For the past many years, Bollywood has turned to South for remaking some blockbusters. Starting off with Aamir Khan’s Ghajini, films such as Wanted, Rowdy Rathore, and Kick have caught the crowds captive in the last decade. The trend doesn’t seem to fade off any soon with a few more Hindi remakes lined up to emulate the successes achieved by their Telugu originals. Here are 3 upcoming Hindi films that are the remakes of recent Telugu movies.
