Bollywood has always produced great superstars and one of them is Ajay Devgn. Ever since he came to the entertainment industry, he always looked a perspicacious guy who doesn’t waste time taking befitting decisions. He’s not only good at heart, but also knows his duties towards his nation. At present, he’s not only in acting but also a great producer and director.
In one of a kind decision taken by him on pretext of COEAI (Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India), to donate the first day collections of his upcoming film ‘Shivaay, he has decided to contribute his day first earnings to the Uri martyr’s fund. The great actor has therefore pledged to donate a part of his directorial venture’s first day collections to the families of those ended their life serving the nation.
On recent spat over the Uri attack and the demand from a plethora of organisations not to showcase Pakistani artists into our films, Ajay Devgn has supported the sentiments. He was seen talking about the idea of fundraising for the families who paid the highest penalty while serving the nation. He said, I wholeheartedly support the very purpose of raising the funds for our great martyrs. He further announced to match the donations decided by the respective members of Exhibitors Association and Cinema Owners.
Ajay Devgn didn’t think twice before supporting the decision to contribute
While elaborating the discussions taken by them, they (Exhibitors Association and cinema owners) said as per the request made to our members to donate their share of earnings they get, in response to the films they tend to screen on October 28. This is what finally came out and would be a part of our tribute to all those brave soldiers who paid the highest cost while serving to the nation at “Uri”.
The request was circulated to all cinema associations, cinema owners and multiplex owners who plan to screen films this Diwali. We all need your support in this for such a great cause. They said, after we approached Ajay Devgn (producer of Shivaay) to kindly contribute the share and he instantly agreed.
On the same pretext, another Bollywood star ‘Akshay Kumar’ also contributed Rs. 80 lacs to the families of Uri martyrs.
