Soon, in fact this Friday, we will finally get to see Kajol and Ajay Devgan together on the silver screen again. U, Me Aur Hum will bring the two back together after 7 years and Ajay said it was wonderful working with her as director and co-star in the romantic film.
Ajay said, “Working with her is a delight. When a writer writes his book, he uses words to express himself and when a director makes a film, actors like her help convey the message rightly.”
Adding, “Very few actresses can perform like her. Doesn’t every director want to work with Kajol?”
He said that he is nothing like the character he portrays, “ “No, there are no similarities. For instance, in the film the character falls in love at first sight but nothing like this has ever happened to me in real life. However, I believe in what the character believes in.”
So when will his next project as director be? “It (U, Me Aur Hum) all started with a thought that gradually took shape. Only when a second thought comes along will I roll out my next film.”
Regarding hiring only Kajol for some future project, “Taking her in my first film doesn’t mean that I would only work with her. Casting depends on who suits the role most, and for this character she fitted the bill.”
Talking about U, Me Aur Hum Ajay said: “I have not tried to make a pseudo intellectual film, instead a commercial one. U, Me Aur Hum is about love, life and relationships. The aim is that people must come out of the theatre with a smile and feel good.”
On a side note, recently there was a screening held by Ravi Shankar Prasad, member of Parliment of U Me Aur Hum for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani. Along with Mr Advani’s wife, Ajay Devgan, Kajol, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Sushma Swaraj Karan Khanna, Sumeet Raghvan and Divya Dutta were all in attendance.
A source said, “Member of Parliament Ravi Shankar Prasad arranged a special screening of the film Saturday in New Delhi for Advani, who gave it a seven-minute standing ovation while the credits were being shown.”
Mr Advani, a former film critic said of the film, “The film touched my heart.”
We know we will be there at one of the first shows of U, Me Aur Hum, so check back to read BollySpice’s review of this exciting film!
