Naga Chaitanya has stated that he does not like makers who approach him with the thought that their movie would be bigger than Baahubali, RRR, KGF and Pushpa. The three films, which were predominantly created in the South Indian film industry, have set a benchmark in filmmaking. Thus, many filmmakers aim to be where they are.
However, Naga Chaitanya does not promote that mentality. The actor is in fact of the opinion that all the three movies started off not comparing themselves or taking a reference point but being true to what they were making. “It connected to such a wider audience because of the honesty,” he shared.
In an interview to Bollywood Hungama, Chay said that he does not like it when filmmakers approach him with the mentality that they are going to make a movie bigger than Baahubali, RRR or KGF. “I find it disrespectful when they compare their films to those,” the actor added, concluding that it is not the right way to pick a project.
SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali had set a record in India that is still to be broken. Allu Arjun’s Pushpa: The Rise came close to the record in 2021 and by 2022, KGF: Chapter 2 and RRR made headlines as they broke the Box Office record in the Hindi version itself.
All the films were made for pan-Indian audiences but predominantly brought the South Indian film industry back at the forefront. While Baahubali, Pushpa and RRR are Telugu films, KGF introduced Kannada film industry to Bollywood, through superstar Yash.
While the South Indian film industry is being honoured by the fans, various South Indian actors, including Naga Chaitanya are making their debut in Bollywood soon. He will be making his debut with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, releasing on August 11.
