Smriti Irani while conversing with Karan Johar spoke about the power of entertainment in India. Speaking about regional cinema she said, “ We don’t really talk about the the capacity of our regional language films. How many countries can say that I have a Marathi box office hit like Sairat or Prosenjit doing films that cut across India or we have had a legend like Sridevi who we have paid tribute who did films in 5 languages and was a superstar not only in Delhi, Mumbai but the entire nation. This is what we need to celebrate. The more the expanse of content, the more the opportunities for local languages and local talent to come to the forefront. The beauty of our industry is that we are everywhere”.
“Single Window clearance is tremendous for the industry.” Siddharth Roy Kapur concluded.
Also present was Huma Qureshi, Chef Vikas Khanna, Amit Khanna, Prasoon Joshi, Suraj Barjatya, Ramesh Sippy among others.
