Bollywood filmmakers not once but on several accounts have adapted plays of William Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet is the most common one out of the lot.

The movies were not only appreciated in India but worldwide; directors have been successful at not only earning well at the box office but also managed to do justice to the play.
