Ajay Devgn has carved a niche for himself as one of the finest performers in the Hindi film industry. The actor is loved for his acting prowess, as well as his on-screen comic-timing, that gives his peers a run for their money. But that’s not it. While Ajay’s acting is par excellence, his know-how of boxing no lightweight matter either.
It is a lesser-known fact that the Shivaay actor is quite skilled when it comes to boxing. In fact, according to reports, Ajay left a professional trainer gobsmacked with his knowledge and cognisance of the sport, during the filming of his upcoming release De De Pyaar De. Ajay’s character in the film is that of a boxing enthusiast and for a particular scene, the actor was getting trained in London. He did not only pick up new skills but also left the trainer surprised with all of his existing knowledge and techniques the star has of the sport.
A unit member shared, “We were not aware that Ajay sir has a good understanding of boxing already, in fact, even the trainer in London was amazed and surprised by his knowledge of boxing.”
De De Pyaar De explores the relationship between an older man, played by Ajay and a younger woman, played by Rakul Preet.
De De Pyaar De marks the first on-screen collaboration of Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet, and also stars Tabu. Helmed by Akiv Ali, the film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Luv Ranjan, and Ankur Garg, and is slated to release in cinemas next Friday, 17th May.
