I am a born director, says Ajay Devgan

Keeping his fingers crossed ahead of the release of his directorial debut U, Me aur Hum, Bollywood actor Ajay Devgan says he is going to continue directing good entertaining movies whether the film clicks or not at the box office.
Devgan says that for him it was not a major shift from acting to direction as he believes that he is a born director and has that fire within him.
"I started my career directing small budget films, so it was not a major change. In my early days, apart from acting in movies, I tried my hand in production, direction, music composing and all," Devgan says.
"I assisted my father in his directorial ventures several times and both of us knew that I have the flame in me to develop an idea and give it a shape. But then, I became an actor and didn't get the time to direct."
Devgan is very positive about the success of his first directorial attempt. He believes he has done justice with the script and has come out with a entertaining story.
"I will continue with direction as it is my favourite hobby or you can say a passion. I will not make a movie only for the sake of it, but will do it only when a right script will come my way," says the actor, who has won two national awards for best actor for his role in "Zakhm", and "Legend of Bhagat Singh".
But that does not mean curtains down for him as an actor as Devgan says his acting career will continue side-by-side.
Though a veteran in Bollywood, Devgan hopes that the film, in which his wife Kajol co-stars him, will be an entertainer.
