Ram Charan about the rise of South cinema and becoming a global superstar
The Telugu superstar, who recently attended the India Today Conclave 2023, spoke extensively about his acting career, future projects, personal life, and much more. Interestingly, host Rajdeep Sardesai asked Ram Charan about the rise of southern cinema, and becoming a global superstar without going to Bollywood. "Not just RRR, we've seen with Southern cinema in general - the rise of Southern cinema in the last 18 months. One blockbuster after the other. Is there a renewed sense of confidence that you have? Like 'I don't have to go to Bollywood now to make it. I'm a global superstar without going to Bollywood.'?, asked the senior journalist.
"Yes. This has begun and it had a very strong impact on our films. In Telugu, it happening with Baahubali and now crossing all boundaries. I feel RRR is a big hit not because it is from the South. We have so many industries from Bengal to Tamil Nadu in the South. We have fantastic directors. And I feel what will really make an impact with the west, is the stories that are rooted in our stories," stated the actor, who made his Bollywood debut with the Zanjeer remake.
"Magadheera was like that. Lagaan was like that. Parasite from Korea - it was their own story. Anybody who makes films from their culture, struggles, and emotions - India has all of that. And the West and global audience are ready to accept somebody who is original," explained Ram Charan.
