Manoj Bajpayee is the latest to talk about the North-South debate taking place in Bollywood. The debate began after viewers started believing that South Indian movies provide better content than the North. Manoj gave his take on that and shared that India doesn’t end from Kashmir to Delhi for him.
The actor was talking to ETimes, where he shared that he has been a part of Hindi films majorly but has also done Telugu and Tamil films. He revealed that he almost worked in a Kannada film and loves Malayalam cinema. Not just the South Indian film industry, Manoj is also planning to make his debut in the Bangla film industry.
“Mere liye India Kashmir se lekar Kanyakumar tak hai. Woh Kashmir se le kar ke Delhi tak nahi khatam hota hai,” he asserted. Manoj added that it is how he views India and would want to continue viewing it that way.
The actor further shared that if a Telugu film works well, it makes him just as proud as a Hindi film does. He emphasized that dividing it in a regional manner is just not fair. In fact, he is of the opinion that the debate is good because we now have an Indian film industry.
Manoj wants his viewers in North, South, West and East too. Thus, he worked according to that mentality.
This gem of an actor is extremely grateful that his web series The Family Man could connect with people all across India, without the borders. It is to be noted that the series is available for viewing in various languages.
“Cinema kisi khaas region ka nahi ho sakta hai,” he said. The actor smiled and signed off saying that cinema is for the whole wide world.
