In his career of over two decades actor Ajay Devgn has dabbled in almost all genres of film, but that hasn’t stopped him from experimenting with his roles.“I want to try to balance drama, action and comedy. I want to do every genre and am ready to experiment with my roles. I don’t want to let my producers or directors down,” IANS reports Devgn as saying.
His last release Singham crossed the INR1 billion at the box office and even though he embraced his success well, the actor says this level of popularity and fame frightens him. “It feels great when you are a part of film reaching the one billion mark. But at the same time, it frightens me as an actor and makes me feel more responsible with every release.”
“I am working hard and I’m happy with the films I do and I expect that every film I am a part of should cross the billion mark,” says Devgn, who is looking forward to the release of his film Tezz. The film, which also features Boman Irani, Zayed Khan, Anil Kapoor, Sameera Reddy and Kangna Ranaut with southern star Mohanlal in a cameo role, will hit the screens on April 27.
Apart from experimenting with films, Devgn is keeping himself busy with socially responsible activities. Recently, the actor was in news for investing money in solar-powered generators. The Bollywood actor is keen to introduce this concept into film-making because he believes that these generators will lead to less wastage of power on sets, according to moneylife.in. To further show his support, Devgn has also invested in a state of the art solar park in Gujarat. The solar park located is a joint venture between a corporate company, Devgn and producer Kumar Mangat of Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji fame.
