'RRR' filmmaker Speaks about why Bollywood is going through a lean patch

In a candid conversation with popular film journalist Anupama Chopra at Filmmakers' Adda 2022, leading actor-directors spoke about why Bollywood is going through a rough patch.  

Kamal Haasan: I would advise Bollywood to watch Indian cinema before watching Hollywood movies. There were phases in my career when nothing seemed to be working but I just kept going. I cannot speak for others, but many Hindi films have inspired me. All that Bollywood needs to do is work harder, and I’m sure they’ll reap the benefits. It’s absolutely important to stay connected with the audience because usually, we are surrounded by producers and friends who don’t let us hear about criticism. 

SS Rajamouli: I don’t think there’s any formula, but one should not get complacent. We need to come out of our comfort zone. But if you look at the primary reason, I think Bollywood did suffer with the entry of corporates. The remunerations were increased significantly and correspondingly, the ‘hunger’ of the actors came down which wasn’t the case with the South film industry. But we should also be careful to avoid the same mistake. Our movies are doing good business right at the time of the film’s announcement and we cannot afford to get comfortable. 

Gautham Menon: Kamal Haasan sir was gracious enough to allow other big actors to share screen space with him in ‘Hitlist’. Rajamouli did that, and I think we need more of that. Good scripts, grandeur, ensemble casts, and event films are the characteristics of the current success brigade.
