    Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar, who will be seen in the remake version of 'Chashme Baddoor', says that remakes are made to earn profit when at times Bollywood runs out of original ideas.

    However, the 32-year-old actor also acknowledged that films based on innovative subjects too are being made in the tinsel town.

    "To some extent it is true that the industry is running out of original ideas. But the commercial model of film-making is to revamp a story, keeping in mind today's times and present it in a different way. Cinema is a business. The aim is to make profit," Zafar said in an interview.

    Zafar, who has acted in television dramas in Pakistan, also pointed out that the commercial viewpoint and original ideas go hand in hand in Bollywood.

    "But there are original films also getting made like 'Tere Bin Laden', 'English Vinglish', 'Vicky Donor'. Both the things exist. There are times when industry people are running out of ideas and while there are others who are trying out newer subjects," he said.

    Directed by David Dhawan, 'Chashme Buddoor' is the remake of 1981 hit romcom by the same name.

    On the contrary we are seeing some original stories now. We kept getting "inspired" by Hollywood movies all the time otherwise

    He is in no position to make such comments but I agree with him though. Its especially true with big star movies.

    You should leave your brains behind when you go to watch their movies. Add Govinda to the list

    It is not just bollywood, everywhere they are running out of original ideas. It is getting harder to do something not done before; that is why the truly awesome movies stand out more today than 10-20 years ago.

    Most Hollywood movies these days are based on novels, hardly original. Bollywood lacking ideas for scripts is symptomatic of us lacking in print fiction in general.

    Its more to do with us expecting a lot more from movies now. The audience is becoming more intelligent every generation.

    I think 2 hrs alloted to a movie are not enough to tell a deeply engaging story while keeping commercial considerations in mind. Video games are fast becoming a better media to tell a story, none can match books though.
