Actress Shabana Azmi Friday attended a special session at FICCI Frames 2014 and praised the films for their drama and presentation, but said it's time to reduce the length of movies to compete in bigger market.

While talking about Indian films being accepted internationally, Shabana said: "If we are talking about Indian films being accepted internationally, then time has come where the world has shrunk to a global village. We need our culture to be understood in our own paradigm. The mainstream Bollywood has caught the attention of many people, but the only thing we need to change is reduce the length of the films."

She further added: "The element, drama, and presentation we have is unique in the industry and especially the songs are very unique. We have to make space for the world to accept us the way we are, rather than mould ourselves to other people."

Anupam Kher too was present at the session. He also praised the changes in filmdom.

Anupam said: "As far as Indian films are concerned, I feel cinema has evolved. There is more discipline and things are much more professional now.

"Indian cinema is made for Indian audiences and it's not easy to do difficult or over-the-top scenes and yet to convince the 1 billion population. I think Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan can do what Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt can do, but I doubt whether they (Hollywood actors) can do something like 'Tujhe dekha to ye jaana sanam'."
