Actor Ajay Devgn who had joined the 100 crore club recently and became the part of an Elite club says meaty and virile roles are only meant to men and not for the boys. Most of the starts who joined the 100 crore club like Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar are over 40 years and they are the only ones who can dare to do masala entertainers which mostly relies on star power.
Ajay Devgn feels no young actor can challenge their superiority and says “There is no success mantra as to why we all are still liked and doing well. I think when the audience accepts one actor it is for life, till you stop working. The kind of films that have worked well at the box office in the recent past you can’t cast boys in it.”
“Be it ‘Dabangg’, ‘Rowdy Rathore’,’Singham’… you can’t take a boy as it won’t to do justice to the film and the role. Like boys can do romance and all but eventually they grow to be men. The boys (young actors) are just beginning. Everything is about maturity and being a man.. Heroism is being a man,” Said Ajay Devgn to the media.
“We have to choose roles depending on the age. We can’t do college, romantic hero kind of a film today. No one will come to me with this kind of role and neither will I accept it. Meaty roles are for men and not for kids,” added Ajay.
Ajay Devgn made his debut through “phool Aur Khante” in 1991 and delivered so many blockbusters since then and recently revived the masala movie trend by making the movies like “Singham”, “Son of Sardar” and his latest movie “Himmatwala” is all set to release on 29th march 2013.
