Mumbai: Actor Ajay Devgan’s upcoming movie Shivaay is all set to hit the screens on October 28th. The actor took a stand on behalf of the film fraternity and said that they have people from various casts, creed and religion and still they manage to work under one roof and never face any conflicts.
While talking to the media Devgan said “Nobody can deny one good thing about the industry is we never had any issues with religion. We have Hindus, Muslims, Parsis, Christians everybody working under one roof. We celebrate every festival together. We never had any problem in our industry. If films can influence the society then it should begin from here”.
His movie “Shivaay” will clash at the box office with Karan Johar’s movie “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” which is into controversy about featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
Ajay further when questioned about whether it is nationalism or fright behind such statements he said: “Both. When it comes to nationalism, as I said, I stand by the country. When it comes to politics, an industry men gets a little scared. He gets scared because if today you say anything against a group, your film will be stopped, something will happen”.
Ajay along with his wife Kajol attended a conversation at “Manthan” Aaj Tak to talk about the recent politics scenario regarding Pakistani actors and Bollywood.
