Ajay Devgn: I was raided in the 90s


It (trying new genres) has got nothing to do with stereotype. The ’90s were dominated by icons like Ajay, the three Khans – Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir – and Akshay Kumar who continue to be on the top. Directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, the film is set against the backdrop of the 1980s and features Ajay as an Income Tax officer hailing from Uttar Pradesh. I didn’t encounter it because I was shooting out of town. Everybody goes through a phase when films don’t do well but someone analysed it for me that in my whole career, except for a year or two, there has never been a year when I didn’t have a hit. “Maybe if there are two or three flops, there has always been a hit. I’ve tried most of the genres and they all have worked.”
“Otherwise an actor starts struggling. I did Golmaal now Raid, then a rom-com and then Dhamaal. “I’ve been raided once in the ’90s. The actor has been on a golden run with his back-to-back releases Baadshaho and Golmaal Again doing well at the box office. While the film might have taken creative liberties on reel, decades ago, the actor recalled how he was at the receiving end of a real-life raid. 2018-03-04T17:05:38+00:00″>

In a media interaction, when asked if his generation would be the last of the superstars to enjoy matchless adulation, Ajay said, “I think we were very lucky because when we had started work, the kind of fan following we got at that point of time, they were very loyal fans. “I’ve been very lucky in that sense. They will decide if the film is good or not, it won’t matter who is in the film,” he added. “I like rotating my genres, doing different things. I think I’ve been lucky. The film, scheduled to release on March 16, is inspired by real incidents and Ajay says the story – written by Pink fame Ritesh Shah – has been fictionalised to give it a cinematic treatment. They go by the content, film to film. It went on for a day or two and in the end, they got nothing.”
