Hollywood films are a threat to Indian films, says Amitabh Bachchan!

Amitabh Bachchan feels that Hollywood films are a threat to Hindi cinema and is alarming. In 2016, big budget Hollywood films released alongside Hindi films raking in big moolah while trouncing their Hindi counterparts at the box-office.

Recollecting the meeting with the chief of a giant studio, he narrated, “I have been on several holidays to the US. Every time I used to go there, all these big corporations like Warner Bros, Sony, and Twentieth Century Fox used to send me letters saying they wantedto meet me. 

I used to ignore them. ‘Why would they want to meet me when they don’t even know me,’ I used to ask myself. Why are they sending me these letters? I had a lawyer friend in New York and he used to say, ‘Why don’t you go and meet them. There is no harm.’ 

So I finally went and for more than an hour, the chief who I met spoke non-stop about the entire film industry of our country. 

He had every knowledge of how we do our films, how we produce them, the financials, the distribution, the actors who they are and what they do.

I was shocked. I came back and asked my lawyer friend, ‘How did this happen?’ He said, ‘Mr. Bachchan go back home ,go back to your country because the Americans are coming. 

So get your house in order. Then he added, “We have to fight them. This is competition. We know that Hollywood is very powerful. Wherever it has gone, it has destroyed the local film industry. 

Be it United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain or Japan, everywhere they go they just take over and that’s what is happening here. So we have to fight. Competition is good”.
