Why does Ajay Devgn do commercial comedies when he can do an intense Drishyam?

Over the years, actor Ajay Devgn has been associated with quality films like Zakhm, Omkara , The Legend of Bhagat Singh , Deewangee , Company and many more. But lately, the actor has been focusing more on commercial cinema, with films such as Son of Sardar , Action Jackson and Singham, playing stereotyped roles rather than strong performance-oriented characters.

But now Ajay Devgn is finally returning to content-oriented films with Nishikant Kamat's Drishyam in which he is playing a common man on a mission to save his family from an alleged crime.

Devgn says, "I was looking for a script as brilliant as Drishyam because a lot of people told me that the audience is missing the intense side of me. But I only wanted to do an intense film if I got a script better than Company , Zakhm and Gangajaal. Hats off to the writer of Drishyam . This is a fabulous script."

Drishyam is a remake of Mohanlal's National Award winner by the same name. It stars Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Shriya Saran and Rajat Kapoor, and releases on 31 July, 2015.
