In the year 2020, when there was an epidemic of Corona, the collection of films’ earnings was said to be only 930 crores.
This was not the era of theater but the time of OTT was going on, then Tollywood films had earned 1230 crores. This means the South was ahead. Similarly, in the year 2021, Bollywood was at 600 crores, while Tollywood’s collection was said to be 1900 crores. In the year 2022, only “The Kashmir Files” is being named in Bollywood’s account while South films (“Pushpa – Part 1”, “RRR” and “KGF – Chapter 2” broke all records of earning Are.

Now the debate is going on that who is ahead and who is behind. So must say that the market for South films is definitely hot. South ie Tollywood films, whether dubbed in Hindi or remade, have increased the trend of the audience watching Bollywood films. Today Bollywood stars Salman, and Akshay is able to give hit films by doing all remake films.
Bollywood is moving away from its originality. Bollywood has neither a subject nor a great presentation. While Tollywood films are strengthening their hold on the consumers (viewers) of Hindi films despite being ‘dubbed’ content due to their innovative themes and action-packed making. Bollywood audiences are going gaga over Tollywood movies. RRR has won the Oscars for the first time ever for an Indian film, not least for the song ‘Naatu Naatu’. Naacho Naacho, the Hindi version of ‘Naatu Naatu’, has even beaten the controversial track ‘Pathan’ which was picturized by Deepika Padukone. The same Deepika Padukone has presented the victory of RRR on the Oscar stage. The North-South debate has really come to an end!
