    Default Priyanka defends Bollywood cinema & India at Berlinale press meet

    After the DON 2 press show, many among the 'non' Indian media were left wondering if the film was actually a Bollywood film. The film's team of Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, and Ritesh Sidhwani had to do a lot of explaining about it during their press conference here. Though they refused to accept that the film was a deliberate attempt to get away from the Bollywood mould to gain international acceptability, and insisted that it was developed 'organically', there were no takers to this argument. Even the German co-producer of the film Mathias Schwerbrock did not seem to agree with them and spoke about the film being a fusion of Hollywood and Bollywood elements.


    It was Priyanka Chopra, the film's leading lady, who finally decided to defend the traditional Bollywood cinema and Indian way of life. She said that songs and dances that are termed as 'Bollywood elements' are part of Indian socio-cultural life that is full of music and dances. That is why most of Bollywood films turn out to be 'musicals'. She also added that she loves doing songs and dances and the 'so called' item numbers and keeps wondering why Farhan did not let her do that in DON 2.
