- In an interview, Takapa talked about Sikkimese film industry. He said,
The filmmakers have a certain level of support that has allowed them to flourish. And because of that they have been able to create films that have had a pan-India effect. It may not have as strong a reach as Bollywood but numbers that we are talking about are quite huge in terms of the region. Obviously, Sikkim would want more big-budget Bollywood projects to come and work there… Produce films. It’s great for the tourism and at the end of the day, we’re talking revenue. It’s always a plus point. This gives you some hope as you don’t have an inherent audience, which I mean in terms of the population. So you hope that it opens up to a larger number of people – the idea of the so-called world cinema.”
