Ajay Devgn opens up on audiences having changed over the years
Citing the examples of films such as ‘Zakhm’ and those made by Prakash Jha, actor Ajay Devgn said that content-driven cinema is not a new phenomenon in Bollywood. He also believes the only difference is that such films have started doing well commercially.
In an interview with PTI, Ajay Devgn said, “We did ‘Zakhm’ long back, Prakash Jha has been making such films also for a very long time. Every time they say a change has come in terms of content, I wonder why to talk about it. Such cinema has started working after multiplexes have come.”
Ajay firmly believes that actors need to upgrade themselves through their work as the taste and preferences of the audience are changing.
“They are changing and you have to change with time. Today the way my daughter thinks and I think is completely different. I try to grasp what she is thinking. I try to learn what is the mindset and thought-process of people today. Emotions are the same but the way we emote and they emote is different, they react to things differently. And we need to learn that for cinema and for ourselves,” he added.
The 49-year-old star also noted that the audience is only interested to see good cinema right now. “They need to be engaged, entertained. And Entertainment just doesn’t mean laughing. Like ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ engages you, you feel high. It works, it doesn’t have any song or dance. It connects with the audience. The connect should be there with the audience,” he said.
Currently, Ajay Devgn is busy promoting his upcoming film ‘Total Dhamaal’. He will be also next seen in the films like ‘De De Pyaar De’ ‘Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior’, ‘Chanakya’ with Neeraj Pandey, a biopic on the legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim and Luv Ranjan’s film with Ranbir Kapoor.
