Mumbai: Indian Superstar Shahrukh Khan said Hollywood could, someday, take over Bollywood if the latter doesn’t work on skills like the screenplay, marketing and use of technology.
Superstar Shahrukh Khan said,
“If we don’t hone up a few areas, especially script writing, screenplay, marketing, professionalism and technology, we will be taken over by Hollywood,”
Shah Rukh discussed the elements of Bollywood when contrasted with Hollywood amid a session with American performer Brad Pitt, who made a sudden visit to India to promote his Netflix film War Machine. In this film a satirical comedy wherein he plays Glen McMahon, a tough but over confident US General seeking victory in Afghanistan.
Shahrukh Khan added more,
“Language is becoming less and less of a barrier. There are more digital platforms and easy accessibility to content from all around the world. Hollywood has done more and we need to learn from it and adapt. There are films like Spider-Man and Fast and the Furious which did as well as any other action Hindi film. Language is no longer a barrier as Western films are getting dubbed too, the Indian industry has to change.”
Shah Rukh, who has won titles like King Khan, Badshah and King of Romance because of movies like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Veer-Zara and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, additionally brought up that achievement of universal movies in the local market demonstrates a move in the pattern.

Brad Pitt said that,
“Indian cinema has its own film language, its own stars and a place of its own. Staying relevant needs a little bit of luck but we also try to re-invent. We are constantly trying to look for something new and different and fortunately we have survived our mistakes to stay relevant”
