South Indian films were mocked in North India ten years ago, Yash.

Yash from KGF claims that 10 years ago, North India made fun of South films.

At the movie office, South films currently rule the roost, but this wasn’t always the case. For many years, Bollywood was regarded as India’s preeminent film industry, making it difficult for films from the four southern sectors to compete with Hindi movies. In a recent interview, KGF actror Yash claimed that for years, films from the south were presented poorly in the north, almost as a joke.

Yash, the star of KGF, explains why, ten years ago, North India made fun of South cinema.

“Here, dubbed movies rose to popularity ten years ago (North India). However, they all originally began to watch with diverse viewpoints. South flicks used to be made fun of. They questioned, “What is this action, everything is flying,” asking, “Yeh kya action hai, udd raha hai sab.””

“That’s how it started and eventually they got hooked on to that and they started understanding that art form. The problem with that was our films were sold for a bare minimum price, people used to do bad quality dubbing and it used to be presented in a bad way with funny names,” According to India Today’s citation of Yash.

“People started becoming familiar with our dubbed films. It was long pending. Credit goes to SS Rajamouli sir. If you have to break a rock, continuous effort is needed. Baahubali gave that push.” Yash concluded by saying, “KGF was done with a different intention. What KGF was that it was not done to intimidate, but to inspire. People have now started noticing South films.”

Kantara, a Kannada film by Rishab Shetty, is another regional film that leaves everyone in awe. It is currently among the highest-grossing Indian movies of 2022.
