Actor Irrfan Khan, says commercial Hindi films lack focus when it comes to dealing with important issues. He fears due to this fact the danger of losing young audience is lurking over the country’s entertainment world.
“In today’s time, storytelling is changing. The young audience is watching Hollywood cinema more and more but the is not able to provide them intelligent entertainment where the film is not just a time pass, but also has something else about them,” Irrfan said.
“Regional cinema is talking about regional issues… It is incorporating those issues which are of people’s concern. But Hindi commercial cinema generalises them… It doesn’t really talk about a specific thing. That’s where it loses its focus,” he added.
Irrfan’s latest film ‘Madaari’ talks about a common man’s ordeal when he loses his son in a tragic incident.
He says more filmmakers should offer better content to the audience.
“In Hollywood, writers are respected much more than in India. They are paid much more and they are secure. We are seeing a change in the Indian film industry as well and I hope we could inspire many more writers and they could get their due and space,” the actor who also acts in Hollywood films said. – CINEWS
