Country comes before money, says Ajay Devgn.

Ajay Devgn has become the first Bollywood A-lister to speak openly in support of Pakistani artists getting banned in Bollywood. In an interview with CNN-News18, he said, “How do you expect me, when there is a constant exchange of bullets, to sit down and isolate them? “

On being asked whether he would work with the Pakistani actors, Devgn said, “Not at the moment. I heard some people say that talks are the only way to continue. I want to see you getting into a fight with somebody after he gives you a tight slap on your face and you say ‘let’s have a talk right now.’”

He made an indirect jibe at his fellow actors who are supporting the idea of Pakistani actors working in Indian films. “It’s saddening. I don’t know what the reasons are. I don’t even believe that they are human beings are scared at this time.”

He said, “Country comes before money. What will you do with money if your country sinks?”

He added, “You can’t clap with one hand. You keep talking to people but then they come and kill you. How can you still continue a dialogue?”
