Read on to know everything you should about the same.
As per Hindustan Times, Anurag Kashyap said, “They have liked films from India for a very long time. But they like one kind of film. There was a time Indian films released worldwide. Awara, Disco Dancer, everybody singing Jimmy Jimmy. You go to Africa, you go to Arab countries, India has a very massive impact of the mainstream. Somewhere within our mainstream, we stopped being original. Our mainstream started to become cheap copies of Hollywood action movies or something else.”
Anurag Kashyap also added, “Whereas movies from down South are still grounded, they still look like Indian films. A lot of Hindi mainstream doesn’t look like Indian films, it’s not even shot in India. It’s not even about India, which is why RRR surprises them and scores. RRR takes them totally by surprise. Within the context of an Indian film, it does those very things at a much lower cost than them.”
