Reporter asked Rakul Preet, “Do you think Bollywood is dead?” Here’s how she replied
India is the largest producer of movies in the entire world. Bollywood, Kollywood, Tollywood, Mollywood, Sandalwood and other regional cinema industries together produce more movies than any nations in the world.
Indian film industry is the world’s most profitable movie-making nation, with a net gross production of 800 to 1,000 movies every year that is almost double of the net creation produced by Hollywood. There has been a common perception that the quality of South Indian cinemas have killed the Bollywood film industry.
While speaking at the India Today Conclave about the North vs South debate in cinema, Rakul Preet Singh said, “Cinema is a language of emotion and not boundaries. The conversation has started now but veteran stars like Sridevi and Tabu have all worked in the South. There have been so many films that have been remade then and now. Today, they reach the high so we are having a discussion. But the pandemic has made us have discussions about contents from the West, Korean or regional. The best of all worlds have come together.”
When she was asked if she believes Bollywood is ‘dead’, Rakul Preet replied, So, is Bollywood over? Rakul answered, “It’s just a phase. People love to write about things that are not working. But it takes a lot of effort behind a product. Today, South films are working but we are only talking about ones that released here. Others don’t release here and don’t work. Post the pandemic, the taste of the audience have changed. It’s not about South or Bollywood films working but the kind of cinema people want to watch. They need larger than life cinema.”
