  1. One-Original Script and secondly-respect for writers & Good pay to them. The growth of Hindi film industry could have been far greater if these 2 were taken seriously. Great Actors may have evolved too. For example Rishiji who surprised everyone in Agneepath. No one knew before this, how versatile an actor he is. This ignoring of good writers has indirectlyalso dimished hindi film industry quality & largeness too. Where are movies like Mughal-e-azam or Navrang or Sholay etc. Today’s films are like you watch & after that you forget except for Rockstar, Barfi, Pan Singh tomar etc. If one watches foreign films, one wonders how did they get this idea.The reason is they encourage great writing. Hopefully Hindi film industry opens doors for good writers.
