    Bollywood has landed in quite a pickle in the post-pandemic world. With back-to-back flops, the Hindi film industry is currently facing tough competition from mass entertainers of the South. While nearly every celebrity on the block has been questioned about what Bollywood is doing wrong, Mithun Chakraborty , the star of 2022’s only subject driven hit The Kashmir Files has now shared his view on the current situation.

    Mithun was asked in an interview about South’s mega hits like RRR and KGF 2 becoming blockbusters and what Bollywood might be doing wrong in the era ruled by these projects. The veteran star offered his perspective and even compared these films to his larger-than-life mass entertainers from the 80s and 90s.

    The actor also claimed that these films have managed to judiciously use the super stardom of its actors like Ram Charan, Jr. NTR and Yash with some amazing timing.

    Talking to ETimes, Mitun said, “Just see the films like RRR, Pushpa or KGF 2. Why do they become such big hits? Because people can relate to the story and its mass appeal. I think these films are quite similar to those larger-than-life masala films I used to in the 80s and 90s. The most important thing is you have to play to the gallery. The superstardom of South superstars like Yash, Ram Charan, Jr NTR or Allu Arjun has been used in these films with some amazing timing. That’s why people loved them so much.”

    Mithun has been the face of mass entertainers like Disco Dancer, Dance Dance, Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki, Commando , Pyar Jhukta Nahi, Mujhe Insaaf Chahiye among several other hits. This year, Mithun made a back comeback at the box office with the blockbuster The Kashmir Files which is based on the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits in the 90s.
