Talking about the film, Ajay Devgn (during the trailer launch of the film) said in a statement, “I don’t know about the benchmark or perception that this movie might create, but the real struggle with the film was that the character is very heroic, but real at the same time. We tried to keep it real even with the punchlines. It doesn’t feel you’re watching a movie. The challenge was to follow the character as realistically as possible.” ALSO READ: 5 Times Birthday Boy Ajay Devgn And Wife Kajol Gave Us Couple Goals!
