Lets burn the woods, says Yash on Bollywood vs South debate

Kannada actor Yash, who became a pan Indian sensation after starring in two phenomenally successful 'KGF' movies, doesn't like to believe in the categorisation of cinema. While speaking recently at the India Today Conclave, the actor stated that all the actors should be treated equally with respect regardless of the industry they are associated with.

Yash was asked to comment on the statement that Bollywood needs him more than he needs it. He replied, “I don’t believe in Bollywood, Sandalwood, I don’t believe in these ‘woods’ at all. Let’s burn the woods. The point here is, we fought for our respect, please treat us like every actor is treated in this country. Just because things are working for us, I can’t start doing the same thing for others.

Yash further added, "If I start treating rest of the people as, ‘We have surpassed all your things and today South is going up and Bollywood is finishing,’ all the bullsh*t I don’t believe in. The point is, let’s just do good work. The audience doesn’t care whether it is from Bollywood, Karnataka or any other state."

Although the success of KGF franchise has made him one of the most popular stars of the country today, Yash is still quite humble about it. He says, "I am nobody, every Friday you have to prove yourself. Just because I have done KGF I can’t think that tomorrow I am the biggest star or I am beyond Bollywood–there is no ‘wood’ in the first place–but if someone does better work, if someone does something good here, then definitely people will accept it all over the country and tables will tur."
