A day after Dasari Narayana Rao lambasted the vice-like grip of oligarchic forces on theatres, actor Siddharth hit out at the system on a social networking site.
"We grew up at a time when 4-5 films released together and if they were good, they did well. Today, big films release alone. Power talks! Every rule of the free market is being violated in film distribution today," he rues.
He continues, "This encourages bad cinema as it becomes financially viable. We have more screens in India today per square km than ever before, and yet 100s of films are doomed to never release because of the politics! Every time I meet a filmmaker with a completed film lying unreleased, it breaks my heart. The system is harshest on the most talented. Strange!"
The actor has rightly hit out at an arrangement that is detrimental to fair play and competitiveness.
