Actor Ajay Devgn says that he will take up a Hollywood project only if it is meaty enough.

Bollywood actors such as Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have recently bagged plum projects in Hollywood, however Ajay Devgn says that he is yet to find good work in the West. “I have got many offers, but nothing that I would like to do. In the future, if I get good work, I will take it up. I am always on the lookout for good work, so if I get offered anything worth my while, why not?,” says the 47-year-old actor.

More than happy with how his career is going in Bollywood, Ajay, who is shooting for his production Shivaay, is confident that the film will recover money. “We can recover the amount we have spent. We are making it (the film) in a different way. The hard work which we put into the film and the way we have shot it, is unique. It’s a drama, but planned on a large scale,” he says.

Talking about how he planned the film, he says, “Instead of roping in people who would charge high prices to be in the film, we have used the money in making a better film. This is why the price of shooting the film has increased,” he adds.

The previous schedule was shot in Bulgaria and Ajay is happy with the results. “We shot in -20 degrees. I want to thank my unit for going through the hardship with me. I didn’t meet my family for two-and-a-half months, but they visited the sets in the last days,” he says.

Ajay has been in the industry for more than two decades, but a new film still makes him nervous. “There is a little bit of nervousness while shooting, which pushes you to do better. You question yourself, with every shot, if you would be able to pull this off. During the release, I think you are anxious and not nervous. You want to know if people will like it,” he says.

However, the years in the industry has taught him to choose his projects well. “You grow with the times. Many films which I did, I would not do now. The audiences are changing and this changes your mindset too,” he says.
