Mumbai, June 7: Rohit Shetty is popular in Bollywood for his remakes and he is unduly worried about his image. He says he does not have the courage to make original films like Taare Zameen Par or Paa. Rohit shot into fame with his action entertainer 'Zameen' in 2003 on debut, which is a remake of Hollywood super hit Executive Decision. Though the film failed to make any impact in Bollywood, he came back strongly with 'Golmaal' in 2006 which created laughter riot. The film is also a remake of Malayalam film Kakkakuyil. Now is latest hit Singham is also a remake of Kollywood super-hit by the same name.
Rohit interacting with media at an event celebrating 100 years of cinema at Whistling Woods confesses "Those who make original films are very brave. I think I would never be able to make films like Taare Zameen Par, Paa, Stanley Ka Dabba, Do Dooni Chaar. I think one needs guts for that and I don't have that. I guess filmmakers like Amol Gupte, Habib Faisal and R. Balki take more challenges." He adds "I know few people for whom Golmaal was trash and so is Singham. That is why I don't talk about the hard work put in (for remakes)."His soon-to-be-released film, Bol Bachchan, a rom-com starring Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Asin and Prachi Desai, is inspired by the 1979 flick, Gol Maal. The film is expected to release on July 6.
