It’s been a while now since Mahesh Babu’s comment, ‘Bollywood can’t afford me’ created controversy. But it seems like the world haven’t moved on pass it. Joining the bandwagon, Bollywood actor Dalip Tahil, who backed the superstar's statement, mentioned that the South industry is much more punctual and organised than its Hindi counterpart.
While sharing his opinion with a news channel he said, "In my humble opinion, when Mahesh Babu says Hindi movies cannot afford him, he is most likely referring to the work ethic, where I completely agree with him.. more strength to Mahesh Babu."
He elaborated about the differences between both the industries and how it would get difficult for him to work in an atmosphere where he is not in control.
"What I meant by work ethics, I still stand by it. When Mahesh Babu said 'Hindi films can't afford me', maybe partly he meant the remuneration, but it had a lot to do with (something else as well)... You must understand, Mahesh Babu is a huge star across the country, not just the Telugu film industry. He is a pan-India, megastar. You must understand when he comes to a place where he is not absolutely in control, and in complete understanding of the functioning of the project, it is going to be very difficult for him."
The veteran actor also praised the south Industry, and said, "From my experience of working in south Indian films, it is a far better-oiled machinery."
