;On Monday, April 29, 2019, your team sent notice to us at 11 a.m. EDT that they had taken control of the festival (which they have no legal right to do) and at 11:15 a.m. EDT advised that they had cancelled the festival (which they had no legal right to do),; Lang wrote in the letter. ;This same team had also already notified the press without any advance notice to me or my team. While we were on a call together as a group at 12:00 EDT, the media had already begun reporting that Woodstock was cancelled. I then learned that Amplifi illegally swept approximately $17 million from the festival bank account leaving the festival in peril. These actions confirmed my worst concerns about partnering with your company. These actions are neither a legal nor honorable way to do business.; Lang goes on to claim in the letter that Dentsu is now promising "indemnification " to musicians who back out of their previously announced gigs at Woodstock 50.

Talking about his shift from TV to Bollywood, he said, When I was doing television, the digital medium wasn t around and TV was becoming increasingly difficult. That s why films happened. There was no dream of getting into Bollywood as such. My journey has been a progression. I always accept or reject projects on the basis of content. As an actor, I get involved and try to do the best I can in every project I work on. And for me, it s the day s job that has to be satisfying, and not a project as a whole. If you base your satisfaction on how people like it or what the box office collection of a project is like, then it s difficult to survive here. The actor had said in an interview before that he finds TV exhausting. Commenting on that further, he told the daily, TV actors are always insecure and they fear getting replaced. Since there s a huge influx of actors, nobody voices their concerns or opinions. So, you keep working for long hours, which is absolutely against the labour laws. It s a bitter sweet thing. When you become popular as the lead of a show, you are expected to shoot for 12 hours every single day You don t have a choice.
