Abhay Deol on AVENGERS: Superhero franchises are here to make money!
Abhay Deol, made a comeback after 2 years to the big screen with NANU KI JAANU. He was superbly excited for the film and many of them even liked the film, with AVENGERS : INFINITY WAR releasing today.
During the media interaction we asked Abhay if he will be watching the biggest superhero film to which he said, “Superhero films bore me. I mean, they have great special effects and all but they are all franchises to make money. They are predictable. We are living in a society where there is war around us, there are superheroes in the form of everyday people who make great sacrifices. We try to be superheroes and ignore real issues.”
Further more when asked him why Hindi films are inspired from Hollywood films to which he said, “ We always copied Hollywood. Now at least it's less than before. But even though now we can't outrightly copy, we borrow the style from them. In this you lack your own originality and that's unfortunate. It would be nice to be innovative of our own. But we are service oriented, we are not encouraged to be innovative. Till the time we don't feel confident in our own skin, we are going to copy their style particularly of white people because that's what we aspire to be. We don't see African cinema and inspire from them.”
