I am not a fan of remaking films, I prefer original movies with subtitles. I have seen many Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and other regional language films with subtitles. but if a director can direct a better version in mother tongue or at least a similar version of the original story then, why not!
Bollywood is known for remaking South Indian films and we have already shared 50 South Indian films remade in Bollywood, but today we are going to reverse the situation. We know this remaking trend is very old and we have multiple film industries in India, so remaking films of each other’s languages is very common.
that’s why there are plenty of Indian films remade in more than Two Languages. As we shared how Rajinikanth got his fame by remaking Amitabh Bachchan’s hit films.
Not only Rajinikanth other Kollywood actors also appeared in Tamil remakes of Bollywood films like Vijayakanth in Ghayal Remake, Bharathan and Vijay in Soldier Remake, Villu and Kamaal Haasan in A Wednesday Remake, Unnaipol Oruvan.

This remaking film is nothing new as you can see from the above list, there are plenty of Tamil remakes of very old Hindi films, but we have a similar post where you can find how Bollywood started remaking South Indian films.
You can see the list is huge and we may have missed many of them, so you can imagine that nobody is clean everybody is copying stories from each other, so next time somebody blames Bollywood for remaking Tamil film you can hit him with the URL of this article.
I just want to say that we must enjoy the cinema, all stories should reach to all classes and every corner of our country. Bahubali is a great example, it was released in multiple Indian languages and loved by the whole country.
