Aishwarya on the North vs South cinema debate – The New Indian Express

By ANI

NEW DELHI: Amid the ongoing debate over North versus South cinema, as the latter industry produces massive pan-Indian hits, Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan recently expressed his views saying “we need to break with the typical way of looking at the movie industry.”

“I think we need to break away from the typical way of perceiving artists and cinema. It’s such a good time right now, where all these barriers have come down. People know our cinema nationally and in fact , they yearn and want to see cinema from every side,” Aishwarya said at an event in Delhi.

Aishwarya also shared how southern films are doing well across the country.

“Anyone can see cinema for what it is, across India. So I think we need to break away from that conventional way of thinking and help our viewers, audiences and readers not fall into that typical way of seeing art. Art has always been there, found audiences and been appreciated, just like the artists. But the avenues were limited,” she said.

She urged the public to work together for the release.

“It’s so evident that people are embracing and relishing cinema all over the country, which is such a great, very liberating time for all of us. We need to collectively empower this liberation together,” the actor continued.

‘Ponniyin Selvan-Part 1’ is a film adaptation of the Tamil novel of the same name by author Kalki Krishnamurthy which was released as a serial in the 1950s. It is Aishwarya’s third collaboration with Southern actor Vikram after their critically acclaimed 2010 film “Raavan”.
