‘It’s not Bol­ly­wood!’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Shar­man Joshi (right) says that peo­ple should stop re­fer­ring to the Hindi film in­dus­try as Bol­ly­wood.

“I don’t know what’s it with peo­ple, why they want to call it Bol­ly­wood. It’s In­dian Film In­dus­try. So, we should do away with Tol­ly­wood, Bol­ly­wood, etc. We are just In­dian Film In­dus­try. And when we do need to re­fer to a prtic­u­lar in­dus­try, maybe we should call it Hindi Film In­dus­try, or Tamil film in­dus­try, and so on,” says the 3 Id­iots ac­tor.

In fact, he says that’s the only thing that he’d like to change about the in­dus­try. “If I could change just one thing about the in­dus­try, I’ll change the way we re­fer to it,” says Joshi, who is cur­rently busy with his stage plays and an up­com­ing erotic-thriller.

“I’m glad that I’ve got back to the stage. There has been a lot of learn­ing and un-lear­ing, it gives me a lot of thrill to per­form live. As for films, I am do­ing an erotic-thriller which has been writ­ten by Vikram Bhatt. It is go­ing to be dif­fer­ent from what I have done re­cently,” says Joshi.
