some moments with the actor AJAY DEVGAN

Ajay Devgn was quite candid when we caught up with him for a chat.

The actor talked about his upcoming film, Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji, and also revealed the truth about award functions in India. The actor also told Patcy N why he hated his 1990's hairstyle!

Read on:

What made you say yes to Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji?

When Madhur told me he wanted to make a comedy, I decided to listen to the script out of curiosity because Madhur is known for making realistic dramas. I wanted to see what kind of comedy he will make.

When Madhur narrated the script, I was taken aback because this film will make you cry as well as laugh.

You can see Madhur's touch in the characters -- they are very real. When you see the film, it will seem like your tale or your neighbour's tale.

The characters don't do comedy but the situations are so comic that you will automatically laugh.

What can we expect from DTBHJ? It is story of three friends. I play a bank manager, going through a mid-life crisis. He's going through a divorce. An 18-year old girl comes into his life, and chats casually with him like today's youngsters. But he thinks like an old man, and feels that the girl is in love with him. He tries to please her and starts acting like a 20-year old. He starts modifying himself, goes out with youngsters, and it's funny in its own way. Slowly, he realises that if he had put in so much effort in his marriage, it would have been saved. Emraan Hashmi's character Emmy does not believe in love. He goes out with different women every night. Since he is a gym instructor, he targets wealthy women and lives off their money. He advises Omi and me on how to behave with women and flirt with them. But when he finally falls in love, his character behaves the worst because he advises himself! Omi's character is very simple. He does not even touch the girl before marriage. So we have tried to present today's generation and their different types of thinking and how it eventually changes. I enjoyed shooting for this film because the comedy is different. How much do you identify with this character? I don't identify with the character. I am happy in life. But this character is going through a divorce, that's why he is going through a mid-life crisis. I have gone through all the phases in my life, shown in the film, except the divorce part. In my younger days, I used to run behind girls and do many things that I would not do now -- things that you later wonder what I was doing. So how many girls did you fall in love with before Kajol? Can't remember the count (laughs)! Image: A scene from Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji

Do you think today's action films are different from the kind you did earlier in your career? All of us think action has changed but I don't think so. Look at the last few films that have worked at the box office -- Wanted, Dabangg and Ghajini. We did this kind of action 17 years ago, and the audience is enjoying it. I think we were trying hard to become over-intelligent and make different kind of movies. But at the end of the day, the audience wants entertainment. They only want to see entertaining films like Robot. What is the one thing that you look for in a script? The script should touch you. There should be no confusion about whether you want to do it or not. If you start wondering if you want to do it, you should not take it up. Then the next thing would be the producer and director, and whether they will be able to make the kind of film he promise to. Image: A scene from Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji
