Bollywood Not Going Anywhere, Viewers Going Online: Producer Chanda Patel
Producer Chanda Patel is gearing up for Bollywood debut through I’m Not Porn Star: Nazar Sambhal Ke. Allaying fears about the Indian film industry’s future, filmmaker Chanda Patel avers Bollywood is here to stay and the change is the transition of viewers who are now consuming content online.
“Audiences don’t die. They shift. People are consuming content on the net. Bollywood is not going anywhere, but personally I believe piracy should go. With digital coming in, there is a certain amount of realignment that is happening,” said Chanda Patel.
She was asked to comment on the future of Bollywood in the age of digital media.
Quizzed on her career and her experiences as a woman in the industry, Chanda said: “We should never believe it’s a man’s world. The moment you think about that, you put yourself back.”
