The Indian Music Industry is primarily dominated by movie score albums. And Bollywood and the Tamil film industry have a long history of borrowing, remaking and getting “inspired” from each other in terms of their art, be it the movies itself or the songs. In some cases, when a movie is set to be produced in multiple languages or a Tamil movie is being remade in Hindi, the same music director lends the same melodies to songs with lyrics that are in different language. Hence, the Indian music industry is filled with different versions of the same Song, either with the lyrics in a different language or with the whole sound arrangement having been tweaked.
Here are five of the Bollywood songs that were originally made in Tamil
