‘Hindi cinema universal, but regional cinema incredible’

Amitabh Bachchan says Hindi cinema may be universal because of its language factor in the country, but he finds the immense presence of regional cinema to be “incredible”.

The actor was recently down south to shoot for a commercial with southern superstars. In a photograph which he posted on his blog and Twitter account, the Big B is seen dressed in a traditional outfit, and he is standing alongside younger superstars Prabhu, Vikram Prabhu, Akkineni Nagarjuna and Shiva Rajkumar.

On Twitter, the image was captioned: “With the greats of the Southern film Industry... privileged honoured. Their Father's Icons of my early years.” The actor feels “regional cinema has elevated the local talents to immense heights and needs to be lauded for its enterprising efforts”. He took to his blog and wrote: “Marathi cinema, for example, is coming out with some of the most prolific content in recent times.”
