Gujarati actress Deeksha Joshi is happy to see the growth of Gujarati cinema.
"Even though the content being produced was amazing, the regional cinemas were less appreciated a few years ago.
Comparatively, today the regional cinema is directly competing with the Hindi film industry, " said Deeksha, who recently received the best actress award for her film "Dhunki".
"Gujarati cinema and most importantly every regional cinema has always faced economic difficulties.
To give out a good product, you need finance, and many investors were sceptical about investing their money here.
Today, things have changed, even Gujarati films are in the race of National awards.
