Bollywood is often associated with larger than life song and dance sequences and storylines that beat common sense. It sometimes takes people’s intelligence for a ride. But Hindi cinema isn’t Bollywood. Bollywood is just a part of the whole picture.
Farah Khan is the director of films like Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om, Tees Maar Khan and Happy New Year. These movies are about entertainment.
“This will be a constant factor… These people should be made to watch French or Polish cinema. Their punishment should be that they should be made to watch boring films for their whole life,” Farah told IANS over phone.
Farah, who has choreographed dance routines for more than 100 songs in over 80 Hindi films, also pointed out how people in foreign countries love Bollywood for its elaborate song and dance sequences.
She said: “Whenever I go abroad, (I see) the love they have for Bollywood. They love our films, songs and dances. These people (criticising Bollywood) should look at the industry from outsiders’ perspective. For us, Bollywood has become ghar ki murgi (idiom used to describe a situation where one undervalues things which he owns).”
Farah is currently judging the Indian Idol 9 and has recently been part of the panel in “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9”
