Arshad Warsi defends Hindi remakes of regional films; says south films have innovative stories, take risks

Recently, while talking to a daily, Arshad defended the need for remakes when the story is the same. He said that remakes attract a new audience. The actor said that comparisons between the two films are bound to happen. He said that it's the same film with different actors and language. He said that it is okay to be compared as long as you have done your job well. Warsi further said that since the director is the same, the point of view is the same, hence reducing the risk factor.

Defending Hindi remakes of regional films he gave the example of Dayavan which was a remake of Mani Ratnam's Nayakan and he loved those films. He said that he would love to see a lot of Tamil, Malayalam and other south films. Praising regional films, he said that they come out with innovative stories, take risks unlike the Hindi film industry.
