Amitabh Bachchan is busy with the promotions of his upcoming film 102 Not Out. It also stars Rishi Kapoor in the lead role.

In an interview with Indian Express, Big B got candid about Indian cinema, Hollywood film industry, and movies and shows on the digital platform.

Amitabh said, “Speed of communication and the alternatives that people have for entertainment has become so good. Earlier, it was only cinema. Today you have TV, computer, mobile and with communication coming in so rapid, you are exposed to stuff that’s coming from every corner of the world. So, they are used to seeing something and in some cases in perhaps greater quality than ours and they want the same from us. So, we have to keep re-inventing.”

Amitabh Bachchan said that Hollywood has destroyed the local industry wherever it has gone. “This I was told in 1993 when I was on a casual visit to New York and I met some studios who were wanting to meet me and they told me, ‘You better get your house in order because India is the new frontier and Americans are coming.’ And everywhere Hollywood has gone, it has destroyed the local industry whether it’s England, Italy or Germany, they just come and take over. They have the money and the expertise. They have the quality and quantity. We are fighting against them,” said Big B.

He added, “I still believe that emotionally we are stronger but we will not able to match them in technology. But I have to say that the younger generation of our film industry are absolutely aware of what’s happening in the rest of the world. And they are spending a lot of money and energy to make their films equally big.”

Amitabh Bachchan also said that people should not patronise Hollywood films when they release. 

The actor said, “So, whenever their films come out, please don’t patronize them because we are fighting against an ogre of Hollywood from overtaking us and destroying our industry. I spent some time with these young filmmakers and they think so big and massive. They don’t have any doubts about how to do things. They tell me, ‘We will do this and that,’ and I ask them, ‘But how will you manage?’. They assure me they know how to do it.”
