Amala Paul says alarming things about Telugu cinema.
Currently making waves are Amala Paul’s recent comments against the Telugu cinema business. The actress, who mostly performs in Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam films, spoke candidly about her decision to cease appearing in Tollywood productions. She added the Telugu film business is dominated by film families, and that the main reasons people watch Telugu movies are for the romance and glitz, which were stunning claims.
Amala Paul stated in a recent interview with The Times of India that the characters that were presented to her prevented her from doing more Telugu films. She stated: “I became aware of the family notion when I entered the Telugu film business. These family and their supporters heavily dominate the industry there. Additionally, the films they were producing at the time were considerably different. Every time, there would be two actresses, and we would be present for the romantic moments and musical numbers. I only made a small number of films there since they were so commercial and I couldn’t really connect with that sector at the time.”
Amala Paul made her Telugu cinema debut in the Naga Chaitanya-starring Bejawada, and she continued to dazzle viewers with performances in such movies as Janda Pai Kapiraju, VIP with Dhanush, Iddarammayilatho with Allu Arjun, Nayak with Ram Charan, and more.
Amala recently made headlines when it was announced that she had turned down Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan. According to Amala Paul, she turned down the offer because she “wasn’t in the mental position to do it.” Amala Paul emphasised that although she has always admired Mani Ratnam, she doesn’t regret not acting in one of his films—and she won’t—because certain things are simply right.
