Bappi Lahiri to sing in Made In China

Bollywood News

The All India Film Producers Council has asked the government of India to ban the dubbing of foreign films in Hindi. "Of late American films are being dubbed into Hindi...(they) are spoiling India's culture, reaching as they do, a wider Indian audience," says Pahlaj Nihalani, president of the Council. "They also corner the Hindi film market, with distribution rights for each territory sold for as cheap as Rs 18 lakh. Even the price of the locally-made low-budget Hindi films is far higher."

Talking to a trade publication, Nihalani clarified that the Indian producers were not against the import of foreign films, but against the dubbing of them into Hindi capturing the Indian market through the backdoor and taking away the mass audience for indigenous productions. "Films like Jurassic Park, Titanic and the James Bond movies directly compete with Indian films, which cannot afford to match the technical standards of American films...the local audience prefer to see the dubbed versions, which are technically far superior" declares the veteran producer.
