‘I never had issues with SRK’
Actor Ajay Devgn is awaiting the release of his upcoming film with Tabu. However, he says he’s happy that his wife, actor Kajol, is making her big screen comeback after five years. “She decided that she wanted to quit, and she has decided to come back. I would say that she is coming back with the right project. Shah Rukh (Khan; actor) is also in the film. People like to see them together,” he says.
For a long time, there has been buzz that Devgn does not get along with SRK, even though Kajol and Khan are great friends. However, a few weeks ago, a photograph of Devgn and Khan at dinner — the two had caught up in Bulgaria as they were shooting there — surfaced online. “I don’t know how that Bulagria dinner started trending. It was a very normal dinner. It is the media that claims we have issues; we have never had issues. (When we met) we were laughing over various things,” he says.
His last release, Action Jackson (2014), however, didn’t do very well. Ask him about that, and Ajay says that he was “prepared for it”. He adds that even his daughter, Nysa (12), wasn’t happy to see him in that film. “Many people, including my daughter, told me that I should stick to doing what people want me to do, and not jump around and dance because that is not how people see me. She said that I should not do these stupid things,” says the 46-year-old, adding, “Prabhudheva (director) tried his best to make me dance, but I don’t think people want to see me doing that.”
