‘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.”

I would say that she is com­ing back with the right pro­ject. Peo­ple like to see her and Shah Rukh to­gether My daugh­ter tells me not to jump around and dance be­cause that is not how peo­ple want to see me
