Anupam Kher on Bollywood vs South debate 

Just like several other actors and filmmakers these days, Anupam Kher also shared his views on the ongoing Bollywood vs South debate. Earlier this year, Anupam starred in the massively popular hindi film 'The Kashmir Files' and recently he worked in a Telugu film 'Karthikeya 2' so his statement on this issue has to be a well informed one.

The actor shared that Southern film are selling stories while Bollywood movies are trying to sell their stars. Anupam told ETimes, "You make things for consumers. (Problem starts) the day you start looking down on consumers, that, ‘we're doing you a favour by making a great film. Now you are watching a great film.’ Greatness is achieved by a collective effort and that I have learnt by doing films in Telugu...I just did another film in Telugu, I did a film in the Tamil language, I’m going to do a Malayalam film."

He further added, "I think over there, I’m not differentiating between the two but I think (their) cinema is relevant because they are not aping Hollywood. They are telling stories, over here we are selling stars."
