R. Madhavan says we are competing at a global level
Actor R. Madhavan feels that language in no more a barrier in the world of cinema.
“Language is no more a barrier — not just between Bollywood and the southern industry, but between Hollywood, Bollywood, Tollywood and everywhere possible, because people are watching Interstellar and Gravity with as much intensity they are watching a Hindi or Tamil films. So, we are competing at a global level,” Madhavan said.
The actor, 47, says a good story and performance reach out to a wider audience.
“Baahubali was a dubbed film in Hindi and definitely a huge grosser. So, I think a well-told story and performances reach out to a global audience and we need to be global with our films,” he added.
Talking about his work, the Saala Khadoos actor said: “I have multiple projects waiting to go on the floor, but I have to really wrap my head around the next subject… Chanda Mama Door Ke is next on the cards and then a biopic. It’s a very interesting year ahead and there are a lot of challenges, but I’m just beginning to play the game.”
