Indian cinema shouldn’t try to imitate Hollywood: Asghar Farhadi

The Iranian filmmaker, whose film The Past was screened at the 15th Mumbai Film Festival, says Indian films shouldn’t lose their originality

Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, known for Oscar-winning film A Separation, Monday said that Indian cinema shouldn’t try to imitate Hollywood or European cinema, but continue catering to everybody.

“I think Indian cinema should not lose its originality by trying to imitate other film industries. It should continue making films and shouldn’t try to imitate Hollywood or European cinema because then we all will be making same kind of films, which we don’t want,” Farhadi said.

He was speaking at the screening of his film The Past at the 15th Mumbai Film Festival, which has been nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Foreign Language Film category. “Indian cinema should continue doing what it has been doing because I think it’s the only film industry in the world that caters to all class of the audiences,” he added.
