On February 14th, a van laden with explosives had rammed into a CRPF convoy which led to 40 CRPF soldiers passing away. The responsibility was taken by Jaish e Muhammad, a militant group believed to be backed by Pakistan. In the wake of the attacks, film star and producer Ajay Devgn tweeted that his team had decided not to release Total Dhamaal in Pakistan.
Following the attacks, there was a severe backlash against Kashmiris in some parts of the country and Ajay Devgn was questioned about the same.
Speaking to PTI, Ajay Devgn said, “See the whole country is not like this. There is a certain section of people who want to create problems. I think that is not fair but it spreads on social media and it feels like the whole world is dirty and the whole country is like this.”
The Total Dhamaal actor went on to say, “I think we should be responsible enough to react to things in a certain way and to accept what is right and not accept what is wrong. So, social media has its own flaws. And it is not like the courts will decide; people have started to become judges of their own, which is not right,” he adds.
The team of Total Dhamaal also had announced to donate 50 lac INR to the grieving families of the victims. Total Dhamaal is releasing today worldwide and stars Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Ritesh Deshmukh.
