Irrfan Khan: I object to the term Bollywood

Irrfan Khan - D-Day
Irrfan Khan è attualmente a Londra ospite del London Indian Film Festival. Vi segnaliamo l'intervista rilasciata a The Guardian, pubblicata ieri. Uno stralcio:
"I always object to the word Bollywood, I don't think it's fair to have that name. Because that industry has its own technique, its own way of making films that has nothing to do with aping Hollywood. It originates in Parsi theatre".
So what defines Indian cinema?
"Celebration, (we) celebrate everything and Indian cinema is an extension of that, so why did they lose their identity by calling it Bollywood?''.
