Why is our benchmark reaching the Oscars?
The aim of Indian movies must be to entertain their audiences with good content, rather than constantly trying to vie for the Academy Awards. We are far away from the world standard. The world cannot understand us. The Oscars need to understand us, we don’t have to try to make it to the Oscars. I just believe that our films should be damn good for us.
Sometimes we only choose a difficult path, because we seem to think that to attain important things we need to choose a difficult path. We think it’s important to punish ourselves. But why? Why don’t we choose an easy path? What’s wrong with that, especially when we’re not ready to face that difficult path?
