Farhan Akhtar Says Hindi Film Industry Needs To Pull Up Their Socks

Farhan Akhtar said that while working on the OTT superhero series ‘Ms. Marvel’ was an amazing experience for him and people enjoy superhero movies, but Hindi movie heroes do what superheroes do – this too long.

“Our heroes have beaten an array of villains and sent them flying through the air since time immemorial,” pointed out Farhan, who is well known for his cult hits such as “Dil Chaahta Hai”, “Lakshya” and “Don’ , and now for webseries.

Farhan was speaking while chatting with the Russo Brothers, who were in Mumbai promoting their Netflix action flick, ‘The Gray Man’.

Bollywood has been battered lately as it faces stiff box office competition from superhero movies and content from South India. Farhan, who also runs production company Excel Entertainment with Ritesh Sidhwani, said while Hindi films may not have big budgets to compete with Hollywood content, the industry as a whole needs to pick up. his socks.

“As an Indian film fraternity, we may not have huge buying power over visual effects or budgets like Western films, but we need to up our game as audiences now have access to content from the world,” the actor-director-producer concluded.
