As well as being a star of Bollywood, Ajay Devgan is also the proud papa of daughter Nysa and recently she put her foot down. She felt he was away to much and made him cancel all his engagements to take some time off.
Ajay explained, “I had been shooting non-stop for U Me Aur Hum. Then after the promotion and press for my film, I left for Goa for Golmaal. That didn’t go down well with my daughter.”
So, she made him take a break. “I had no choice in the matter. It was my daughter Nysa’s command. And she’s the only woman in my life who can make me dance around her little finger. Now that she’s all of five, her demands are far more vocal.”
He added, “And you know what? I actually enjoy her bullying. I loved spending time with her.”
With both parents in the industry sometimes Nysa has to deal with one or the other being gone. Ajay was asked, “But isn’t there trouble ahead, what with Kajol agreeing to finally say yes to another feature film and that too, to be shot far away from home in the US?” Seeming to confirm something many a fan has been dying to know, he replied, “You mean Karan Johar’s film? No that won’t be a problem. I will try to spend as much time with Nysa as possible. But otherwise my parents are as good as us for her. She believes she has two sets of parents. So leaving her at home is not a problem.”
Ajay says he is happy with Kajol going in front of the camera again, “She’s an extremely talented artiste and we all look forward to her films. I’m very happy that she’s working again. She should and must do exactly what makes her happy.”
The two recently starred together in his directorial debut, U Me Aur Hum and Ajay says he is happy with the box office of the film, “I could blame the IPL for the film’s performance. But that would just be an excuse. U Me Aur Hum was never designed as a blockbuster. It dealt with a serious issue and we got the audience that we wanted. It touched people’s hearts. My happiest moment was when the other day I got to know a call centre in Mumbai has put up ‘U Me Aur Hum’ as their slogan.”
Ajay and Kajol will be seen together again in Toonpur Ka Superhero and they just shot a guest appearance in the song ‘Oye Hoye’ for Anil Devgan’s film Haal-e-Dil.
Ajay is also working on Golmaal Returns and laughs at the rumors surrounding his next film as a director, “I read that I had approached Kareena which was news to me. I haven’t finalised my script. So how can I ask her or any other actor to be part of my next film? For now I’m happy to have Kareena as my co-star in Golmaal Returns. In fact, we leave for Bangkok in a couple of days to shoot the last song. The sequel is much bigger than the first part. “
Finally Ajay says as a artist he wants to make all sorts of film, “I want to blend out-and-out entertainers like Golmaal Returns with more meaningful cinema. Both are equally important.”
