If Indian filmmakers want to take that big leap in the international market, they should experiment with popular global genres like action, drama and adventure, says filmmaker Ashutosh Gowarikar.

"Our genre is song and dance, it is music, it is love stories and that are actually, if you look at the rules, just five percent (of the total). What rules is action, drama, and adventure - they are the most popular global genre," the 48-year-old said Wednesday at the 14th Mumbai Film Festival's Open Forum.

Gowariker believes the language of a film also makes a difference.

"If we can have these genres in the English language, which has a global reach, then we will be able to take those strides. But if we focus only on personal films, musicals, then it's going to be difficult. It will be taken as novelty, but we will not be able to make that leap," he said.

Gowariker states that there are filmmakers in the country who want to make films without songs and dance and they should be given a chance to do it.

"There are two kinds of filmmakers right now in the country. One is the filmmaker who has stories for the Indian audience.

"There is another category of filmmakers who want to tell stories in which they don't want to have songs and dance, they want to make two-and-a-half hour films, 90 minute to 100 or 120 minute films. The target audience they are looking for is an international audience because they know that these stories are not going to appeal to the Indian audience. So those filmmakers should be allowed to make their films for the global audience," he added.

Gowariker's last directorial was "Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey" in 2010. He is currently working on a script.
