From Partner to Tubelight, a look at Salman Khan films which are based on Hollywood movies.
Bollywood movies have a history of being inspired by foreign films be it Hollywood or Korean films. Even the biggest superstars of Bollywood haven’t been spared from this disease and some of their most successful films are either inspired or adapted from Hollywood movies. Let’s take a look at all Salman Khan films based on Hollywood movies.
Salman Khan played a love guru in the movie Partner and he helps Govinda is getting the girl of his dreams. The story was very fresh and entertaining for the Indian viewers but it was actually inspired by Will Smith’s Hitch.
Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya
The romantic comedy film Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya was actually based on the 1969 movie Cactus Flower, which was in turn inspired by a French play Fleur de cactus written by Pierre Barillet and Jean-Pierre Gredy. The play even inspired another Hollywood film Just Go With It which came out in the year 2011.
Salman Khan’s period film Yuvvraaj was the story of three brothers who try to win over the family’s fortune by conning each other. This story actually belonged to Tom Cruise’s and Dustin Hoffman’s Rain Man.
The multi-starrer movie Salaam-E-Ishq had an ensemble cast including Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham, Govinda, Akshaye Khanna and many others. The theme of the movie was starkly similar to that of Love Actually. Salaam-E-Ishq is said to be the unofficial remake of the film.
God Tussi Great Ho
The director of God Tussi Great Ho, Rohit Dhawan claims that the movie is based on the folk tale of Brahmin but anyone who has seen the movie and the Hollywood film Bruce Almighty would agree that the movie is based on the same concept.
Salman Khan’s soon-to-release film Tubelight has been making the news lately due to a number of reasons.
