4 (764 x 430)sHe has kept the audience on the edge of their seats with his action roles, made them laugh out loud in his comical avatar and even cry with his emotional characters. Actor Ajay Devgn looks back at his Bollywood career with contentment-having worked on his own terms and conditions.
Over the years, he diversified from being just an actor to also going behind the scenes as a director and producer. “Content” with how his journey has shaped up, Ajay said, “Whatever I am doing, I am doing it all on my terms and conditions, and that’s what I wanted to do.”Ajay’s filmography spans action, comedy, romance and drama, and starting with Phool Aur Kaante, he has been lauded for his work in Dilwale, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Company, Omkara and Yuva as well as the Golmaal and Singham franchises.
His next release is Raid, based on a true story about money laundering. About working in myriad genres, he said, “Everything is tough… Making people laugh is as tough as making people feel for you. So it is really not easy. As an actor, you never think about a genre.” In Raid, Ajay essays the role of an Income Tax officer hailing from Uttar Pradesh. The actor, whose own house was once raided in the 1990s, is confident the movie will make people sit up and think about people who are in the Income Tax Department. “They are so silent and nobody knows about them… Officers like these keep doing their job and we talk about other people, and people who become famous,” he said. He also said the audience will get to know about what transpires before and during a raid.
