SS Rajamouli’s recent releases of RRR and KGF 2 in the Hindi version have done a record-breaking business. It has not only drawn the attention of the audience but also impacted the other Bollywood release such as Jersey. On this, Nawazuddin Siddiqui believes that the impact of the South Indian films on Bollywood will soon vanish. According to him, it is just a ‘phase’ and as soon as the Hindi films become a massive hit, all the fame that South Indian films have acquired would disappear. Nawazuddin had also pinpointed the fact that Bollywood has made a big mistake by remaking South Indian films. He said, “One mistake that happened is that we kept doing remakes of South films. The biggest problem here is with the writers and stories, we are not making originals at all, leaving everything up to the remakes. I think we should take a lesson from that mistake and start making original films. That would be better.”
On being asked if Bollywood would be affected by the release of South Indian films, Nawazuddin said, “I think it’s just a phase, now if a Bollywood film comes and becomes a super-duper hit, then the things you are saying right now, that will change. Here people’s thoughts change after every picture, people only talk about the film that becomes a hit. But if a Hindi picture comes now and becomes a super-duper hit, this perception will change again.”
Amidst all these, Nawazuddin is all set to promote his upcoming film Heropanti 2 which would be starring Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria alongside. Heropanti 2 presents Tiger’s character Babloo who will be seen locking horns with Nawazuddin’s Laila in a bid to stop cyber crimes across the world.
