(right) has ex­per­i­mented with se­ri­ous, comic as well as ac­tion roles so far, and says that in­tense roles ex­cite him the most. In fact, that’s the rea­son he chose to do his up­com­ing pro­ject.

“I did in­tense roles in films like Zakhm (1988), Dee­wangee (2002) and Com­pany (2002), and my per­for­mance was liked by peo­ple. I wanted to do more such roles but I wasn’t get­ting any ex­cit­ing of­fers of that type,” Devgn said at the pro­mo­tional event. The 46-yearold ac­tor added that when sign­ing a film, “the film and role have to be ex­tra­or­di­nary or else then things don’t work”.

In his up­com­ing film, Devgn plays a fam­ily man who is pit­ted against ac­tor Tabu, and had a great time while shoot­ing. “On the first day, I had a bit of dif­fi­culty as I had to look like a sim­ple man but then things got bet­ter,” he said. The ac­tor is also happy with how the ac­tion se­quences have been ex­e­cuted in this film. “You’ll get to see in­tel­li­gent ac­tion and not the usual stuff. It was ex­cit­ing for me to do it,” says Devgn, who was last seen in Ac­tion Jack­son (2014), along­side ac­tor Son­akshi Sinha.

Since his next is a re­make of a suc­cess­ful Malay­alam film, com­par­isons are bound to hap­pen. But the ac­tor is con­fi­dent and says: “Our film is dif­fer­ent. The per­for­mances are dif­fer­ent.” A mur­der mys­tery set in Goa, the movie also fea­tures ac­tor Shriya Saran.
