What I think Bollywood has missed copying from Hollywood is the super-hero franchise to bring in the younger audience. In Hollywood, you have Avengers being one of the top grossers of all time. Iron Man has been a major hit with the kiddies, not to mention the evergreen Amazing Spider man.

Apart from Krishh, I have not seen any superhero films recetnly targeted at kids (Ra-One – retrograde amnesia). In fact if you check out the list of superhero films – http://www.lightscamerabollywood.com/bol lywood-superheroes/ – you will notice that apart from Krissh, Shaktiman and Mr India – the last 30 years have not produced anything worthy of Stan Lee. This is a huge opportunity lost by film producers.
