Whether tickling audience's funny bone or knocking out bad guys with blood-curdling roar, Bollywood's 'intense' actor Ajay Devgn knows his job. But a film such as Rascals breaks the momentum. In the city on Tuesday, he says that Rascals was a mistake.

"I will not repeat it," says Devgn. In the past one and half years, his films such as Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, Golmaal 3, Raajneeti and Singham, turned out to be huge box-office successes. He has, yet again, teamed up with Rohit Shetty, director of Golmaal series and Singham, for this year's awaited film Bol Bachchan that also stars Abhishek Bachchan.

On box office boom
"A good film always works irrespective of genre. What a film requires the most is a fresh and engaging subject."

On action v/s comedy
"I try to strike a good balance. For instance, while Bol Bachchan is a comedy, my upcoming film, Tezz, is an action drama. I am also shooting for Sons of Sardar, which is a romantic drama."

On Rohit Shetty
"He is a fine director. Sometime you just click with a person and our association has shaped up well over the years. I am also confident about Bol Bachchan's success since its subject is hilarious and strong. It has been shot very well too."

On upcoming Tezz
"I am hopeful of a good opening for this film which is a thriller with thrust on action sequences. Having Anil Kapoor as a co-actor is amazing; it is wonderful to see how well he has been carrying himself in different roles for the past 30 years."

On being in Punjab
"I have been shooting in Punjab for the film, Son of Sardar, for the past two months. Being in Punjab has been quite exciting but it is also draining me now. I am feeling completely homesick and returning home in two-three days."
