Over two decades, we have seen many South films remake in Bollywood, which became a money-spinner at the box office. Salman Khan’s Wanted, Ranveer Singh’s Simba and Shahid Kapoor’s Kabam Singh with Hungama, Halchul, Chup Chup Ke, we have many examples of how Bollywood was roasted on the South remake.

So, let’s know which of them you are most excited for?
