Be it Hollywood, Bollywood, or even apna TV wala Dramawood aaj kal it is all about remakes, remixes, revisits, redos. Gana ho ya koi kahani the same old is being served up with a tarka of something new. Matlab ke kuch khaas itna naya nahi hai magar ab kuch aisa purana bhi nahin hai. Ji, it’s all about putting a new spin on the same old.
