Regarding the absence of togetherness in Bollywood, Nikkhil Advani said that even if Vidhu Vinod Chopra does anything rebellious, the industry will still say “paagal hai.”

The popular actor Nikkhil Advani, who is now in the news for his next movie “Vedaa,” which stars John Abraham and Sharvari, spoke candidly about the division in the Hindi film business.

Nikkhil Advani said in an interview with Film Companion that, unlike their counterparts in the South, individuals in Bollywood are always preoccupied with competing with one another rather than cooperating to create a strong sense of brotherhood.

Advani highlighted how different the present business climate is from his youth and the work of individuals like Yash Chopra and Yash Johar in terms of cooperation and friendship. He called for unity among those in business, pointing out that we live in a competitive world where people are more concerned with outdoing one another than with celebrating group accomplishments.

In order to promote a more cooperative and encouraging environment, the director emphasised the need for industry experts to come together and reach an agreement. He continued by saying that while the industry had reached consensus on a number of issues, including a restriction on marketing and the prohibition on media net (paid articles), someone always managed to flout the regulations.
Advani continued by stating that there is no consensus about the distribution methodology or windows (from theatre to OTT). Everybody is looking out for themselves.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra will do something, maybe even rebel, and everyone will exclaim, “Wow,” before responding, “Paagal hai.”
Advani complimented the South Indian film industry’s workings, saying that apart from producing films that resonate with audiences, they have figured out when and how best to distribute them.
In the meantime, Tamannah Bhatia, Abhishek Banerjee, and Sharvari Wagh play key parts in Nikkhil’s action thriller. “Vedaa,” which was written by Aseem Arora, will open in theatres on July 12 of this year.
