The 51-year-old actor Madhuri Dixit believes the streaming giant Netfilx has disrupted the Indian film industry. The giant’s Indian content has been characterised as niche by the critics due to lack of mainstream features when compared to its rivals.
Dixit said, “I think stars will always be the stars but this is like a ground breaking thing where you disrupt the system and Netflix is doing that.” She was speaking at a panel discussion during the See What’s Next: Asia event in Singapore.
Madhuri added that her 1994 blockbuster “Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!” would have been a bigger hit if audiences had Netflix two decades ago. The actor will soon make her debut on Netflix with her Marathi production titled “15th August”.
Later, filmmaker Leena Yadav, whose “Rajma Chawal” will soon make its debut on the web platform, said the big stars of the Hindi film industry could soon be “seduced” to work with Netflix.
