Archana : Hi Ajay, This is Archana. Being a south Indian , did you face any discrimination in the industry, although you were born and raised in North(If i am not wrong).

Astonish : Hi Ajay,I m posting from Tokyo Japan [Images], Here in Japan, Indian movies means movies of Rajnikanth [Images]. They are not aware of Bollywood movies. The Japanese people are crazy about music and personalities. If Bollywood can make a stage show, bringing people like Hritik, Fardeen, Yourself and rest all , U can capture a very lucarative market. Its really a fact, Think about and if possible discuss with your colleagues
Ajay Devgan : Sorry, I dont do stage shows
