Ajay Devgn is an Indian Bollywood film actor, director and producer who made his first screen appearance as a child artist in Bapu’s Pyari Behna (1985). This versatile superstar has a body of work that is possibly the most impressive in its range and caliber.

Born in Delhi on 2nd April 1969 to Veena and Veeru Devgan, Ajay Devgan was exposed to films at a very young age and post his graduation, he began directing video films. Ajay’s brother, Anil Devgan, is a Hindi film director. Devgan’s first ever introduction on celluloid saw him make a jaw-dropping entry on two motorcycles, a feat one could only expect from the son of legendary action director, Veeru Devgan. The film was Phool Aur Kaante and it marked the arrival of Hindi cinema’s new ‘angry young man’ a title bestowed earlier on Amitabh Bachchan post Zanjeer. Ajay quickly solidified his position as the angry young man with several action films.

Family

Being the son of a master action director, it was only obvious that Ajay would excel in action, but he surprised the industry and audiences alike with his superb comic performance in Inder Kumar‘s Ishq and his emotionally moving performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, exhibiting a range that was truly rare. By then Ajay had proven that there was no genre of cinema which was alien to him and he continued to excel in each of his roles. His stellar performance in Mahesh Bhatt‘s Zakhm fetched him his first ever National Award. His subtle yet hard-hitting performance in Company made him a Ram Gopal Varma favorite. Ajay later worked with Ramu on Bhoot.

His first attempt at non-commercial cinema earned him rave reviews for his performance opposite Aishwarya Rai in Rituparno Ghosh‘s Raincoat. In his personal life, he married leading actress Kajol on 24th February 1999. The couple has two children, a daughter, Nysa Devgan, and a son, Yug Devgan. Contrary to his on-screen image, Ajay is a rather quiet personality but yet a master prankster on the sets of his films.

The last two years have seen Ajay grow in stature. In 2009, he had some lovely films on hand, like Vipul Shah‘s London Dreams, which had shades of ‘Amadeus‘ and the laugh riot All The Best. The year 2012 has turned out even better for Ajay with releases like Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge, Rajneeti, Once Upon A Time in Mumbai and Aakrosh. And in Diwali, he had seen in a comic caper, Rohit Shetty‘s Golmaal 3. The best is definitely yet to come for this actor. The last two years have seen Ajay grow in stature.
