Experimenting With Many Genres In Movies, Ajay Devgan

Twenty years of Ajay Devgan in Hindi movie industry has been very smooth and he has been able to make a lot of people his fans. With a string of hits the previous year, Ajay Devgan has been looked up to as the most bankable actor in Bollywood. The fact has been enforced by the report that he has sold the distribution rights of upcoming movie Singham for over Rs 12 crore.

It should be noticed that Dabangg starring Salman Khan was sold for a somewhat lesser value. Ajay Devgan delivered a string of successive films the last year, including ‚Athithi Tum Kab Jaoge‘, ‚Once Upon a Time in Mumbai‘, ‚Raajneeti‘ and ‚Golmaal 3‘. With ‚Singham‘, Rohit Shetty and Devgan work together after ‚Golmaal 3‘.

Born Vishal Devgan, debuting in the movie industry was not too difficult a job for Ajay. His father Veeru Devgan, was a stunt master and his younger brother, Anil, is a filmmaker on his own right. His entry was marked by Filmfare Best Newcomer Award for Phool aur Kaante (1991). Through the decade, he starred in several commercially successful films like ‚Ek Hi Rasta‘, ‚Ishq‘, ‚Pyar to Hona Hi Tha‘ and the popular, ‚Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam‘. He was bestowed with National Awards two times – the 1st one for Zakhm (1991) and the second one for Legend of Bhagat Singh (2003). His wedding with Kajol was in 1999.

Of late, his surname has been changed and has a letter short. This was to improve his luck in his film career. Is it an absolute coincidence that the success rate of his films has increased previous year, fetching him the reputation of a bankable star?.

Ajay is referred to as an actor who tries out various types of roles and never wishes to be called as a typecast, said Ramesh Sippy, who now owns the rights for Singham. Ajay Devgan is consistent in case of his films and has been giving out commercially successful films. He has also been successful experimenting with funny movies like ‚Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji‘ ‚Athithi Tum Kab Jaoge‘ the and ‚Golmaal‘ series, which testifies for his reliability as an actor, Sippy added.

With his increasing success, Ajay has started pursuing other interests. Recent reports state that he plans to put his money in a solar power project in Gujarat. In association with Roha Group from Mumbai, he has invested almost Rs 400 crore in the 25mw solar project.
