R Madhavan (R Madhavan) says that it is useless to get into the debate of Bollywood and South cinema, because things are constantly changing in the film industry and no one can predict how people will get the film. In the year 2022, only three Hindi films – ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, ‘The Kashmir Files’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ have been hits.
In the South, SS Rajamouli’s Telugu film ‘RRR’, Kannada film ‘KGF Chapter 2’ and Allu Arjun’s Telugu film ‘Pushpa’ have set new records at the box office. Madhavan said in a press conference during the promotion of his film ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ that it is useless to argue that why South films are doing good business in the Hindi region?
R Madhavan: Difficult to predict audience reaction
R Madhavan says, ‘If you think there is a rule to be successful, then you can lose everything, because things are changing every day. I hope other films do well in the coming years and a new trend will start. I don’t think we can predict how the audience will react.
R Madhavan: Hindi films are also performing well
Madhavan believes that the popularity of South films does not mean that Hindi films are not doing well at the box office. He says, ‘Baahubali, RRR, KGF and Pushpa have earned more than Hindi films because they have a fan following across India and they have been made on a large scale. However, this does not mean that Hindi films have not been successful. ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, ‘The Kashmir Files’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ have also been big hits.
R Madhavan: Hard work of actors like Allu Arjun paid off
He further says, ‘I believe that in this Corona period, there has been a change in the mindset of the audience. After Kovid, the patience and tolerance of the people has reduced. He said that the success of South’s films can be attributed to the hard work of actors like NTR Jr., Ram Charan, Allu Arjun.
