Ranbir Kapoor’s film reignites South vs Hindi debate

Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor was excited about two of his films releasing this year, Shamshera and Brahmastra, both of which are big-budget action and adventure films. Shamshera was released across India yesterday and has opened to a very lukewarm response, with the footfalls at theatres also not being very impressive.

At the same time, with back-to-back Hindi films turning out to be disasters, it is common knowledge that Bollywood filmmakers and actors are looking to the south for stories, concepts, and even directors to make films in Hindi that could translate to box office success. With so much going on, the debate surrounding the supremacy of different language films in the country has once again come to the forefront.

While not every film in the South is turning out to be box office gold, the situation in the South is much better when compared to the situation in Hindi. As a result, the debate of South movies vs Bollywood movies has once again risen, and is creating quite the storm.
