27th Apr, 2022

Presently, Abhishek Bachchan is enjoying the success of his latest movie, Dasvi, which also featured Nimrat Kaur and Yami Gautam in the lead. 

Now, in a media chat, the Guru actor shared his views on pan-Indian films and disclosed that he does not believe in the term. The Yuva actor also refused to accept the claim that the Bollywood industry is lacking in terms of content. Abhishek told that every actor is a part of the same Indian film industry. Though they might work in 'different languages', they all cater to the 'same audience'. 

Furthermore, the actor revealed that interesting content is made in all the industries, Abhishek remembered how Alia Bhatt's Gangubai Kathiawadi and Akshay Kumar's Sooryavanshi also did pretty well. He told that at the end of the day, the audience is only wanting to be entertained. Abhishek revealed, "It is not entirely fair to label any film industry. Films in Hindi or any language have always been remade. It is not a new phenomenon. There has always been an exchange (of content) all the time. Nothing wrong in that.” He further added that remaking movies is a 'choice.' 

Speaking about the success of the South films, he told, “A good film works, a bad film doesn’t." The actor spoke about how films like KGF 2, Pushpa, and RRR are doing well. He said that they've always 'done well'. Abhishek also specified that even Bollywood movies have done well in the South. "It is not a new phenomenon. We are part of a large family. So, the exchange of content is bound to happen. The exchange doesn’t happen because there is a dearth of ideas in a certain industry. It is a choice we make as a creator," told Jr. Bachchan.
