Mausam har hafte badalta hai… conviction har hafte marta hai! Box office hai bhaiya, Instagram reel nahi… 30 second ki trending mein reh jaaoge wahin ke wahin!” (If you want a big scale, then create this. Action is working. Make action flicks..If a love story works, then make romantic movie .If a chick flick becomes a hit, then make that… weather changes every week… conviction dies every week..It’s the box office, not Instagram reels… you’ll stay in the 30-second trend there.)
