In case your movie doesn’t work them nobody will make extra movies with you. And we’ve many examples to show that. Greater than all these, focus needs to be on psychological well being. That’s plaguing the world. The strain that’s on the younger folks in each stroll of life is affecting their psychological sanity. That needs to be checked out as a social downside. Stigmas round psychological well being needs to be addressed. So let’s take a look at the large image and never simply bash Bollywood and throw it beneath the bus.” he concludes.
