Kamal's objection

One of those who resent - and rightfully too - of the Mumbai and the Tamil film industry being called Bollywood and Kollywood respectively, is Kamal Hassan. "Hollywood is a place in the US, and the film industry being based there, one can understand it being called by that name. But why should we take that name for our industry!" The actor also elaborated on the Oscars, saying that the awards for promoting the American film industry and not world cinema. "I value our national awards more," says the actor. Well said!

Agree that Bollywood and Kollywood sound stupid enuf... But with regards to the awards, I think they are doing a great job by involving all the countries and all the movies... If only we watch these kinda movies we could appreciate their quality...
