Ac­tor Ajay Devgn (above) is one of those celebri­ties who don’t en­joy too much at­ten­tion. And like him, his 12-year- old daugh­ter Nysa is also a pri­vate per­son. “She doesn’t like all the at­ten­tion she gets as a star kid. She is on a lot of so­cial media plat­forms but all her ac­counts are pri­vate. And it’s not some­thing we have asked her to do, it is her own de­ci­sion. And we like to keep them away (from the lime­light). She is quite like me,” says Ajay, who also has a four-year-old son Yug, with wife, ac­tor Ka­jol. In fact the ac­tor says that be­ing low-key is a fam­ily trait. “I don’t like so­cial­is­ing too much ei­ther. I fin­ish my work, sit back and let the work speak for me,” says Ajay, who is en­joy­ing the suc­cess of his latest re­lease.

Although Nysa doesn’t like the glam­orous part of showbiz, she is in­ter­ested in films, and does give feed­back to her fa­ther about his work. “Yes, she some­times tells me that you were good in this film or you weren’t good in that,” he shares. “She says you should do the roles you are com­fort­able do­ing. Don’t do char­ac­ters where you aren’t be­ing your­self. Be who you are and do roles that your au­di­ence want you to do. You don’t need to do roles that need you to dance around trees — that’s some­thing she tells me,” says the 46-year-old.

As for Ka­jol, who will be seen on the big screen af­ter a gap of al­most five years, he says, “I am very happy for her. I am look­ing for­ward to her film.” Asked if they dis­cuss work at home, he says, “We don’t dis­cuss films or work, but we do watch films to­gether,” he says.

She is on a lot of so­cial media plat­forms but all her ac­counts are pri­vate. And it’s not some­thing we have asked her to do, it is her own de­ci­sion. She is quite like me
