New Delhi: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who is on a promotional spree for her upcoming movie Ponniyin Selvan: I, spoke about the north vs south cinema debate during a promotional event in Delhi.
The actress said that we need to break away from the conventional way of looking at the film industry. She added that it’s a great time when people want to see the cinema from across the country.
“I think we need to break away from perceiving typical way of looking at artists and cinema. It’s such a great time right now, where all these barriers have gone down. People know our cinema nationally and in fact, they are hankering and wanting to see the cinema from every part,” news agency ANI quoted Aishwarya saying.
