The 44-year-old is the one actor who has been part of both masala entertainers like ‘Singham’, ‘Son of Sardaar’ and serious cinema such as ‘Satyagraha’, ‘Gangajal’ and ‘Zakhm’.
"I took the risk of doing non-commercial films when no actor was ready to do it. Commercial films are like oxygen to stardom while films like 'Satyagraha' are oxygen to acting. I am happy to be part of both streams," he said.
‘Satyagraha’, the Prakash Jha-directed political drama, has received mixed response from the audience. But Ajay is happy with the kind of reaction that is coming in.
"It's a good feeling the audience is ready to watch good cinema. As an actor it's like a confident booster for me that people accept me in commercial as well non-commercial roles. I have mostly got positive reactions. If you look at the collections it shows people have loved the film," Ajay said.
Released on August 30, ‘Satyagraha’ has reportedly collected Rs 44.19 crore at the box office in four days.
‘Satyagraha’ has an impressive cast which included Amitabh Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee and Amrita Rao besides Ajay.
The film deals with the middle-class movement against the existing political system. It's the story of a man who is a firm believer of Gandhian principles.
