Of recent, the Hindi film industry has been churning out remakes of several South films. There are more than 10 films that are currently being remade into Hindi. A lot of the recent remakes in Hindi of successful South films were rejected by the audiences. After Shahid Kapoor's Jersey failed to perform at the box office, Ram Gopal Varma took to his Twitter to share a string of tweets with the hashtag 'Death of Remakes'.
Ram Gopal Varma signals the death of remakes- “Telugu and Kannada films have infected Hindi films like a COVID virus”
Filmmaker Varma is not the one to hold back his opinions and thoughts and expresses himself on Twitter. Recently, he took to Twitter to praise films like RRR, Pushpa, and KGF 2 that have shattered records at the box office. Commenting on the success of South films and them overpowering Hindi films at the box office, Varma wrote, "TELUGU and KANNADA films have INFECTED Hindi films like a COVID VIRUS..Hoping that BOLLYWOOD will soon come up with a VACCINE".

He also commented on the "disastrous" fate of Jersey at the box office. Jersey is the remake of the Telugu film of the same name starring Nani. While the original film was heavily praised and even won the National Award for Best Telugu film, the Hindi remake failed to attract audiences to the theatre. “The DISASTROUS fate of JERSEY film in Hindi signals the DEATH of REMAKES for the simple reason it has been proved multiple times that dubbed films like #Pushpa #RRR #KGF2 are doing far better than originals if the content is good #DeathOfRemakes," RGV tweeted.
“After the monstrous successes of dubbed films like #Pushpa, #RRR and #KGF2 , no south film with good content will be sold for remake rights as even both the content and regional stars are being liked by the Hindi audiences #DeathOfRemakes,” he added.
