She had also stated that the idea of Hindi film industry being India’s most superior film industry is ‘wrong.’ “Best of dubbed regional films don’t get pan India relase but dubbed Hollywood films get mainstream relase it’s alarming. Reason is the atrocious quality of most Hindi films and their monopoly over theatre screens also media created aspirational imagine for Hollywood films,” she wrote.
Jallikattu is directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery. It is based on a short story written by Hareesh titled Maoist. The film which stars Antony Varghese, Chemban Vinod Jose, Sabumon Abdusamad and Santhy Balachandran is chosen from 27 entries across different languages.
