Mumbai: Bollywood famous Director and producer Karan Johar, who landed under discussion in relation to the AIB knockout video and this time Karan said on his twitter that he believes in promoting regional cinema.
As per the latest updates, Maharashtra government is planning to make screening of Marathi movies in the state’s multiplexes mandatory during prime time slots.
Karan Johar said, “I do believe in promoting regional cinema be it Marathi or Bengali but I am not sure if putting restrictions or rules and regulations will help that process.”
He added, “I don’t know many details about the whole strategy behind doing that but I believe empowering Marathi cinema is a way forward. I feel when you force it and not enforce it, there is always a problem.”
He also said, “Sometimes there is a common perception that regional cinema does not have an audience. Riteish Deshmukh’s Lai Bhari made huge numbers at the box office. It released the same weekend as Humpty Sharma and it dented the collections of my film.”
