Ajay Devgn has stated that filmmaking has become more difficult in Bollywood over the 30 years he has been a part of the industry. The actor also noted that there is more pressure on actors and creators these days due to increased feedback. The actor is currently awaiting the release of his directorial debut, Runway 34, in which he also stars. Rakul Preet Singh and Amitabh Bachchan also appear in the film.
Ajay was asked if it is easier to make films now than it was in the 1990s in an interview with ETimes during the promotion of Runway 34. The actor’s response was, “It’s tougher because things have changed under the new generation. We now have corporations backing movies and the budgets of projects are going up. You have to be really cautious that you don’t end up wasting money and time is money. Earlier, filmmaking was a lot of fun. We were a little carefree. There was no pressure of whether the film will work or not. There were no promotions and there was no social media. So you didn’t realize what all was happening. “
As Rakul Preet SinghAjay’s co-star, interjected, “not everyone was a critic,” Ajay agreed and added, “Yes, you had a handful of critics. But now, everyone’s a critic. That ‘pressure’ has become too much. Today, we have to concentrate more on our work. The industry has become quality conscious because of the exposure that our audience has had with international cinema. These are good influences, but yes, there’s a lot of pressure. “
The true story of the Jet Airways Doha-Kochi flight in 2015 is said to have inspired the film. The film will be released on April 29.
