During the chat session of the event, in his speech, he mentioned about the non-availability of theatres despite a huge interest towards entertainment in the interiors of India. The actor said that the growth for Indian films had been much smaller compared to the growth of television in India.
The ratio of theatres to the audience area was still very small, they had very few theatres compared to the audience that they could garner. In the interiors of India, there were not many screens for people to go and he thought there was a huge market there for entrepreneurs to get into making low-cost theatres.

He said he took this opportunity to thank a lot of people, actors, actresses, and audiences, for allowing him to continue unencumbered with any idea that he had, they had given him the ability to just go ahead and gave it a shot, try and go wrong if he might, and more often than not they had allowed him to go wrong.

Additionally, he thanked the people involved in the businesses who turned out to be handy in providing a direction to his imaginative capacity on the silver screen, he further added, business is about earning millions, finishing targets and projections.
Though he fully respected the managerial capacity of business, but he liked to think of it as the people who worked with him and had allowed his imaginarily capacity. They had allowed him to imagine and they had managed that imagination. So, when they had become a game changer he could not take it upon themselves, there were loads of people involved and the audience as well around the world who accepted doing the stuff they did and thought it was entertaining.
