South Indian Film Industry has been very popular from last many years and similarly, Bollywood is also one of the biggest industry for the movies in India. Though both industries have their own ideas to create the movies but however there are certain movies where Bollywood copied South Indian movies. Mostly this is happening because of the wider people are from Hindi speaking background and they like to see the higher status of Bollywood actor as compare to any other regional language. Here is the list of movies which are copied from South Indian Film Industry:

1. Gajini (2008)

It is copied from Tamil movie Ghajini. Actor Aamir Khan earned 100 crores at the box office but success should not purely be given to the crew member of the Hindi movie because the fact is Tamil film is also inspired from Memento, an English film by Christopher Nolan. Tamil movie was remade in 2005. The most interesting fact is that the female lead of both the films was portrayed by Asin Thottumkal and was also directed by the same person, A. R. Murugadoss.
