Even though they have been part of the film industry for more than two decades now, Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan have never shared screen space. But last month, when a photograph of them having dinner in Bulgaria went viral, rumours about the Singham (2011) actor playing a cameo role in SRK’s next started doing the rounds. Directed by Rohit Shetty, this film also stars Ajay’s wife, Kajol. Coincidentally, it was being shot in Bulgaria at the time the photograph went viral. But Rohit rubbishes the rumours.
“Ajay is not doing my film. Just because one photograph of him [having dinner with Shah Rukh] came out, people started saying, ‘Ajay is also in the film.’ Won’t I be called a liar at the time of the film’s release if I deny it now despite him being part of the movie?” asks Rohit, who has worked with Ajay in almost all his films, including the Golmaal series.
While reports suggested that Ajay landed in Bulgaria, while Rohit and SRK were already filming there, the director says that the news was far from the truth. “Ajay was in Bulgaria for the recce of his directorial venture. People said that he landed up [during our shoot], but what happened was the complete opposite. We were the ones who reached Bulgaria after him,” he says.
