Akshay Kumar justifies Bollywoods obsession with remakes

Bollywood's obsession with remakes is no secret. Be it southern blockbusters, foreign language films or old Hindi classics for that matter, Bollywood loves to adapt films. While it is argued that remakes signify lack of creativity and greedy nature of production houses, their are certain celebs who find nothing wrong with them.

Recently, actor Akshay Kumar spoke on the matter and shared that their is nothing new or wrong about adapting films in different languages in order to propagate them to larger audience. He told The Indian Express, "I was recently questioned why I am doing two remakes. To which I say, why shouldn’t I? What is the problem in it? My O My God was remade in Telugu, the film worked here as well as there, I did their Rowdy Rathore, it worked there as well as here."

Akshay further added, "So, why does anyone have an issue with that? People have a problem with songs being remixed, why? We are making originals also and remakes also. If there is a good south Indian film and we are taking the rights and remaking here, what’s the issue? People are saying we don’t have talent here, of course we have talent here, but if we have liked a story then why can’t we remake it in Hindi?”
