After Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan, Ajay Devgn has become the latest actor to join the tattoo brigade in Bollywood, thanks to his All the Best co-star Sanjay Dutt who forced him to go under the needle. The actor, who has also changed his surname from Devgan to Devgn, has got an inking of Lord Shiva on his chest, similar to the one sported by Dutt, who has six tattoos on his body.
“It’s a Lord Shiva tattoo and Sanjay forced me into it. I got it made during the shooting of All the Best,” said Devgn. The actor, who is also producing the film and had launched the music of the film at the Siddhi Vinayak temple, made it clear that the changed surname had nothing to do with any superstition.
“There is no superstition involved with this change of my surname for the movie. My family wanted me to change it for long and I was really apprehensive, but finally I have done it,” Devgn added.
The actor, who stars alongside Bipasha Basu, Mugdha Godse and Fardeen Khan in the comedy flick, said that shooting for the film directed by Rohit Shetty was like “one big party”. In the film, Ajay plays a concept car expert, Prem, whereas Dutt plays a businessman from London.
