Plenty of Bollywood stars made it to Cannes and wowed the red carpet this year. The fashion that actors carried at Cannes really pulled off, but is it enough to earn a global recognition for the India cinema?
The Cannes had began in 1946 and since then the Indian pictures held major prizes until the commencement of box office breaking culture. It’s been decades since a last movie was shown in a major contest. No Single Indian movie made it to Cannes despite of the fact that 1,845 features films were submitted.
The 32-year-old actor Huma Qureshi reacted to the issue and said ““We’re so obsessed with box office numbers that it will be a long time before that will really change.” Qureshi who was born in Delhi made debut at Cannes in 2012 for her first feature film “Gangs of Wasseypur”.
The Actor said “I don’t think we have the budgets or the willingness for people to actually invest in these kinds of films. We are still more interested in making the quintessential Bollywood film -- that’s essentially where the market is right now.” Let’s wait and see how the Indian movies make progress at this international stage next year.
