Godha, the Tovino Thomas starring sports drama, is all set to hit the theatres soon. In a recent interview given to a popular daily, lead actor Tovino reacted to the comparisons between Godha and the Bollywood movies Dangal and Sultan.
The actor, who expressed his displeasure over the comparisons, stated that it is unfair to compare the movies just because they revolve around the same theme, wrestling. Tovino also confirmed that Godha is not inspired from Dangal or Sultan.
He points out that Malayalam industry always comes up with the films, which have the capability to beat Bollywood in all aspects including the quality, performances, and craft. Tovino also sarcastically stated that Mollywood is not running out of ideas, to copy films from other languages.
The actor feels that there is no point in comparing the Malayalam movies which are made in low budgets, with the Bollywood biggies, which are made with enormous budgets. Tovino also added that such comparisons disheartened the Godha team members.
