The true skill of a scriptwriter is seen when he prepares something that has an universal appeal. In terms of Indian cinema, his story and subject should be such that it can catch the attention of people across different parts of this nation. Given the diverse diaspora in our massive country, that is indeed a challenge.

Despite the odds, there are times when certain scripts find acceptance at many regions. One such film in discussion is Venkatadri Express’ Directed by Merlapaka Gandhi, the film starring Sundeep Kishan and Rakul Preet became a big hit. Now, reports are arriving from Karnataka that even the Sandalwood version has clicked.

Apparently, Venkatadri Express became Tirupathi Express in Kannada and this has Sumanth Shailendra with Kriti Kharbanda of Teen Maar and Ongole Gittha fame. The box office numbers are ringing strongly for this movie so it may not be a surprise if this ‘Express’ will have its journey in other languages too, is Bollywood listening?
