Paisa Vasool To Disaster: Ajay Devgn’s Bholaa Opens To Mixed Reviews; 21 Tweets To Read To Decide If You Should Watch It
Check out some of the reactions below:
Ajay Devgn On His Inspiration Behind Becoming Director
Devgn told ETimes in a recent interview, “I have inherited it from my father (action director Veeru Devgan). I have learnt most of it from him. He used technology at a time when it wasn’t available. He took it to a point where people were amazed at how he did a particular scene at that particular point. Now that I have the support of technology, I can take it forward and create something where even people who are exposed to technology will turn around and wonder how this was created.”
Ajay Devgn On Being Authentic & Not Copying Shots From Hollywood
He further addressed how he refrains from copying Hollywood, “I ensure that I don’t copy a shot from any Hollywood film. In most of our movies, you see the action sequences and know that this is something you have seen in a Bond film, or a Mission Impossible. So, when you create something different, there is no reference point, and it becomes tougher to execute,”
Ajay Devgn On Not Copying Kaithi Shot By Shot
While ensuring the remake is different from the original, Ajay said, “When you see the film, you will realize that we have only picked up the story idea and adapted it. When you make remakes shot-to-shot, it’s a different thing (the results are different). But when you adapt it the way you want in terms of its characterization, drama, emotions, and treatment, then it’s different. You start following your own path, which can lead you anywhere.”
