Ajay Devgn On a Roll with Back to Back Hits

Ajay Devgn On a Roll with Back to Back Hits

2010 is the best year for Ajay Devgn with back to back hits like, Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge , Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, Raajneeti and now Aakrosh. With Golmaal 3 around the corner, he seems to be interested in ending the year with a bang. By the way, there has also been an unforgettable high in his personal life, the birth of a baby boy.

Starting his innings with a bang in Phool aur Khante(1992), Ajay has been the only actor who has been consistently giving hits throughout his innings. He had even managed to win two National Awards for his performances in Zakhm and The Legend of Bhagat Singh.

Even actors from Akshay Kumar to SRK have had bad phase but this dark horse of Bollywood has been delivering steadily and without noise. But in the past few years, he has been elevated to the rank of a superstar and in 2010, he seems to have left everyone behind. Here is what one of the most versatile actors of our times has to say about his stupefying success.

On having back to back hits and happiness on the personal front
Absolutely! It feels good. I am happy about my films which have already released and the ones that are due, especially Aakrosh and Golmaal 3 . Yes, becoming a father the second time is a great feeling too.

On working with Priydarshan for the first time Yes, and I must say it’s one of his best works. It’s an action-thriller. I think, Priyadarshan is more remembered for his comedies though I personally feel he has made some good intense films like Virasat and Gardish . So seeing him tackle a serious issue like honour killings was good and, as I said, the film has turned out very well and is certainly one of his best works. The experience of working with him was fantastic.

About his character in Aakrosh
I play a CBI officer, Pratap Singh, who is given the task to solve a case of three missing Delhi University students in a village in Bihar. But then it’s not that simple and straight as it seems and as we uncover the case in the face of angry locals and a corrupt local police officer, we realize there is more than what meets the eye. The film deals with honour killings.

About his take on honor kills
It’s the same as you or any other educated person has. Who gives anyone a right to kill someone? It just can’t be encouraged. It just cannot and should not be encouraged. It can’t be a solution or punishment for two people in love.

On working with Akshaye Khanna
Yes, the last time we did a film together was Deewangee where my role was negative and his positive one. In this, however, he heads the CBI team and is in charge of the entire investigation. It’s good to work with him and it never felt that so much time had passed. Akshaye is very reserved, is not very media savvy just like me and likes to go into hiding after every film. But that’s the way he likes to function.

About his being possessive about his brothers and sisters in the family
Yes, I am protective like any other brother would be. But I am not possessive! I believe everyone is mature enough to make decisions and one can’t force people to do something against their wishes. There can be no valid reason to kill someone!

About Golmaal 3 and the many promos
Absolutely. It’s bigger, better and funnier and a perfect festival bonanza for the audience.

About the high expectations for Golmaal 3
Yes, making comedies is a difficult job, especially for the writers and as you said, meeting expectations is another thing. But then you try to make it all come together, put together a good fun script and make it entertaining and then hope it works. I hope the Golmaal brand becomes better and grows with every film.

On being one of the very few actors who’s done films in all the genres with high degree of success
People’s love and appreciation for sure and I guess, my acting skills, scripts and good directors. It definitely feels good to entertain audiences with different kind of films. As an actor, I strive to do justice to whatever film I choose to act in and when it is received and appreciated well, the feeling is good, of contentment and satisfaction. I feel fortunate to be loved by people in all kinds of films. My directors too have shown that trust in me so that’s one important reason.
