How have you learnt which is being watched? If I speak about myself, I’m very relieved that I lastly have a spot the place folks can discover my movies. If I may also help it, I by no means need my movies to launch in theatres, as a result of folks don’t take the difficulty to return,” Makhija states boldly.

To elucidate his level, he recounts an incident: “When my movie Ajji launched, after three days, the theatres stopped giving us exhibits and cancelled.
