1. A Common Man (2013)– A Wednesday (2008)
Chandran Rutnam had to cast Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley to succeed Naseeruddin Shah’s character from ‘A Wednesday’. A Common Man is an official remake of Neeraj Pandey’s blockbuster.
2. Delivery Man (2013)– Vicky Donor (2012)
The difference between the two films may lie in the plot. Vince Vaughn’s sperm donations produced a total of 533 kids being born compared to that of Ayyushman’s 53. But the idea of the film, ‘sperm donation’, has been inspired by Vicky Donor.
3. Fear (1996)– Darr (1993)
Except for the name (i.e direct translation) and the love triangle, the famous scene of the stalker, Shahrukh Khan, carving out K-K-K-Kiran’s name on his chest has also been followed by James Foley in his epic American thriller, Fear.
