As controversies surrounding big-budgeted films are becoming a trend in Bollywood, actor Ajay Devgn feels that unknown entities create controversies to become famous.

“In most cases where a person has filed a case against a particular film you find that you have never heard about that person before. He has created that controversy and he becomes famous,” Devgn told PTI when asked about the trend of controversies in the Hindi film industry.

“Controversies also happen because some people want to create controversies. But some must be having genuine issues,” the actor who plays a supercop in ‘Singham Returns’ said.

The film had also ran into a small controversy when a right-wing Hindu organisation Hindu Janajagruti Samiti had asked the Censor Board of Film Certification to ban the film stating that it depicts Hindu saints in a bad light. “That is now sorted out as there is nothing controversial in the film,” the actor said.

He also put the onus on the media saying, “It is the media’s job to understand it and ignore it and become a responsible media”.
