Although they are superstars in the South, they failed in Bollywood
South India now dominates the subcontinent’s cinema market. Films from the Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam industry are storming the box office here, as well as critical acclaim. Not only Dhalwood from Bangladesh, Tollywood from India and even Bollywood have been remaking or duplicating their movies for years.
Some of the main stars of Southern cinema have also worked in Bollywood. But did not see success. Tamil-Telugu superstars, whose movies are celebrated when they come out, have fallen in love with Hindi movies! Let’s get to know some of these stars…
Suriya is one of the stars of Tamil cinema. Whether it’s a spicy commercial or a story-driven movie, it hits the mark. Suriya hit the shelves with the movies ‘Surarai Pattru’ or ‘Joy Bhim’. Apart from that, the actor only played one scene in the movie “Vikram” this year. But this star came to Hindi cinema and saw the face of the flop! In 2010, Suriya starred in Ram Gopal Varma’s “Rakht Charit 2”. The film was a total failure. As a result, he has not been seen in a lead role in any Bollywood film.
This Telugu superstar rose to international fame with ‘Baahubali’. Then her call came to Bollywood. His first Hindi film “Saaho” was released in 2019. Budgeted at Rs 350 crore, the film did not do well at the box office.
Telugu superstar Ram Charan made his Bollywood debut in 2013. Priyanka Chopra acted opposite him in the movie named ‘Zanjeer’. Dakshin Matano Ram’s magic didn’t work in Bollywood. As a result, the film was registered as a failure.
He is the new star of the list. He gave hit movies like ‘Geet Govindam’, ‘Arjun Reddy’ in South. But when it comes to Bollywood, the situation is completely different. He made his Hindi debut with the very famous “Ligar” a few days ago. But the film flopped at the box office. Due to a weak screenplay and acting, “Liger” also received harsh reviews.
