‘Filmmakers Should Know Who They Are Collaborating With’: ‘KGF 2’ Actor Yash On Why Hindi Films Don’t Work In South
Yash revealed what made ‘KGF’ click all over India and why Hindi films aren’t as well received in the south
Within hours of its release, KGF: Chapter 2 has stirred up a storm. The movie is one of the most-awaited and most-celebrated releases of this year and has been making headlines ever since its announcement.
Recently, Yash revealed some interesting aspects of why KGF works in the north and the south.
While the rest of the world is wondering how KGF made it big as a Pan-India film, Yash gives us his take on why Hindi films don’t find much acceptance in the south.
The actor said said “The Hindi filmmakers should see other aspects apart from just releasing the film in the south. It is important to know who you are collaborating with. The way we collaborated with Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment in North is one of the reasons why the film is a big success. Similarly, they need to collaborate with good production houses in the south; who can sell the movie the way Excel has done for the KGF franchise. I would like to see that situation where film releases pan India and I hope that happens soon.”
Released nationwide today, in Kannada, Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, and Malayalam, KGF.: Chapter 2 is written and directed by Prashanth Neel, one of the most sought-after directors, and produced by Vijay Kiragandur, under the Hombale Films banner. One of the emerging pan-India production houses, Hombale Films has set standards by showcasing some of the biggest films in Indian cinema over the next two years, including the much-awaited film ‘Salaar’ starring Prabhas.
The film is presented by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment and AA Films. Excel has given super hits like Dil Chahta Hai, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Dil Dhadakne Do, and Gully Boy, to name a few.
