“I personally think Ajay is the most versatile actor that we have today. He has been successful in all genres – whether comedy or drama,” Kajol told reporters Wednesday at the music launch of their upcoming action animation movie Toonpur ka Superhero.
She can’t be more right as the 41-year-old proved his versatility with five releases this year which were different from each other – he was seen in two comedies Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge and Golmaal 3, political thriller Raajneeti, crime saga Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and a film on honour killing titled Aakrosh.
When asked which character of Ajay impressed her the most, Kajol said: “I’m very impressed with Ajay Devgn in real life (more) than any of his on screen characters.”
Both will be seen in Toonpur Ka Superhero, which is produced by Krishika Lulla and Kumar Mangat Pathak. Kireet Khurana has directed the movie, which will hit the screens Dec 24.
Talking about her experience of working again with Ajay after the 2008 release U, Me Aur Hum, Kajol said: “It’s great fun working with people you know. The best part is that you’re comfortable with each other.”
And why did she decide to be a part of an animation film?
“I liked the idea a lot. Most importantly, the script and the screenplay were very good. All the cartoons were very interesting characters. The whole script was very tight. So I decided to do it,” she said.
