The back-to-back success of films like Allu Arjun's Pushpa: The Rise , SS Rajamouli's RRR and Yash-starrer KGF Chapter 2 has triggered the North Vs South films debate in the country. The Hindi dubbed versions of these movies have contributed a major chunk to their smashing box office collection. On the other hand, the recent Bollywood flicks; some even featuring popular stars have failed to make a mark at the box office. At the launch event of the new trailer of Kangana Ranaut's upcoming film Dhaakad , the actress shared her opinion on this topic.

It starts with one of them casually saying, “Write what you know” — it may be Mark McKinney, slightly leaning back in his chair and staring at the ceiling, or it might be Bruce McCulloch, who’s wandering around the conference room, checking his phone as it charges and idly munching on a pastry. Whoever said it first, it’s definitely Kevin McDonald who quickly jumps in and, as if on cue, immediately chants, “Write what you know!” He says it again, at which point Dave Foley joins in as well. “Write what you know!” “Write what you know!” McKinney and McCulloch, both grinning, start singing along as well: “Write what you know! Write what you know!
