Bollywood needs to learn from the Tamil film industry: Amitabh Bachchan

Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan thinks that Bollywoood needs to learn a lot from the Tamil film industry, which is far more disciplined.


Bollywood may be bigger in size and popular, but it still needs to learn from the Tamil film industry. I’ve shot for a few films in Tamil Nadu, and built strong camaraderie with the industry, and in turn have understood how disciplined they are and the affection with which they treated me.

Amitabh Bachchan said at the closing ceremony of the 10th Chennai International Film Festival (CIFF).

This is something Bollywood needs to learn from them. The Indian film industry may be the largest in the world but a major proportion of it consists of the southern film industry. The Tamil film industry is the pivotal part in the south and one can’t ignore it come what may.
