Ajay Devgn at loggerheads with Vishal Bharadwaj
Says a source close to Ajay, “He has decided not to do films for emotional reasons. Though he had initially liked Vishal’s script and had even approved it, after Rascals, he’s being extra careful about upcoming films.”
Ajay is upset with reports that he opted out of MKBKM as he had been offered more money for Son Of Sardar. The source continues, “Fact is, Ajay walked out because of the script. Somewhere along the way, he began to feel that it was too niche a film. He had told Vishal to change the script repeatedly but the director didn’t agree and finally they decided to part ways, after mutually deciding to make an announcement. When the story broke, the actor feels the director played dirty and is very angry.”
In recent times, Ajay has emerged as a mass hero at multiplexes and single screen theatres with Singham and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, he only wants to do entertaining films with universal appeal. Also Vishal’s last film Saat Khoon Maaf didn’t set the box office afire so Ajay is wary about doing a film with him at a time when he has a string of commercial successes behind him.
Ajay confirms, “Money had nothing to do with me opting out of Vishal’s film. I want to cut down on my work commitments from next year and focus on one film at a time. I have stopped doing films for friends and for emotional reasons. This time it’s friendship on one side and business on the other!”
