Director Nikkhil Advani who made his directorial debut with Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, and Saif Ali Khan-starrer heartbreaking romantic drama Kal Ho Naa Ho in 2003 and also owns production house named Emmay Entertainment noted about the obstacles he thinks Hindi film industry has. In an interview with Film Companion, the filmmaker compared the south Indian film industries notably Telugu and Tamil ones with Bollywood. With the rising wave of South Indian film the director’s comment comes as a fuel to the increasing fire of their popularity. Let’s check out what he has said.

Nikkhil Advani said that the Bollywood director are just busy competing and they don’t celebrate each other

The 52-year-old told the entertainment industry,”The Hindi film industry has no unity. As a kid, I admired what Yash Chopra and Yash Johar used to do. Yash Johar worked as a production manager for Navketan and RK Films. The way Ramesh Sippy and BR Chopra used to work, we don’t have that.”

He also noted, “However, nowadays we are just busy competing and we don’t celebrate each other. The first thing we need to do is come together and say that ‘we are one’. Unfortunately, we don’t agree on anything, be it release windows or distribution module. Each for his own. Vinod Chopra will try to be some kind of rebel, first everybody will say ‘wow’ and then say ‘pagal hai yeh toh (he is crazy).”

Meanwhile, as for his forthcoming film the director is looking forward to the release of his next action thriller titled Vedaa. The film will feature John Abraham, Sharvari Wagh, Abhishek Bannerjee, and Tamannaah Bhatia as leads. As for the release it will hit the theatre on July 12. 

On top of that, this action thriller will collide with other anticipated ventures at the box office such as Akshay Kumar and Radhika Madan-starrer Sarfira, which is the official Hindi remake of the 2020 Tamil film Soorarai Pottru. The original flim was helmed by Sudha Kongara and starred popular actors Suriya and Aparna Balamurali. Kongara has also directed the Hindi remake as well.

Needless to say, it will be exciting to see who can capture the attention of the most crowd.
