Khans don't overshadow me, I am a star, Ajay Devgn


It seems that the renewed camaraderie between Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan has stirred the Bollywood industry.  The new equation between the three Khans has the potential to dominate the tinsel town of Bollywood.

Therefore the media could not help but ask the noted actor Ajay Devgn in one of his interviews about how he felt on the patch up between Shahrukh and Salman, during Arpita’s wedding? Ajay said, “They have always been friends. Yes, there were small differences, but that never made them enemies. I am happy that they are openly showing their affection for each other now. It’s such a good thing. Salman, Shah Rukh, Akshay, Aamir and I have been in the industry for 25 years now. We have always been comfortable with each other. So, whenever there’s a rift, it should be sorted out.”

When asked whether he felt overshadowed by the three Khans? Ajay replied that, “This perception has been created by the media. Technically, I became a star with my first film, Phool Aur Kaante (1991), and after that, I didn’t have to look back. I am a star, and have always been.”

Ajay Devgn started his career as an action hero and then afterwards has effortlessly portrayed comic, serious and romantic roles. He even acted in parallel cinemas and did justice to his roles. In his career span of more than two decades he has received numerous awards and accolades. He received national awards for his performances in the films ‘Zakhm’ (1998) and ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ (2002). The actor feels that he is not able to market himself and wants others to judge him by his works.

Ajay was asked why he shies away from marketing himself unlike other stars? Ajay replied as, “I don’t want to market myself. I am not someone who creates perceptions; I let people judge me for my work. People know about my successful films and performances. I don’t need to scream from the rooftops about my work.”

Speaking about his latest upcoming film, the actor stated that, “It is a typical Prabhudheva film, which I am sure people will enjoy. It has a nice story, emotions, great humor, fantastic action and lovely songs. Also, I don’t think anybody else can present their actors the way Prabhudheva does. The film has got all the factors to provide complete entertainment.”
