Stop appeasing just Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada viewers. What wrong did Assamese, Bengali, Marathi, Bhojpuri etc. viewers did to these studios? Don't say they gotta make money and profit. That is utter nonsense. People all over India buys subscription to OTTs and buys tickets to watch movies on theatre. On top of that Telugu movies are acquired for 100s of crores. But you won't find one Assamese movie on Hotstar.
Over the years national TV channels just gave space to South Indian movies. I have never seen any dubbed Bengali or a Bhojpuri movie. Even a very popular Marathi movie Sairat which has multiple remakes didn't got aired nor did got dubbed in Hindi. Meanwhile you got scene by scene remakes of movies like Kabir Singh, Arjun Reddy, Aditya Verma etc. across channels.

Content is made available in respective regional language based on business viability it holds....same goes for launching a regional channel. There have been attempts made in the past to dub content in Bhojpuri, Punjabi etc. but maybe due to business / financial limitations same cannot be replicated on a big scale like it happens for Hindi, Tamil, Telugu languages etc.
There r still lots of movies, serials, sports, infotainment, kids content which r dubbed/made available in Bengali, Marathi etc. but as i have said compared to Dubbed Content available in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, etc. then that ratio difference would b large.
There r select Marathi, Bangla, Punjabi films dubbed in Hindi which r aired on hindi movie channels and available on OTT platforms . I agree that good subject films available in Assamese, Bhojpuri or other languages should also be dubbed in Hindi and shown on Hindi movie channels as well as available on OTT platforms.
Overall each hindi or regional language movie channel should also give adequate slots to its language from native language but equally give appropriate space to regional films dubbed in Hindi. A situation should not arise where hindi movie channels start ignoring bollywood films and primarily air just dubbed south indian movies.
Channels / Hollywood Studios should also make efforts to dub more content / films / shows in regional languages
