The relationship between Bollywood and Hollywood transcends much beyond the similarities of their names. Both these global giants have shared a lot of common factors in their movies and have spread out their local culture to the world for all to experience. These film fraternities have exchanged their ideas of storytelling, filmmaking, and even characters in their movies for a long time now, but it has become pretty common these days with a rise in Bollywood remakes of Hollywood movies.

Bollywood has been inspired by Hollywood in their own cinema making and storytelling in a big way, so much so that the famed actors and directors have been remaking tons of Hollywood movies for Indian audiences. With its tweaks and twists, personal touches, and a sprinkling of the classic Bollywood masala, many great Hollywood movies have been remade to suit the taste of Indian movie enthusiasts.

Right from Gumnaam (based on ‘And Then There Were None’) in 1965 to Laal Singh Chaddha (remake of ‘Forrest Gump’) in 2022, Bollywood has tried to suit the American stories into the Indian settings and has brought some great stories to us.

In her mission to reclaim her love and her fiancé, Kajol accompanied by Ajay Devgan took us on a wild ride from Paris to Punjab and later to Palam Beach (Goa). Littered with groovy and catchy songs and an interesting storyline, this unusual love story covers all the bases to make it memorable. It can be considered one of the best Bollywood remakes of Hollywood movies due to it being a scene-to-scene copy of the original movie – French Kiss. The movie was shot in different parts of Switzerland, Seychelles and Chandigarh among other locations. The scenes were so mesmerising that many were inspired to get their Schengen visas and travel to Swiss for a holiday.
