Audience wants entertainment, not education: Ajay Devgan




He acts, directs and produces, and Ajay Devgan’s experience tells him that the bottom line of any film’s box office success depends upon entertainment factor in its script.

Citing the example of Prakash Jha, he says that the director has the skills to turn realistic ideas into engaging and entertaining movies.

The 43-year-old had an amazing luck with Rohit Shetty directed comedies – Golmaal: Fun Unlimited and Golmaal Returns, and his next, Bol Bachchan too is from the same director and same genre.

Variety in roles is what Ajay seems to be focusing on.

Alongside comedies, he managed intense roles with ease by stepping into the shoes of a don in the gangster drama Once Upon A Time in Mumbai and playing a Dalit in political thriller Raajneeti.

Both the films did well at the box office.

After having worked with director Prakash Jha in Raajneeti and GangaaJal, Ajay has teamed up with him again for Satyagraha and praises the director’s expertise in handling subject of his films well.

Satyagraha is said to be based on social activist Anna Hazare’s campaign.

Ajay Jha will also start working on a sequel to GangaaJal after finishing Satyagraha.
