Anurag Kashyap, who is busy promoting his upcoming film Dobaaraa with producer Ekta Kapoor, has recently launched the trailer for their upcoming science fiction thriller Dobaaraa. The upcoming film stars Taapsee Pannu in the lead role. And what made Anurag shine in the limelight was when the filmmaker was asked about his opinion on why Hindi films are not doing as well as some popular South Indian films.
First, he mocks the Bollywood director, who is switching from their genre and trying new things. Kashyap said, “Because our Hindi films are not rooted, this is the simple answer. When you see Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam films, they’re rooted in their culture, whether that’s mainstream or non-mainstream culture. But our films are not rooted.”

He then added, “Here, people who can’t speak Hindi, who speak English, are making Hindi films. Wherever the films are rooted, they work. When our mainstream filmmakers make their kind of films, they work.
While mocking the directors, he said, “Gangubai Kathiawadi, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 worked because the two filmmakers made the kind of films they usually make. Other filmmakers are attempting to make those films which they don’t usually, they’re trying to impress, changing genres. The moment we go rooted, our films will work.”
Meanwhile, Taapse Pannu plays a lead role in the film. Also, the upcoming film “Dobaaraa” is rumoured to be the Hindi remake of the 2018 Spanish movie “Mirage”. The mystery drama is set to be released on August 19.
