Ajay Devgn, who is awaiting the release of his highly anticipated film Runway34, has thanked Akshay Kumar for giving a shout on Twitter amid his busy shooting schedule. Akshay recently kick-started the shoot for Sudha Kongara's untitled film with Radhika Madan. Amid the shooting, he shared a tweet on his Twitter that read, "LANDING THIS FRIDAY, #RUNWAY34". Thanking Sooryavanshi actor, Ajay tweeted, "Akshay, the team of Runway 34 & I really appreciate your taking time out to give us a special mention. Especially since you've just started a new film yourself. My best wishes to you too - Ajay". Check out below:
Ajay Devgn's Runway 34, co-starring Rakul Preet Singh and Amitabh Bachchan in pivotal roles, is slated to hit the theatres this week on April 29, 2022. Helmed by Ajay Devgn, the film is based on a true incident.
Talking about Akshay Kumar, he is in the news ever since he featured in a tobacco advertisement. Following the uproar, the actor issued an apology on his Instagram handle and assured the fans that he would contribute his entire fee towards a worthy cause. He wrote, "I am sorry. I would like to apologies to you, all my fans and well-wishers. Your reaction over the past few days has deeply affected me. While I have not and will not endorse tobacco, I respect the outpouring of your feelings in light of my association with Vimal Elaichi. With all humility, I step back. I have decided to contribute the entire endorsement fee towards a worthy cause. The brand might continue airing the ads till the legal duration of the contract that is binding upon me, but I promise to be extremely mindful in making my future choices. In return I shall forever continue to ask for your love and wishes."
Soon after, Ajay Devgn also issued a clarification during recent promotions for his upcoming film Runway 34. He said, "It is a personal choice. When you do something, you also see how harmful it would be. Somethings are harmful, some are not. I was doing elaichi. What I feel is more than advertisements, if certain things are so wrong, then they should not be sold."
Meanwhile, on the work front, Ajay Devgn has several films in his kitty--Maidaan, Thank God and Drishyam 2.
