New Delhi, Oct 12 - Southern star Prithviraj Sukumaran, who makes his Bollywood debut with Sachin Kundalkar's Aiyyaa, says both Southern and Hindi film industries are on road to become pan-Indian cinema.

I think what you should decipher from the phenomenon of South Indian films being remade in Bollywood and Bollywood films being remade in the South with actors migrating to and fro, is that aesthetically and creatively we are stepping towards being pan-India cinema, Prithviraj told IANS.

Southern films like Vikramarkudu, Singam, Pokiri and Maryada Ramanna are being remade in Hindi as Rowdy Rathore, Singham, Wanted and Son of Sardaar respectively.

The actor says that it's nice to see such change.

Rather than making Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu, ideally we should be in a space where we make Indian cinema and where the entire country can connect to a film and I think that is where we are headed towards, he said.

The 29-year-old is known for his work down South in movies like Indian Rupee, Vaasthavam and Anwar.

Prithviraj says of late he has observed people picking similarities between the two industries.

A lot of people are making observation that a lot of Telugu movies are being made like Bollywood these days and when I come to Mumbai, I hear people say that Bollywood is becoming like South Indian films these days, he said.

It's great to know that the so called linguistic barriers a film has is becoming more and more ambiguous these days, he said.

Aiyyaa also stars Rani Mukerji and the film released Friday.
