Ajay Devgan 10 Fast Facts, Bio, Wiki
Devgan was born to a Punjabi Hindu Saraswath-Vishwakarma family originally from Amritsar, Punjab. The family has connections to the Hindi film industry in Mumbai.
Devgn’s father, Veeru Devgan, was a stunt choreographer and action-film director and his mother, Veena, is a film producer. His cousin, Anil Devgan, is a filmmaker and screenwriter.
Devgn graduated from the Silver Beach High School in Juhu and then studied at Mithibai College.
Devgn began a relationship with the actress Karisma Kapoor while filming Jigar, however, the couple ended their relationship in 1995. That same year, Devgn’s relationship with the actress, Kajol Mukherjee, began whilst they were co-starring in Gundaraj.
The media called them “an unlikely pair” due to their contrasting personalities. On 24 February 1999, the couple married in a traditional Maharashtrian Hindu ceremony at the Devgan home. The couple has two children.
Their daughter, Nysa, was born in 2003 and their son, Yug, was born in 2010. Devgn and Kajol stored their newborn son’s umbilical cord blood and tissues to act as a source of stem cells in case of serious ailment.
In August 2009, Devgn changed the spelling of his surname Devgan to Devgn, at the request of his family. He is a practicing Shaiva Hindu who prominently wears a Rudraksha which, along with other religious themes, features in his films.
Devgn was the first Bollywood personality to own a private jet for transport to shooting locations, to promotions and for personal trips.
Ajay was born in Delhi to a Punjabi family with roots in Amritsar.
In 1985, he did his debut as a child actor in Bapu’s “Pyari Behna” where he played the role of the child version of Mithun Chakraborty character.
At the age of 9, he started driving, as his father was stunt choreographer and allowed him to drive on sets.
His real name is Vishal Veeru Devgan, but for the industry, he changed his name from Vishal to Ajay. Later, he changed his surname from Devgan to Devgn on family and numerological advice.
He charmed the audience with his lead role in Phool Aur Kaante in 1991, which was a blockbuster.
He got great laurels from the audience for his stunts performed in the film. Moreover, his two motorcycles balancing stunt got so famous after Phool Aur Kaante that it was often used in his other films later.
Ajay was the first choice for the film Karan Arjun, which later went to Salman Khan. He was also asked to star in Darr, but due to some reasons he rejected and Shah Rukh Khan got the role.
He couldn’t receive his first National Award for ‘Zakhm’ (1998) because on that day he was shooting in Ooty, and the only flight to Delhi got cancelled.
He has also given a plethora of cameo appearances in movies like Sar Utha Ke Jiyo, Taarzan: The Wonder Car, Teen Patti, Ready, Fitoor, Guest in London, Poster Boys, etc.
His performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was critically acclaimed by the audience. It was revealed that Ajay and Aishwarya hardly interacted with each other on the sets, but the two were impressive on-screen.
In 1997, his super sarcastic role in an Indian Hindi-language comedy-drama film- Ishq was a hit and made him more popular amongst his fans.
After his award-winning performance in Zakhm, he was expected to be seen in the movie “Singer,” but due to the producer’s involvement in 1993 bomb blasts, the film got shelved.
Again in 1999, his starring in Feroz Khan’s “Qurbaan Tujh Par Meri Jung” was shelved.
Ajay met Kajol for the first time on the sets of Hulchul, but Kajol didn’t like him at first. Later, during the shoot of Gundaraj, the tables got turned, and the duo blossomed into love.
After dating each other for a few years, on 24 February 1999, the couple tied the knot.
He came up with his own production company named Ajay Devgn Films Productions in 2000, and Raju Chacha was his first film under this.
Apart from doing films with Rohit Shetty, they both are friends since childhood and used to attend the same birthday parties as they were sons of famous action directors.
His forte is mostly emotional and intense scenes, but he has also outstood in action and comedy.
He was the first person apart from the Bachchans, who was aware of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s marriage.
According to some online sources, Ajay has not watched his wife’s Kajol evergreen hit- Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge yet.
U Me Aur Hum was his directional debut, which starred Kajol, but was not a box-office hit.
Ajay’s costumes in the movie “Rascals” were designed by about 60 international designers.
Despite seeing his bold and confident personality in films, it’s hard to judge that he is a reserved and media-shy person. However, the media addresses him by saying “Man of Few Words”.
He was approached by the producers of “Drishyam” post delay of his home production, and he got agreed to do the movie only on one condition, which was to complete it within three months. The producers assured him this and the film was a big hit.
