Karan Johar, the director-cum-producer of Indian Cinema, has recently talked about his concerns regarding Bollywood movies in Berlinale 2018. There, he represented Indian delegation to talk about Indian film industry. Indian films are still being labeled as a song-and-dance routine in the global circuit, something which troubles Karan a lot. He thinks it hinders the growth of Indian cinema and he believes that Indian movies have much more to offer than the clichéd sequences which have recently been exposed through cinemas like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Padman and Bareilly Ki Barfi.
“I feel very sad when I still see people across the globe having this misconception about Indian cinema,” stated Karan. “We can change this stereotypical view only when we from the entertainment industry show people that we have a lot more to offer in terms of storytelling and content,” his passionate statement declared. His team also included artists like Vani Tripathi, Bhumi Pednekar, Jahnu Barua and Shaji Karun, who have been selected to take part in the European Film Market by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry.
