Hollywood seems to have taken over the Bollywood Box Office off late, with films like The Jungle Book, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Batman vs Superman and Conjuring 2 dominating at the ticket window.
While many are of the opinion that Bollywood will not be affected by this trend, Raman Raghav 2.0 director Anurag Kashyap believes that this is a warning sign to Indian film makers.
In an exclusive interview with Catch for the promotions of Raman Raghav, the director revealed that Hollywood films have proved a point by getting acceptance in India.
"Hollywood films have proved a point that people are ready to adapt universal subjects. They are ready to dub their films in different languages; their content is good so it is a warning sign for our industry to grow up," said Kashyap.
On being questioned if the humongous budgets that Hollywood films are mounted on add on to their advantage, he said:
"They have the advantage of the language. When I say advantage of the language, it is the same thing what Hindi films have over regional films in India. All people speak English and they reach out more. That is one of the reasons their films make more money and since they make more money, they get more budget."
Raman Raghav 2.0, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vicky Kaushal and Sobhita Dhulipala, releases on 24 June.
