Aaiga. Bahubali 2 – the Destroyer of Box Office records is here.
He’s demolished every possible record of Salman, SRK, Aamir, Akshay, Rajnikanth and Tom Hanks even. He’s also fast & furiously breathing down Vin Diesel’s muscled neck.
It’s sent Bollywood copycats scurrying. Some are remixing their old formulae in a brand new Bali bottle. It’s almost like getting a new bahu (bali) home. Read on and see how Jinnions is the first to crack how Bollywood Biggies remade their hits with a dash of Bahubali and encashed a blockbuster. Again.
Pssst! We hear even Ekta Kapoor is contemplating remaking her serial as Kyunki Saas Bhi Bahu (Bali) thi???
Bahubali No 1.
Govinda remains the most versatile of actors ever. But even David Dhawan couldn’t make him Hero No.1 again. So he added a dash of Bahubali – The result? Bahubali No.1 – and probably another Govinda hit.
K3G ke baad? Ask the distributor of Bahubali, KJO himself. He was quick to announce Kabhi Bahu Kabhi Bali. Where Bahubali gets the gold, the family, the songs and all the heroines too.
The late Raj Kapoor made a masterpiece that didn’t work at the turnstiles. Even though many followers like Bhansali paid ode. So Then? The result – Mera Naam Bahubali. Starring a joking Bahubali with a TV rendezvous with actress Simi as a bonus.
After Tiger hides away with beau in Cuba in Ek Tha Tiger, Kabir Khan proved that Katappa didn’t kill Bahubali. He remixed ‘Bahubali Zinda Hai’ as proof. And presto, Bahubali was zinda!
After Befikre couldn’t become the sexy sequel to DDLJ, Aditya Chopra mixed Bahubali into his greatest creation as a rehash. The Result – BDLJ.
With Dilwale collapsing at the box office, Rohit Shetty decided to cash his big cheque – Chennai Express – and jumped onto the remix train. Soon to become the gravy train – a.k.a – Bahubali Express – was chugging away; much to Rohit (and SRK’S) delight.
Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra went & lost control. Oh Yes. And he took his color palette and painted a Rang De Bahubali. So we got another monster hit. In this, the political system doesn’t kill Bahubali. Katappa committed the dastardly act himself.
After all, Bahubali is human too. His mann also wanders. Little wonder that Pankaj Kapoor’s character hit a bottle, used Gulabo (the pink cow in the original) as inspiration and made BKBKM. Sounds like such a wild party. Hic!
