Simply South overtakes Bollywood! Thanks to Rajini!!
Amir Khan
Indian cinema churns out the highest number of films outside of Hollywood. But the true range of the industry is quite amazing because of the number of languages in which the films are made. There are in all about 22 different languages and dialects spoken in this country. We make films in at least 10 of them. However, to an average viewer it seems that the world of Indian films begins and ends with Hindi cinema. Of course, it is a huge establishment and money that is pumped into the projects there are simply, mind-boggling.
The fate of the Hindi film stars, the Khan clan, decides the barometer of the health of the industry. Every move of theirs is followed closely. Every word uttered by them is faithfully noted.
The Southern Phenomenon

There is however a lion of a performer if you move out of Bollywood and the trophy goes to regional cinema. Much as it would seem that we are trying to fan the controversy of the Hindi vs other cinema, there are figures to prove that south Indian cinema comes out with flying colours by any performance yardstick. Hindi cinema is like a giant moving about puffing and panting while south Indian cinema is a vibrant, thriving stallion. There is organic growth in the industry down south.
Rajini & Kamal
They get picked for projects in Hindi as well. The south Indian stars are famous for their discipline and professionalism and the industry is famous for its organized working style.
