Hyderabad: Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar opened his view of South Indian films, especially Telugu films, in a discussion of what pan-Indian films are.
Karan admits that even Hindi films do not do as much business as recent Telugu films. He takes Allu Arjun’s recently released film “Pushpa” as an example to explain the commercial stamina of Telugu cinema.
“There was no promotion at all, and Allu Arjun’s” Pushpa “was released with just a few posters and trailers. Allu Arjun is not known in the north, but the movie made a lot of money from box office revenue. Can you imagine a scenario? Today, this is called the “pan-Indian epidemic,” said the Bollywood director.
Karan commented that the entire term “pan-Indian film” began with SS Rajamuri’s “Baahubali”. He said that “Baahubali 1” was trading 11.2 billion rupees, while Rajamuri’s previous work “McKee” earned only 100 million rupees on the Hindi belt.
Karan also predicts that Rajamuri’s next masterpiece, “RRR,” will be one of the biggest openers and could collect 30 rupees on the first day of the Hindi version in India.
