Akshay Kumar, who had supported Deva that was not given enough screens as it clashed with Salman Khan's Tiger Zinda Hai, said Marathi cinema has been producing better content than Bollywood. The Marathi film was reportedly not able to get prime time slots at theatres. However, around 295 screens were given to the film after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) wrote to the multiplex and theatre owners.

At a recent event, Kumar addressed the issue as he said, "I had heard that there was some problem [referring to number of screens allotted to Deva], but things have been solved now. I think in every theatre, one or two screens are being given to Deva. According to me, the kind of content that Marathi cinema has is much better than Hindi cinema. I have seen their films, I have also remade two Marathi films."
