Ayushmann Khurrana talks about RRR and KGF Chapter 2; says ‘I would love to attempt something like that’
The success of masterpieces like RRR and KGF Chapter 2 has stirred up a new topic of discussion amongst movie lovers as well as celebrities-- the Bollywood vs South debate.
The Indian film industry gave movie lovers a lot of gems in the past few months. Alia Bhatt shined in Gangubai Kathiawadi whereas Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani ’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is unstoppable at the box office. Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli’s RRR and Yash starrer KGF Chapter 2 broke several records! We were introduced to a whole new world of cinema with unique new stories and incredible performances. However, with so many blockbusters came a new debate-- the Bollywood vs South debate. Most of the country is now divided about which film industry is ‘better’!
Well, in a recent interview with Filmfare, Ayushmann Khurrana was asked if films like RRR and KGF Chapter 2 are a ‘wake-up call’ for Bollywood filmmakers. To this, he replied, “I have never tried that territory. I would love to attempt something like that, but the script should resonate with me. I loved Gangubai Kathiawadi, which was a visual delight and poetic, and it was a hit. So the films are working. If you have something new to give, you can excite the audience with any genre or subject. I realised that a film has to be a family entertainer to begin with. The family should go together to watch it; otherwise, each has a home screen or a phone to watch different kinds of entertainment.”
Rohit Shetty says South industry has long existed but trend of 'Bollywood Khatam' will never happen
Sometime back, filmmaker and action king Rohit Shetty also weighed in on the north-south cinema debate. He explained that 'Bollywood khatam' is a trend that will never happen. Superstar Kamal Haasan also opened up about the topic during the promotions of his next film Vikram. He explained that while we speak different languages, we are united and that’s our country’s beauty.
