Actor Ajay Devgn is set for his multistarrer film Baadshaho. Talking about working with contemporaries, he says there was never any insecurity in his generation but that does not seem to be the case with the young stars today.
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty reportedly said his ‘Ram Lakhan’ remake fell through, because the male actors were insecure about working together. When Ajay was asked about it, he said.
“I don’t know why that’s happening. You have to ask them (young actors not doing two-hero film). But I think they are taking their career and work too seriously. You can stand in a frame with someone and shine. Why fear it? When you shine with somebody, you reach greater heights.”
Ajay says the major difference between actors today and his generation is that they never took their work as seriously as the young stars do.
“We never took our work seriously at all. Honestly speaking, for the first 15-20 years of our life, we didn’t. I was very lucky that I never had to struggle. But I did work hard. As the industry kept evolving, the audience kept changing, our mindset (towards work) also kept changing.”
Ajay Devgn also said that he has not really faced a bad phase. “There was a point when I was doing too much work. So, I cut down on my work. That’s how the whole process started and it became a system with everybody, doing one film at a time.”
“I was pushed into acting any which way. My first film started when I didn’t want to do it in a way. It was a superhit and there was no looking back after that, no struggle. When I look back… In 26 years, I think there must have been one or two years where I didn’t have a hit, otherwise if one didn’t work, the other did. There was never a low phase.”
Baadshaho is scheduled to release this Friday.
