New Delhi: Ajay Devgn, who has been doing action and comedy films lately, says he is keen to star in a romantic movie but he is not being offered good scripts. (Agencies)
The Bollywood star gave romantic hits like "Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha", "Dil Kya Kare" and "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" in the beginning of his career but his past few hits like "Golmaal 3" and "Singham" have been of comedy and action genre.
"I have not heard a good script in a long time. I don't think people come to me with a lot of romantic characters. I would be interested in playing one if the story is good," Ajay said. The 43-year-old's upcoming film "Tezz" is also an action drama starring Kangana Ranaut, Sameera Reddy, Anil Kapoor and Zayed Khan. The film releases tomorrow.
"I just came back from a 50 day outdoor shoot of 'Son Of Sardar' so I didn't really know what was happening with 'Tezz'. Then I saw the film and it has shaped up really well.
It's an action drama where the base and the emotion is very strong," Ajay said.
"I have done the action sequences myself as I usually do my stunts myself. I enjoy doing it. Also, 'Tezz' did not have something so difficult that I couldn't manage," he added.
Ajay, who has been in the industry for more than two decades and has had his share of flops, says there was never a point in his career where he felt things have come to an end.
"I have never been in a situation where I felt that I should give up. Everybody has there lows. When I started, my first film was a big hit and after that the ball kept rolling... Two films didn't work but it never mattered to me.
"It's not that I didn't have work or I was not being offered movies. I was refusing films so I guess I have been very lucky that I never faced a situation where I felt that it's the end," he said.
Ajay insists he is still the same and it does not bother him much if the film doesn't work."It matters to you for a day but you get normal... You cannot stop living. You continue with yet another film with the same amount of enthusiasm and excitement."
Asked why is he never present on any award functions, he said, "I don't believe in awards. I feel they are all a gimmick and they have to sell their software to the channel... So they have to do all that.
"It's not their fault. It's a business for them so when it becomes a business the authenticity and the honesty of the award is gone. My biggest award is when my film works and the audience appreciates my work."
The actor, who is currently wrapping up the shooting of his comedy film "Son Of Sardar", is very happy with way the film has shaped up.
"I am very happy with this film... 80 per cent of it is over and we are shooting the last sequences... If you have a good team and everything is planned then shooting for a movie
becomes very easy and enjoyable," Ajay said.
"Son Of Sardar" is directed by Ashwani Dhir and produced by Ajay. The film also stars Juhi Chawla, Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role.
Ajay, who tried his luck in direction with 2008 film "U Me Aur Hum", has no plans to get back to it any time soon. "I am not directing... You need to take a year off to really concentrate on the script and that kind of time I don't have. So may be later."
