--- Personal Quotes ---


"I don't talk too much, I let my work do the talking."

"I was a reluctant newcomer,I had no method as an actor when I started off. Born into a film family,
never seen another life and always wanted to be in films. I always thought I would direct films one day.
I used to make video films when I was cast in my first movie. I had not expected it all."

"I am a very spontaneous actor. I feel the character. I am one of the actor in the industry now who is
doing every genre and audience have accepted me with open arms. I try to be the character. Instead of
the character becoming Ajay Devgn, Ajay becomes the character."

"I don’t believe in film awards. I have always made it a point to never take those awards, they
(the organisers of private awards) need maximum number of stars to attend their ceremony, so they call
you up and tell you that if you attend their event, they will give you an award. So what is the point of
getting an award only if you will attend the show? And if you are unable to make it at the last minute…
the chit with the name of the winner changes and another actor gets the trophy. I have lost faith in such

"The journey has been comfortable so far. I did not force myself to do anything. I feel lucky to have got
right scripts and to work with right directors and important thing is that these films were accepted by the

"Business has always been the most important thing. You make a film for people to like it. And that will
happen when you make good films. And when the film is good, it’ll definitely fetch money. So ultimately,
it’s the same thing. Whether you make a film for money, praise or satisfaction, basically you are making
it for the audience."

"I appreciate straightforward people. I don’t like those who feel differently and behave differently. I like
people who are the same on your face and behind your back. At least, it’s clear whether you are on this
side or that side of the line."

"She (Kajol) is honest and frank as ever. If she believes something is wrong, she says it right on your
face. She doesn’t care how you will take it."

"She (Kajol) has made me a responsible person. Fifteen years ago, I was different — absolutely violent;
I’d behave in any manner anywhere. Now, that has changed."

"According to me, making comedy and comedy happening are two different things. I enjoy doing comedy
roles because this not only entertains the audience, but also the performers. And it is a known fact that
comedy not only makes us laugh, but also makes us forget the stress and strains in life."

"I don't have any hang-ups working with anyone in this entire film industry and I work with anyone and
everyone with whom I find myself free and relaxed. Unlike many, I do not belong to any camp and it is
also not necessary that I will be in all the films of any particular director. And everyone in the industry is
aware of this."

"I never avoid the media, but it is true that I am a bit lazy on this matter."

"Today the media is certainly very powerful and I want to give you an example. Today if you write
something wrong or untrue about me only I and those close to me will know that this is a gossip. But
more than 80 percent of the people will believe what you are right. And interestingly, if I need to clarify
my stand, I will again have to seek the help of the media as I don't have any other alternative."

"I am husband for my wife and a father for my daughter. I try to shoulder both the responsibilities in
the best possible way."

"I know my responsibilities very well. I take time out to spend with my daughter. I have the
responsibilities of a father as well as that of my family. So I have to take care of all."

"I am quite happy with my career. 'Omkara' and 'Golmaal' have transformed me. I am a star not

"Politics mostly is known to be a bad game. But who do we blame? It is we who are responsible to bring
about progress in the society."

"I beg to differ - I feel politics is a good game but people engaged in it need to work selflessly. It needs
to be having selfless people who could work sincerely for one and all."

"I maintain proper diet, and workout has enabled me to maintain good health."

"One flop film doesn't affect you as you are not running short of good films. People also know that film
didn't do well, but the actor has been accepted for so many years, so it happens. It's part of the game..."

"I have decided not to do any vulgar films after Rascals...I believe many stars are not doing that... It's
okay if a newcomer or young kids make it because they don't have an image, but stars have an image
and children's also identifies with it. So, if they do it, it goes wrong..."

"My daughter is my biggest critic. She comes and tells me, you were not interested in that song. Why
were you dancing when you were not interested? She passes such genuine comments..."

"Today's youth is concerned about what is happening. Earlier, there were no candle light marches. Today,
things have changed and they (the youth) react to it and are not depending on the government..."

"Because of Kajol, I have become calmer and much secure. So basically, I am happy. As far as work is
concerned, we hardly discuss work at home."

"The films I make, I believe in them. Sometimes you decide to do a film thinking that this will be made
in such a manner and then you start realising that it's not going the right way, then you lose it."
