Ajay Devgn: 'I want to change big name monopoly in Bollywood'

By
Ajay Devgn has claimed he filed a complaint against Yash Raj Films (YRF) for the good of the film industry.

The actor accused the company of asking cinema owners to prioritise Jab Tak Hai Jaan over Son of Sardaar on Diwali.

He told The Times of India: "Whatever happens to Son Of Sardaar as a result of this doesn't really matter anymore. I am fighting the practice; I am not fighting a battle only till Diwali.

"I will fight the practice and perhaps, after six months, the industry will have reason to thank me. There is a lot of support from the industry; many people face these issues but can't muster the fight."

Devgn added that rules have to be put in place to stop bigger names dominating multiplexes.


"There's the tendency to arm-twist - it's not just in cinema, it's in every industry," he said. "But what's the law there for, then? To curb and control such things. I have been in the industry for 21 years, and have never been part of any controversy. Why would a person like me do it? Only when he's pushed to the wall.

"I am feeling the pinch because I am the producer also. It's not the actor who's fighting. It's me, the producer, fighting the producer."

The Competition Commission of India rejected the petition, stating that YRF is competing fairly.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan star Shah Rukh Khan has said that he will "pray" for Son of Sardaar's box office success.
