“Dad, I heard people saying that my movie is dull, corny, waste of time and all,” said Fahad to his father, on his debut film.
“So?!” replied father.
“This is what you are saying! What about hard work of four months each & every member of crew, production, editors, actors, directors have put. Can’t they appreciate our efforts? They don’t even know sometimes we worked for 18 hours a day. But in two hours they were saying it’s a waste of time.”
“Son, you need to accept this hard truth that no one cares what you are doing. How much efforts you had put, how many hours you spent tirelessly to make a single piece, no one really cares. The world only focuses on how it will be benefited from it. They watch your movie for entertainment & if they think you were unable to deliver it, they are going to say this. So get used to it & focus on doing your work. The crazy fact is the world only cares about how it is getting benefited from your endeavor, not how much you endeavored.”
