He recalled the time when South films were premiered on TV and their dubbed versions gained immense popularity. He said these films were often made fun of, especially in the Northern belt.

Yash Recalls When Bollywood Makers Made Fun Of South Films; He Clarifies, “They Were Like ‘Udd Raha Hai Sab'”
On the India today conclave, this is what Yash said, “10 years ago, dubbed films became very popular here (North India). But, initially they all started watching with different opinions. People used to make fun of South films. They were like ‘yeh kya action hai, udd raha hai sab’ (what is this action? everything is flying!)” He further continued about how this affected the selling price of the film, adding, “That’s how it started and eventually they got hooked on to that and they started understanding that art form. The problem with that was our films were sold for a bare minimum price, people used to do bad quality dubbing and it used to be presented in a bad way with funny names.”
Yash further shared, “People started becoming familiar with our dubbed films. It was long pending. Credit goes to SS Rajamouli sir. If you have to break a rock, continuous effort is needed. Baahubali gave that push. On the other hand, KGF was done with a different intention. What KGF was that it was not done to intimidate, but to inspire. People have now started noticing South films.”
You might be aware that South films are being appreciated by the audience. On the other hand Bollywood films are lagging behind in terms of entertainment and box office collection.
