Ajay Devgn on his facing box office failures
During his appearance on a chat show, Ajay said that hard work and struggle are something that the industry demands equally from everyone irrespective of their background. Talking about the same, the host asked him, "Do you think you have seen the harshness of what the industry can be to failure?”
Ajay replied, “We have seen it, we have seen people getting ruined and I have seen people coming and struggling here and some of them I know, say we give ourselves one year, if something happens, we’ll do something, otherwise wouldn't know what to do and go back. And there is this slight hope.”
The actor further mentioned, “Every six months, you go to an office, you want work and they say hum batate hai aapko, toh usme ek saal aur nikal jata hai, toh aise karte karte, 30-40 saal nikal jaate hai, chahe woh aap film industry ke ho ya na ho, struggle sabke liye barabar hai aur hard work toh utna karna hi padta, everybody has to do that yaar.”
Ajay Devgn on changes he has seen in film industry
Ajay also talked about the changes the industry has gone through in the past years. “I have a chain of cinemas, so my feeling is very very different. Any film which works, I am the most happy, but most of the people wait for that Friday that the numbers are not good, but they don't realize how it is harming us and less films are being made, less investors are there. We are all struggling, " said the actor.
Ajay went on to say that today's technicians compete with Hollywood without that kind of funding. The actor added that it's easy to call a movie good or bad without understanding the complexities involved.
