Here’s How Much Bollywood Remakes Earned In 2017

Bollywood is known to remake the classics and basically destroying the whole essence. There are very few filmmaker who has the knack of making them as beautiful as the original ones. The film industry has a knack for remaking from the classics or from the regional industries. Even Hollywood films are now officially being remade in Bollywood. This year we saw quite a few remakes but their box office collection wasn’t that impressive.

1. Ok Jaanu


OK Jaanu is quite a modern rom-com. The movie is about a young couple who have aspirations and dreams. The young couple who are very much in love decide to live-in and the plot revolves around their life from there on. It is an official remake of Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film O Kadhal Kanmani. The movie collected mere Rs. 15.75 Crores. (Source)
