The near exclusion of Bollywood from the National Awards has miffed some Bollywood denizens but jury head JP Dutta is unfazed. “Why are we looking at Indian cinema as Bollywood and regional cinema? There’s just one cinema — Indian cinema. It’s a shame that filmmakers in Mumbai equate Bollywood with Indian cinema. They need to open their eyes and look around,” he said.
