Tattoo Tales For 'Mahashivratri': Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt

Movie Talkies19 February 2012

It's an inked high that both of them share. Ajay Devgn and Sanjay Dutt, that is. Both actors devoted to Lord Shiva, sport tattoos of Him on their (star) bodies.

And on the auspicious occasion of Mahashivratri, it's time to make a clean breast of things. Er, for Ajay Devgn, expressly, since the Lord Shiva tattoo that he sports figures on his chest. Dutt on the other hand, has it inked from his left shoulder to upper arm.

Reportedly, it was Dutt who convinced Devgn to get himself inked with the Lord Shiva image during the filming of All The Best.

States a close source, "Ajay bears a calm form of Lord Shiva on his chest, while Sanjay's tattoo is that of a rudra (angry)  avatar, with the words Om Namah Shiva written below it in Sanskrit. Ajay's tattoo has his daughter's name Nysa also written below it."

Adds the insider, "The occasion of Mahashivratri is celebrated with a lot of joy in the Devgn household, but this time around Ajay may have to miss it since he will be in Wai shooting for Bol Bachchan. Usually, Ajay is always at home on this day."
