 One of the largest centres of film production in the world, Bollywood is known for the number of movies it churns out in a year. Over time, Indian filmmakers have made some exceptional films that have redefined the way the global market looks at Indian cinema. Despite this, many Bollywood makers blatantly copy scenes from Hollywood films without batting an eyelid. The movie idea might be original but there a few scenes that are literally copy-pasted from Hollywood films. The director might call it inspiration but the scenes we've listed down here make a true case of plagiarism. 

7 Popular Bollywood scenes that were ripped off Hollywood

1. Sherlock Holmes's fighting scene in Dabangg

Salman Khan movies are known for their action sequences. Khan's movie has visually appealing fight scenes that get whistles from the audience. In 2009, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law's Sherlock Holmes was released. In 2010, Abhinav Kashyap decided to pick the fight sequence and use it in Dabangg without any alterations. The only change Kashyap made in the scene was where Khan uses blood to distract Sonu Sood while Sherlock uses a handkerchief. From the style of punching to smashing, everything is copied frame by frame.

2. Friend's airplane scene in Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya 

For some reason, the movies Salman Khan stars in often find inspiration from the west. Khan and Arshad Warsi's popular movie Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya has a scene that was lifted from cult sitcom Friends. The scene where Arshad Warsi asks Sushmita Sen to get off the plane is exactly replicated from Phoebe and Rachel's conversation where Phoebe asks Rachel to get off the plane. Well, the maker did add a third character which wasn't part of the original screenplay.
