These popular regional films have a high recall value, which Bollywood producers love to capitalise on, but there also appears to be a change in viewer expectations. It has been noted that instead of the tried-and-true remake formula, the general public today prefers something new and intriguing.

Several producers from the Hindi film business have acquired the rights to popular films produced in the Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam film industries throughout the years.
