For Vipul Shah, remakes not a new trend
Mumbai: Filmmaker Vipul Shah, whose `Holiday - A Solider Is Never Off Duty`, a remake of Tamil film `Thuppakki`, is enjoying a successful run at the box office, says remakes are not a new phenomenon.
"It`s not a new trend. It keeps happening. A good film keeps happening in many languages today. It`s a common practice," Shah said.
"I don`t think remake per se has got any pluses or minuses. If it`s a good film, it gets remade," he said and added that technically `Holiday` is not a remake because "this was supposed to be made in Hindi first".
Directed by A.R. Murugadoss, the high paced action thriller starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha has already touched Rs 79 crore mark at the box office.
