New Dehli: In the last few years, films made in the South Indian industry have created a lot of impact on Hindi-speaking people. Films like KGF, Bahaubali, Sivaji, Dear Comrade, and Arjun Reddy won the hearts of people as well as performed well at the box office.

However, the actors of South Indian films alleged that they still feel like outsiders in Bollywood. They do not get the same respect in the industry compared to their counterpart in Bollywood.

Let’s check how the South Indian celebs feel in Bollywood in their own words.

1. Mahesh Babu

Talking about Bollywood, Mahesh Babu said I don’t think they can afford me so it would be better for me not to waste my time working in an industry which can’t afford me. He added, ”The respect and the stardom I get in South in huge, so I never really thought of leaving my industry and going to some other industry.”

Yash who gained a lot of fame in Hindi cinema from KGF says I was always against the divide between south and north Indian films. I think, an Indian film and that it should be present like that.

In ‘Pushpa: The Rise’, Allu Arjun surprised everyone with his performance. He is still to make his Bollywood debut, but he said, ”When we are the protagonist of the film that we do, we should be offered to play a protagonist. I would not be interested in anything…If any comes with an offer to play a second role.”
