Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is preparing to release science fiction dramas 2.0 as a film distributor, said the southern film industry has made Hindi filmmakers feel inferior in a good way. Karan interacted with the media at a press conference 2.0 along with film antagonist Akshay Kumar and director S Shankar here on Saturday.
South Indian cinema is always advanced in terms of budget, scale and technology.
Asked about how Bollywood needed to improve its game, Karan said: "I think the great movement of many filmmakers in the south has pushed the movement even in Hindi cinema. I think it's because there 2.0 and there is a Robotfund Baahubali, that there will be cinema glasses that will really follow them. "
"We have the pride, the glory and the courage to make it because we have seen success. In many ways, the southern film industry has pioneered narrative and technology meeting movements for decades. They have stories, emotions, scale and technology banged on."
Karan said the southern film industry had made Hindi filmmakers feel inferior, but in a positive way.
"Some of us get caught up in habits. We don't get out of the habit. We believe that we are in a safe place but the reality is we don't. They have taught us and made us feel inferior in kindness. Ways."
"I say that positively because it encourages us to do much better. So far, we have had very few major events in the last decade especially by filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has provided beautiful cinema glasses. But now, you will see confusion and most of them and for that, thanks to the southern film industry. "
"So, more power. And hopefully the power of technology, narration, emotions, and success are always with them."
Because Karan has collaborated with two major South Indian films, when asked if he would ever direct south Indian films, he said: "No … I will always direct films in languages that I know because I believe I will be able to justify material much more good but collaborating with their vision is something that I hope I can always do. "
"I hope I will get a chance where the films will come to us at Dharma Productions which is of course the best of many … I hope that will happen. I am someone who is a big fan of Mr. Shankar's work, so I hope he bring back all the films to me and then we can do this together. "
