Speaking at the Brahmastra pre-release event in Hyderabad, Karan Johar said that instead of dividing Indian cinema into Bollywood and Tollywood, one should refer to it as the Indian film industry. KJo also thanked Jr NTR for being a part of the grand event as the chief guest. He said, “Thank you Jr NTR for honouring us with your presence and being our special-special chief guest. Your support means the world. We, in our own tiny way, are trying to reach every corner . Like SS Rajamouli sir said, this is Indian cinema. Let’s not call it anything else. We keep giving it a wood…Bollywood, Tollywood. We are not in the woods anymore, we are out of them. We are proudly part of Indian cinema. Each and every film will be now from Indian cinema.”
