Hollywood outsources our talent which we don’t respect: Manoj Bajpayee

Also, there are less cinemas in India. “In India, we don’t have that much patience when it comes to animation. “If we look at the trend in Hollywood these days, they are focusing a lot on larger-than-life films and animation. However, Indians are not giving respect to them. The existing cinemas are all captured by mainstream films as producers only want money,” he added. That much patience is not there in Indian producers. Producers want to make money in hurry. Our animation studios are mainly working for Hollywood. By: IANS | New Delhi |

Manoj Bajpayee inaugurated Smile International Film Festival for Children & Youth (SIFFCY). “Somehow, the distribution network of India is not working properly… And this situation has been there for a long time. Manoj, who has done films like Satya, Shool, Pinjar, Gangs of Wasseypur and Aligarh, says Indian film producers are more concerned about getting money and less about talent and content in films. “In our industry, they (producers) don’t take you because of your talent, they take you because of the business that your last film has done,” Manoj said. But to make a good animation film, you need three to four years. Producers there believe in making more children films as they feel that with a child, his parents will also go to see a film,” Manoj said here on Monday at the second edition of Smile International Film Festival for Children and Youth (SIFFCY). Hollywood outsources our talent, but we are not using it and respecting it,” he added. National Award-winning actor Manoj Bajpayee believes that Hollywood is outsourcing a lot of talent from India to make films.
