Kolkata: He came to politics on the principle of time. But for him, movies come first. Actor and Trinamool (TMC) MP Dev (Dev Adhikari) cleared the controversy on ‘Prajapati’. He said that he became a god for cinema, not for politics (Projapoti Controversy). So always keep artistry ahead of politics (Tollywood).
He became a god for cinema, not for politics, said the actor
christmas And Prajapati released in theaters on Dev’s birthday. Mithun Chakraborty played the role of Dev’s father in the film. Once there was Trinamool. But now he is BJP. But political positions did not stand in the way of Dev and Mithun working together. Instead, they give a message of mutual courtesy in the field of art above politics.
But their film ‘Prajapati’ is the subject of controversy at the moment. Dev-Mithun’s film ‘Prajapati’ was not given a place in Bengali tradition. Khod Dev himself brought the matter to light. People from all walks of life protested against it. Because of Mithun’s presence, it is alleged that politics is working behind such behavior towards Prajapati and Nandane ‘Prajapati’ being a bratya.
In an exclusive interview with ABP Anand, Dev stated his position amid the controversy. Said, “Cinema first for me. Not for politics, cto take I will work with Mithun again if necessary.”

There are various theories about getting a picture show in Nandan. But I refuse to give importance to all that. In his words, “I have no regrets. Getting a show or not getting a show in Nandan is a different matter. The only thing to say is that the money that shows movies in Nandan, the atmosphere there, does not strain the pockets of the middle class. What happened, what could have happened, I don’t believe in that theory. I wonder what could have been.”
But Mithun, a resident of the opponent’s political camp, is it so risky to take pictures! Stopping midway, Dev said, “Even if a script comes to me where Mithun is needed, I will do a film with him again. For me, from the beginning to the end, the film is everything. I have never brought politics into the film, and I have never brought politics into the film. Two “It’s a different world to me. I’ve tried to balance the two worlds quite honestly. No one can say, I’ve ever tried to get a job with political influence or I’m telling someone for political color, you can’t work with me. No one.” If I think I need an artist, an actor, I will try my best, even fall on my feet. If the money is too much, I will say, I can’t pay, and I can’t even make a film without you. That’s the kind of person I am.”
Nandan did not get the show ‘Prajapati’ due to Mithun’s presence, allegations are being raised
While there were allegations that politics were at work behind Nandan not getting the ‘Butterfly’ show, state minister Firhad Hakim, however, dismissed the claims. He said, “The reason for not getting a show in Nandan is that there is a booking for showing the film in Nandan. Those who are associated with the respective film have to make the booking in advance. This booking is not in the hands of the Chief Minister. It may be for the film ‘Prajapati’.” The letter was not given. Someone else had given the letter earlier. So saying that Mithun Chakraborty is there, Prajapati didn’t get the show is not true. Because Dev is also in that film.” However, even though the state government cleared the complaint, the complaint could not be stopped. Earlier, Aneek Dutt’s ‘Aparajit’ also did not get a place in Nandan, despite Trinamool Youth Congress leader Saini Ghosh in that film, it did not show in Nandan. At that time, too, there was controversy.
