Boney Kapoor, who recently worked with Times of India, shared his views on why remakes don’t work at the box office. The Dear producer told the portal, “One of the reasons why Hindi remakes of some films from the south don’t work is because they are simply copied. Even the names are kept the same as in the original, as in the case Vikram Vedha and Jersey. Also In the remakes of south films, a north Indian nativity scene needs to be added to suit the Hindi audience. You have to make a film that will be accepted across India.”
