Earlier, while talking about the validity of remakes in an era of pan-India movies, Ajay said in an interview with The Times of India, "Remakes are not a new phenomenon. They have been made since the 50s-60s. Questioning their relevance in the time of pan-India films is valid. But to say remakes don't work or will not work is invalid."

On the work front

He further added, "When a movie is remade with an equally favourite big star from their own region, the actor's faithful audience or fan base will flock to see the remake. Hollywood remakes so many films with a different set of actors after a gap of a few years. People see both versions. The debate is not whether the film is a remake or not, but whether the film is a good one or not."

Meanwhile, on the work front, after 'Drishyam 2' Ajay will be seen in his next directorial 'Bholaa', in an upcoming period film titled 'Maidaan' and in director Neeraj Pandey's next untitled thriller.
