“Bollywood may be bigger in size and popular, but it still needs to learn from the Tamil film industry. I’ve shot for a few films in Tamil Nadu, and built strong camaraderie with the industry, and in turn have understood how disciplined they are and the affection with which they treated me. This is something Bollywood needs to learn from them. The Indian film industry may be the largest in the world but a major proportion of it consists of the southern film industry. The Tamil film industry is the pivotal part in the south and one can’t ignore it, come what may.” said Amitabh Bachchan when speaking at an event in Tamil Nadu last Thursday.
Also, the outrage for the Delhi gang rape of the 23 year old girl has been growing in number and regarding this , Amitabh Bachchan said that more than 50% of the population were women and that they should be treated with dignity and equality and any form of disrespect towards them should be punished severely.
