Vipul Shah: Akshay Kumar’s Holiday is not a remake

The filmmaker says that the film was supposed to be made in Hindi before its Tamil version Thuppakki

Filmmaker Vipul Shah, whose Holiday – A Solider Is Never Off Duty, a remake of Tamil film Thuppakki, is enjoying a successful run at the box office, says remakes are not a new phenomenon.

“It’s not a new trend. It keeps happening. A good film keeps happening in many languages today. It’s a common practice,” Shah told IANS.

“I don’t think remake per se has got any pluses or minuses. If it’s a good film, it gets remade,” he said and added that technically Holiday is not a remake because this was supposed to be made in Hindi first.

Directed by A.R. Murugadoss, the high paced action thriller starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha has already touched Rs.79 crore mark at the box office.
