Veteran actor Dharmendra, who is returning to the big screen after three years with Yamla Pagla Deewana, says unlike older times, today everyone has to boast about oneself to get success.

'Promotions are a part of our profession nowadays. In earlier times we were not required to do all this. Nowadays you have to blow your own trumpet,'  said Dharmendra.

'My heart keeps asking why are you doing what you never used to do, but my mind tells me that this is a trend so you have to do it. Today, the scenario is that the more you are seen, the more you are valued. So I'm also following that path,' he added.

The film is slated for a January 14 release.
