Intelligent film critics welcome to give Himmatwala one star-Ajay Devgn
New Delhi, March 6 — Ajay Devgn expects the worst from critics for his upcoming film Himmatwala, an official remake of the 80s blockbuster hit of the same name. No, that is not to say he’s doubtful of the success of the film, but he feels that recognition from the audience and success at the box office is more important than awards and great reviews.
“We want zero awards. And, the ‘intelligent’ film critics can give us just one star. Intelligent film critics wo log hote hai jo maa ke pet se khwahish le kar aate hain, ki main film banauga, jab bana nahi paate to critics ban jaate hain (those who want to become filmmakers but fail, become critics). Theek hai unka kaam hai criticise karna … karne do par hum picture audience ke liye bana rahein hain, un chaar intelligent logon ke liye nahi,” says Devgn, who is shooting in Bhopal for Prakash Jha’s next titled Satyagraha.
Talking about awards, he adds, “They have become reality TV shows which are meant to gain TRPs. Jo perform karega, usko award milega (those who perform will get an award).”
