We have all grown up watching some or the other South Indian movie, haven’t we? They have a different charm to them that feels refreshing after a consistent dose of the same old Bollywood content. Especially after the massive success of Bahubali, all those who dared to diminish the potential of the South Indian film industry were shut.
