Actor Rana Daggubati said on Saturday that Indian projects can be global if the creators focus on “local” stories that are unique to the country.
Daggubati, the star of blockbusters such as the “Baahubali” franchise and the political thriller “Nene Raju Nene Mantri”, said that even if the country were to have a worldwide hit show such as Netflix’s “Money Heist”, it could work if it had local elements. woven into it.
“India is a land of stories with the greatest mythologies ever written. And they were written on a scale that embarrasses the ‘Game of Thrones” in this sense.
“Because it’s our culture that we represent. So if it’s ‘Money Heist’, let’s rob things the way Indians would … It’s still going to be our culture and our ethics that get the story into places “he said.
Daggubati was part of a panel discussion to celebrate two years since the relaunch of the SonyLIV streaming platform. He was joined by filmmakers Hansal Mehta, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Nikkhil Advani, Applause Entertainment CEO Sameer Nair and Danish Khan, Sony LIV Commercial Director, Sony Entertainment Television & StudioNext.
“What brings us to the global audience? Stories that are extremely local, things that happen in different parts of the country that are new to the world and unique to us,” he added.
The 37-year-old actor is producing several performances for SonyLIV, including “Case Files of Hemanth Rao”, which is in pre-production.
Daggubati, who recently completed the filming of his crime series “Rana Naidu” for Netflix, said he was now trying to understand the process of long storytelling.
“We’ve been a film company for about 50 years. We still have three hours of storytelling in our heads. I just finished finishing another show for another network. We still understand what long writing means because we haven’t experienced a premium moment on television,” he added.
