Ajay Devgn has won accolades for his choice of films, right from Phool Aur Kaante, Zakhm to The Legend of Bhagat Singh. Looking back, he is happy that he chose a “different” career path. He says, “My films like Omkara, Zakhm , etc. were much ahead of its times. I always preferred choosing such films. I am happy that more filmmakers and actors are associating with films like these.”

After Baadshaho, the actor will next be seen in a period film called Taanaaji: The Unsung Warrior. The actor says that he wants to go a step ahead of Bahubali. “But I am not looking to compete with Bahubali. We need to give good films to our audiences. Our films need to have emotions, drama and thrill in the right quantity.” 

 

Even his wife Kajol maintains that Ajay likes to do things differently. He explains, “We have to put our best foot forward, content and entertainment wise; only then will people step out of their homes to watch our movies If we do not make strong films, the space will be occupied by Hollywood films.”

He believes that this is where strong stories become the heroes today. The actor, who is mighty impressed with the young scriptwriters today, says, “They are emotionally well-versed. There are writers who can pen according to what our audiences want. In-depth writing is the need of the hour.”

 

The actor also has the Golmaal franchise in his kitty, which also stars Parineeti Chopra and Tabu. 

He says, “Both are talented actors. The film is funnier than the previous ones,” he signs off.
