Ajay Devgan – the conservative personality of bollywood.
Ajay Devgan is one of the decent actors of bollywood who had created a conservative image for himself over the years. He had started as an action hero in Phool aur Kante, opposite Madhu, and attracted the attention of viewers from the film itself. He used to involve himself in difficult stunts which created added attraction in the films.
When he acted in romantic films like Pyar to hona hi tha, opposite Kajol, (his wife), his less spoken, expressive performance again made a big impression. The song in the film “pyar to hona hi tha” was very big hit. He also did well in the film Dil Kya Kare. While acting in action films and romantic films he contributed in comedy films like Ishq, opposite Kajol, where all the actors and actresses, including Amir Khan and Juhi Chawla, did funny things including destroying the break of a car, taking the disguise of ghost, etc. The song “ishq hua, kaise hua”, sung by Udit Narayan impressed the musiclovers.
He also did well as an honest police officer in the film Gangajal. The film was based on the corruption and evil practices that were rampant in the state of Bihar at one point of time, where it was almost impossible for honest law enforcers to work in the state. The film was successful and Ajay Devgan’s performance was well appreciated by the audience.
He also did well in the film Omkara. The film had glimpses of the Shakespearean play of Othello, but was created with the backdrop of rural areas of northern India, specially Bihar. His performance was as impressive as the performance of Saif Ali Khan and Vivek Oberoi in the same film. He also made notable contribution in horror films like Kaal.
By nature he does not speak too much, and has a reserve character, but always had raised his voice against the evil practices that place in society. Even as a military officer in the film Major Saab, he was impressive. Big B also did well in the same film. He did cut his hair short for performing in that film.
Even when he was married to Aishwariya Rai in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, he never received any compassion from his wife, but he supported her knowing that she loved Salman Khan. Recently he appeared in Saregamapa Little Champs program in a TV Channel, where Sonu Nigam had requested him to make quality action films in future. The viewers also expect even better performance from him in future.
