Ajay Devgan take on ‘Nepotism’:
In Bollywood, nepotism is the one word that everyone is obsessed with. Additionally, Ajay Devgn addressed the nepotism controversy in this episode. The actor emphasised how years of hardship precede one’s current position. Everyone finds it difficult, whether they are outsiders or in some other way connected to the industry. Everyone is required to put in the same amount of effort. “You have to work hard, and the struggle is the same for everyone,” the actor remarked.
Ajay Devgn-Rohit Shetty on New Generation of actors:
During the conversation, Karan Johar asked the actor-director duo their thoughts on the new generation of actors. To which, Rohit Shetty shared, “I think there is a fighting spirit. There is too much insecurity or too much validation they need from social media and from the people whom they don’t know. I think they are very insecure. And I don’t know why. Maybe they have their own thing because they are born in this generation. They even overthink every decision.”
The failure of Cirkus, starring Ranveer Singh:
Ultimately, it comes down to business, so it is necessary to discuss both successful and unsuccessful movies. For Rohit Shetty, it was Cirkus, starring Ranveer Singh. He revealed that his failure as a director was a result of the movie’s failure. But Rohit also talked about how he handled this business setback. When Anupam Kher stopped by his office after the movie’s premiere, he told him this endearing tale. “After a point in your life, when you’ve worked so hard, it’s the event that fails, it’s not you,” Anupam Kher once said.
Ajay Devgn and Karan Johar are at odds:
As Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil clashed, Ajay Devgn and Karan Johar were at odds. KJo remarked, “Whatever the altercation was and it was a misunderstanding and misconception, we didn’t speak,” remembering how Ajay was kind despite the argument. Kajol and I remained silent. Since we are such close friends, I’m sure he had a difficult time with his wife. However, he was really kind.
Ajay Devgan does not like socialising:
It’s no secret that Ajay despises socialising. This has been addressed numerous times on various platforms and during various interviews. How much Ajay Devgn dislikes going to parties or socialising in large groups. Ajay stated that he prefers to keep a low profile because he feels awkward in social situations. According to the actor, he prefers more personal and private interactions. He joked that on days when he decides to go to a gathering, he might end up getting sick by the evening, resulting in some light-hearted arguments with his wife Kajol.
Nysa Devgan and Ishaan future plans:
In the episode, Ajay Devgan and Rohit Shetty were questioned about their children’s ambitions to become actors. Ajay said of his daughter Nysa Devgan, “Right now she doesn’t want to be (come into the acting world).” I don’t think she wants to be, but if something changes tomorrow, they will rerun a 20-year-old interview in which Ajay Devgan said this, but there is currently no chance.”
“Yes, he wants to be in,” the director said of Rohit’s son Ishaan. He’s made his decision. He has to go through the entire process as if I am going to take my car back from him. He must go through that ordeal.”
Reactions of Ajay and Salman to success and failure:
Rohit Shetty mentioned an intriguing quality of both Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn when discussing how people handle failure in today’s world. The super stars’ approaches to success and failure are strikingly alike, according to the director. The director revealed that both of the leading men have a very casual attitude toward their films, regardless of how well they have done. Regardless of the box office result, you can always find them both casually hanging out outside.
