An Interview offered by Rana Daggubati to a popular YouTube Channel operating from North India went viral. Our Macho Hero didn't hesitate to offer a tight slap to the Host, who kept trying to convey South Indian Films are inferior & stereotypical, with his befitting reply.
The Host claimed Mani Ratnam's 'Roja' was the first South Indian Film she watched in her childhood. She added, 'I grew up having a very stereotypical view of movies made down South until My Father forced Me to watch Baahubali. I had no clue what it was at that time. I went then and staring at the screen, I was like 'Is this real?'. Do you think Baahubali changed the way rest of India views the South Indian Films?'.
In reply, Rana said: 'I was just amazed at how dumb Indians are about the other States. Ultimately, Story Telling is the same be it a Telugu Film or Tamil Film or English Film. If I speak in Telugu, It becomes a Telugu Film. If someone speaks in English, It becomes an English Film. That's exactly what happens anywhere in the world. But, We in our heads creates division...this is a Telugu Industry, that's a Tamil Industry. Films of Rajinikanth are dubbed in all languages. Which means, There is actually no boundary to this unless you make one'.
