Ajay Devgn reflects on Phool aur Kante, Lamhe opening on same day
Ajay Devgn opened up on the clash between his film Phool aur Kante and Lamhe starring Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in a chat show
Talking about the same, the host of the chat show said: “Ajay, I’ve always wanted to ask you, as a film fan, I remember your film ‘Phool aur Kaante’ was releasing with the very celebrated film ‘Lamhe’, It was Yash Chora’s film after ‘Chandni’ and there was a lot of hype on the fact that it was a film coming and then there was a new actor coming in a film called ‘Phool aur Kante’. The music had done exceptionally well, today, we are generally more aware about box office, but at that time what was your feeling coming with a juggernaut film?”
Responding to the same, Ajay said: "When you are young, you don't think about all these things and as a newcomer I had no choice in deciding the date of the film, and my attitude at that point of time also when I started work: You know, you are carefree at that age, you are like hua toh hua, nahi hua toh kuch aur karenge kind of an attitude."
He further mentioned: "I remember, Anil ji met me and he said, very sweetly and honestly, what are you’ll doing yaar, tell your producer not to come, ‘Lamhe’ is such a big film, obviously such a big starcast, Yash ji. I said it's not in my hands. He was very sweet. But you never know what happens, what works, what does not work."
