Barriers in Indian film industry are disappearing: Farhan Akhtar

The actor-filmmaker was speaking at the Hindi trailer launch of the Yash-starrer KGF: Chapter 1, which is being presented by him and Excel Entertainment's Ritesh Sidhwani

Filmmaker and actor Farhan Akhtar is gearing up for the release of K.G.F: Chapter 1, which he is presenting in association with Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment.

With Indian film industry producing films in so many languages, there are questions whether the industry has reached a point where the language a story is told in is not important as the story itself. "I think barriers are coming down every single day and the world is becoming a smaller place. We are enjoying work from cultures and languages which we weren't familiar with many years ago," says Farhan.

"In digital revolution, we are consuming content without bothering about whether it's subtitled or dubbed. Filmmaking eventually is about storytelling. I feel the story of KGF is very strong and it's visually very exciting. Ritesh (Sidhwani) and I are the presenters of this film, and we are very honoured to be part of it and present it to the Hindi-speaking audience," he adds.

K.G.F: Chapter 1 is an upcoming Kannada-language action-period drama set in the Kolar gold fields. It is the first instalment in the two-part series, followed by K.G.F: Chapter 2. The film stars Yash and Srinidhi Shetty in the lead roles.
