Regional cinema has lately been gaining popularity in India and audiences across the country are opening their minds to movies from other parts of the country. The success of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is a great example of a regional movie being accepted by the masses. Actor Radhika Apte, who has worked in regional films in seven languages, feels the regional cinema is evolving like never before.
“Film-making is a team effort; it’s not a one-man show. Right from the script, direction and production design to the actors — everything needs to be top class to succeed with the audience,” she says.
