Bollywood is a world of inspirations. Some inspire while others get inspired. There is a lot of inspiration in all the areas - Music, Stories, Lyrics and even Titles.The most repeated title in Bollywood is Dillagi (1942, 1949, 1966, 1978, 1999), Dushman (1939, 1957, 1972, 1990, 1998) and Fareb (1953, 1968, 1983, 1996, 2005) with 5 films made on each. Next in the line are Aankhen (1950, 1968, 1993, 2002) and Baazi (1951, 1968, 1984, 1995) with 4 films made on each title.

There are some interesting facts as well. The only actor to star in the more than one film with the same title is Sanjay Dutt who starred in Hathyar (1989, 2002). Here are such titles which Bollywood has repeated.

#1.Hera Pheri: The first Her Pheri starring Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna was way different than the 2000 comedy that made us roll on the floor with laughter.

#2. Aankhen: There was also a 3rd one which starred Govinda and released in 1993. While these other two had more serious concepts that one was a comedy.


#3. Baaghi: The two films have the same title and tagline but besides that, there is not much in common. 


#4. Dilwale : Remember the Ajay Devgan 'Dilwale' which was also had Suniel Shetty and Raveena Tandon that was released in 1994. Harry Baweja who directed the movie. Well sharing the same title did not help Shah Rukh Khan much in 2015. 


#5. Golmaal: Leave it to Rohit Shetty to bring back a film from the 1970's and make a box office superhit! The 'Golmaal' franchise, that has reached it's fourth installment, cashed in crores and has had moviegoers laughing out loud, was actually a resurrected.


#6. Mr. X: Based on the same invisibility concept the stories of the two films were very different.
