The term pan Indian has lost its meaning now, says Adivi Sesh

The South Indian blockbusters films which perform well in Hindi speaking regions of the country are put under a new category called pan Indian films. While some actors/filmmakers believe it to be the future of Indian Cinema, there are some who believe that it is nothing more than a media gimmick. Actor Adivi Sesh, who also starred in 'Bahubali' (the film which started the whole pan Indian craze), believes that the term pan Indian has lost its meaning now a days.

In a recent conversation with The Indian Express, the actor said, "I believe the word pan-India has been somewhat abused. It sounded good in the beginning as it felt like we are catering to Indians across the country. But then it started sounding a bit like an euphemism for a dubbed film. On the contrary I believe, in my heart, that a film like Uri: The Surgical Strike is a pan-India film because we loved it in Hyderabad, Kashmir, Mumbai and so on.

Adivi also added that he doesn't consider his 'Major' a pan Indian project. He stated, "No. It is an all Indian film. At the end of the day, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan was born in Kerala and grew up in Bangalore. He was a captain in Hyderabad cantonment and a training officer in Haryana. He also fought in Kargil. And he saved hundreds in Mumbai. If that’s not all Indian, then I don’t know what is."
