Richa Chadha On South industry vs Bollywood: South’s films are dominated at this time in the entertainment industry. South films are dominated at the box office. First RRR (RRR) then KGF Chapter 2 (KGF Chapter 2), these films have rocked. These films have made many records in their name. While South’s films are dominated at the box office, Hindi films are not able to show anything amazing. The box office performance of Hindi films is very disappointing. There is a debate going on in the industry on this. Now actress Richa Chadha has given her opinion on this. Richa has worked in both Bollywood and South industries.
Richa Chadha talks about this in an interview given to indianexpress.com Richa explains the reason behind the hits of South Industry films and said that she has corrected her maths in numbers and ticket price. Giving the example of Vijay starrer Master, Richa said that people from the fan club go to see the film. Unlike the Hindi film industry and its greedy distributors, they keep ticket prices from 100 to 400. Be it a hit or not. At the same time, the ticket price in Bollywood is more than Rs 400. Due to which less people come to see the film.
Film distribution problem
Richa further said that the problem lies between the distribution of films. Where there is a need to control the price of theater tickets. Recently a film has been released on theatres, I hope it will soon be released on OTT platform as well. His leads were in the air but when the first day collections of the film came out, his collection was less than one-third of Hero’s fee. If cinema is to survive, the big stakeholders in the industry must take responsibility.
Let us tell you that Pushpa, RRR and KGF Chapter 2 have been released in the last few months. Which are still prevalent everywhere. Today Ranveer Singh’s Jayeshbhai Jordar has been released in theaters. Now the box office collection of Ranveer’s film is awaited. It has to be seen how amazing Ranveer’s film can show on the first day.
