Ajay, Kajol run with the nation
November 9 was not the usual day for actors Ajay Devgan and Kajol. It was a completely different morning for them as instead of packing for the shooting, they were with the huge mass of different caste and creed and different walks of life on the street of Delhi to run for Delhi Half-marathon. They flagged off Senior Citizens' Run in New Delhi on chilly Sunday morning and covered an extra mile. Apart from them, Kareena and Saif, composer AR Rahman and Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit, boxer Vijender Singh and corporate biggie Rajan Mittal came forward to support the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon.
Ajay said that the event means a lot to him and it was something he would never have turned down for anything. "It’s a great cause and it was a great feeling. The fact that it involved those from society who’ve given us so much and are at the stage of life where they need our support, makes it all the more important. Kajol feels the same way and that is why we both were here in Delhi for it."
He further commented on sport, "Sports of all kinds create great harmony and unite people. I mean, look at this marathon – everyone from different walks of life is here. And yes, it is mentally and physically very healthy. I feel bad for kids who don’t get a chance to enjoy the world of outdoor games because they are inundated with too much technology in their homes. Technology is good, but nothing can beat outdoor games. I’m going to make sure my daughter is exposed to them."
