Varun Dhawan on South industry overpowering Bollywood: Lots of good Hindi films are coming up
Directed by Raj Mehta and produced by Dharma Productions, Jugjugg Jeeyo is slated to release on June 24 in cinemas.
The debate over South films overpowering Bollywood does not seem to end anytime soon. Recently, Varun Dhawan who is on a promotion spree for his upcoming film, Jugjugg Jeeyo shared his opinion on the matter. The actor said that a lot of good films are coming up which will bring back the lost glory of Hindi cinema.
During a media interaction, Varun was quizzed about how the Bollywood films are failing at the box office and South films are turning into blockbusters. Defending the Hindi film industry, the actor pointed out, "7-8 major flops have happened in their cinema also. That has also happened because nothing was released in the last 2 and a half years. I feel a good film will come. In the Hindi film industry, we have a lot of good films coming up. Every film can't be a hit. The audience won't watch a bad film, whether it is English, Hindi, or a South film. They will not watch."
Talking about the three South films-Pushpa: The Rise, KGF : Chapter 2, and RRR which took the box office by storm ravaging Hindi films, he said, "Cinema is doing well right now. The audience has the right to watch the cinema they want to watch. Hollywood films have been working for so many years. It is because they are liking it and, therefore, they are watching it. I myself enjoyed watching KGF 2 . I had a great time watching it. It is one of the biggest grossers right now."
Speaking of Jugjugg Jeeyo, the upcoming family drama is centered on the complexities of relationship after marriage. Apart from Varun, the film stars Kiara Advani , Anil Kapoor , Neetu Kapoor, Maniesh Paul, and Prajakta Kohli in pivotal roles. Directed by Raj Mehta and produced by Dharma Productions , the film is slated to release on June 24 in cinemas.
