Kajal Aggarwal, a well-known actor down south, will soon make her Bollywood debut with Rohit Shetty’s Singham opposite Ajay Devgn. Though the film is touted to be an action thriller centered around Devgn, Kajal calls it ‘a perfect Bollywood debut’ for her. “It is not the amount of screen space that I have but it is the quality of work that I deliver in that time. Yes it is an Ajay Devgn film but I will stand out with my performance too. And I am sure after watching the film people won’t stop loving me,” says the 26-year-old actor.
Ajay has lived upto his image of being an ultimate prankster. “Since day one of my shoot I have been his favourite victim to crack all possible jokes. But as they were all in good humour so it proved like a good ice breaker and Rohit Shetty (director of the film), Ajay and I got along really well,” she adds. Singham is a Hindi remake of a Tamil superhit with the same title starring Suriya and Anushka Shetty. “The script may be same but the treatment is a lot different as it caters to the Hindi audience,” she says. When asked to pick the better performer between Ajay and Suriya, Kajal dodged the question diplomatically, calling ‘both her friends and actors of great caliber’.
On reports circulating about her being superstitious, Kajal says: “Whenever I’ve shot my introductory scene in a white outfit, the film has become a hit. My wearing white in the opening shot of Singham has been blown out of proportion.” Being new to Bollywood, Kajal is open to all kinds of roles that come her way, but has set certain limitations for herself. “I am ready to do all kind of roles but I have my reservations about clothes and intimacy.”
On her role
It is an Ajay Devgn film but I will stand out with my performance too. People would love me for my role.
All the girls of my age are talented but I am fond of Deepika and Sonakshi as they are really versatile.
My loyalty lies down South but being a Punjabi, Bollywood excites me a lot. So I will strike a balance.
