Siddharth Wants The Country To Respect KGF’s Journey

Yash’s KGF: Chapter 2, directed by Prashanth Neel, grossed Rs 1200 crore at the box office worldwide. The film is still not done shattering box office records. After RRR, Pushpa and KGF 2’s success, the term pan-India has become a huge debate across the town. In an interview with IndiaToday.in, Siddharth has spoken about KGF 2 being called a pan-Indian film. Siddharth said, "I find it extremely funny. I've been working in multiple languages for more than 15 years, and I've been speaking in my voice. Nobody has ever dubbed for me. I have spoken as a Tamilian in Tamil films, as a local Telugu boy in Telugu films, and as a Bhagat Singh in Hindi films too. So for me, I would like them to be called Indian films because I think the word pan-India is very disturbingly disrespectful."

 
He further added, "And I don't mean to ruffle any feathers, but it's called othering. So, if you think that Hindi cinema is the superior industry, other big films should be called pan-India because they come from regional cinema, you are wrong. They cater to people across the country as well. But, these films will not be called Hindi films, they'll be called Bollywood films. What does that mean? Either you respect KGF’s journey and call it a Kannada film. What is this nonsense pan-India film? Otherwise, you respect its impact and you call it an Indian film. You don't say pan-Indian film, you say Indian film. I don't understand this word pan - it's a funny word."
