Pakistan copies Indian actors too. I saw a play having an artiste who was a look alike of Amitabh Bachchan. Then in India's Bollywood there was a look alike of Dev Anand.

As far as music goes I feel it is a credit to the original music director if someone copies. But I do not know about visuals.

it seems every Indian music director wants a short-cut.that's why they do not get respect
