Ajay Devgn has been a part of Indian Film Industry for over 20 years and the actor has been a associated with acclaimed films like Naajayaz, Zakhm, The Legend of Bhagat Singh and more recently Drishyam. A couple of days back, the versatile actor was felicitated for his immense contribution to Indian Cinema at the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII)'s Big Picture Summit.
At the felicitation ceremony, speaking about different genres in Indian films, Ajay Devgn said,
"When you are an actor you do not think about genres... When you are doing comedy you do think, 'Oh I wish I was doing a serious film as it takes less energy'. Comedy needs a lot of energy and timing. When you are doing action you feel it's tiring. I like to switch and do different things."
Talking about production and direction, Devgn said,
"I won't say that donning the hat of a producer is my favourite one but I love doing it because it stresses you out too much. Rest as an actor or a director, I am pretty much comfortable handling both, so I don't have to worry about that.
Where direction is considered, I am very comfortable because of my father. When I was 11 years old, I used to edit his sequences, which were very difficult for people to edit. It was a lot of training at that point of time because I loved my work and learned from it."
The shooting for Shivaay commences in Cananda from November this year and the film is scheduled to release during Diwali next year.
