Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds recently said that “Hollywood finally mimicking Bollywood" while promoting his latest film 'Free Guy'. Now, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has reacted to that.
Sharing an Instagram story featuring Ryan’s statement, Kangana Ranauat said that not only mimicking Bollywood but Hollywood was also trying to steal Indian theatre screens. “And trying to steal our screens…,” the 'Thalaivii' actor wrote.
While describing the various elements of the film, Ryan noted that Free Guy had all the tropes of a typical Bollywood movie. “If you’re wondering whether Hollywood is just mimicking Bollywood…Well, the answer is yes. We have no shame, no shame at all,” Reynolds said in the video.
This is not the first time Kangana has shown her disapproval to Hollywood dominating Indian screens.
While promoting her recent release Thalaivii, she said that “We need to discourage American and English movies as they are taking over our screens. We need to behave like one nation. We need to stop dividing ourselves like North India or South India. We need to enjoy our own films first, be it Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu or Punjabi.”
'Thalaivii' is a 2021 Indian biographical drama film based on the life of Indian actress-politician J. Jayalalithaa. The film stars Kangana Ranaut as Jayalalithaa and Arvind Swami as M. G. Ramachandran. Shot simultaneously in Tamil and Hindi, it is directed by A. L. Vijay.
The film also features Nassar, Bhagyashree, Raj Arjun, Madhoo, Jisshu Sengupta, Thambi Ramaiah, Shamna Kasim and Samuthirakani in supporting roles.
