Has Bollywood wrecked our cinema sensibilities?

Four-time national award winning Kannada film maker Girish Kasaravalli quoted in The Hindu:

“Had our film-makers followed the Bengali format instead of the Bollywood one, Indian cinema would have attained a different status in world cinema…. Forget about the opportunity to view Iranian, Australian, French or Swedish films. In India, people of one State are unaware of the happenings in the film industry in the neighbouring States. They refuse to look beyond the format of Hindi cinema”
