kapoor blockbuster that was released in 2007.
6. Pearl Harbor
Well, you might have been fascinated about this 2001 movie but basically it was more of Sangam released in 1964 in Bollywood. The plot of the movie is similar where it is less about the war and more about a triangle love story. Only thing that separates the two movies is that the Sangam has only one friend as Pilot whereas the Pearl Harbor has both of them as Pilots.
