I still remember those days when I’d lounge on sofa and enjoy The suite life of Zack and Cody. The show went off-air but was soon replaced by The suite life of Karan and Kabir. This is not the first show that was a remake. There have been Indian television shows that have been re-made to fit Indian audience and taste. While few have been successful like 24, there have been few that failed to grasp audience attention like Laut Aao Trisha. There have been quite a few remakes that failed to attract attention and ended because of low TRPs.
