Ashoke Pandit said, "It is regrettable that our entertainment industry is always ignored by all administrations," director Ashoke Pandit stated in response to this year's budget. We have not discussed how other businesses, such as the textile, soap, and healthcare industries, are discussed in budgets. Other businesses are recognised, discussed, disputed, and advantages are talked about, but no one thinks about our entertainment industry, no one thinks about how to save the industry, no one thinks about how to increase it."
He added, "I hope this budget benefits our industry, as we are pleased with it. We are the country's largest taxpayers. We performed a vital part in COVID-19 by amusing individuals while sitting in their homes, and we were responsible for people not becoming mentally sick."
