When you are working with like minded people then there are no pretenses. So, it’s nice working with him.”Ajay had once said that his daughter Nysa, is his biggest critic. Asked which is her favourite film, he answered, “She has never told me that. She will anyway never tell me something like this [because] she wouldn’t want to make me happy. She might say which is my worst film, but she will never tell me which has been my best. She did watch Golmaal Again, and she loved it. Actually, she watches everything I do, but her liking or not liking any film depends on the kind of film it is.”There were recent reports that as Kajol was busy shooting for the film, Eela, he had to wrap up work early and come home to babysit his younger son, Yug.“It’s not that way. I love spending time with Yug [irrespective of whether] Kajol is shooting or not shooting [for a film]. That’s what I anyway do when I pack up for the day. I go home and spend my time with Yug. Now that my daughter (Nysa) is in Singapore (for higher studies), most of my time is spent with him, and that’s all I do. I enjoy that,” Ajay told Hindustan Times.On his birthday, we bring you some rare and unseen photos of Ajay Devgn that you may not have seen before.Here’s wishing Ajay Devgn very many happy returns of the day.Photos: Yogen Shah

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, on his 74th birthday on Tuesday, said that while the people in the country are raging with anger, it’s time for civilians to show solidarity with the soldiers who fight for their safety.The ongoing bilateral tensions between India and Pakistan spilled over to the entertainment world in both nations when some Indian outfits demanded that Pakistani artistes must be ousted from the country.Asked about the debate about the ban on Pakistani actors, Amitabh said: “People of this country are very angry by the incidents that have been happening at our borders. It’s time to show solidarity. It’s time to show solidarity towards our jawans and armed forces who are sacrificing their lives so that you and me can be safe.”The actor spoke to the media at his office here on the occasion of his birthday. His last release “Pink” raised an important issue of stereotypes associated with women and their safety in the country. It led to debates galore, but Big B said he doesn’t pick films to leave a social impact as such on the society.“We don’t do films thinking it will make an impact or not. If I get a good character and good story, then I decide whether to do it or not. If after doing any role, there is an impact in the society, then it’s great,” said the National Award winning actor.His next project “Thug” will also feature Aamir Khan. He said he is looking forward to that opportunity.“There have been many attempts for us to work together, but we haven’t yet. So yes, I look forward to that opportunity. He is a great star and great actor. He has been ruling the box office and industry for a long time,” he said.The Indian film industry has been going through ups and downs, and there has been talk of various studios shutting shop. One cited reason has been the high remuneration demands of stars.Big B says such hurdles will come and go, but the film industry will always be alive.“This is the film industry and this will be alive and going on. Such hurdles and problems will be coming, but the film industry will go on. The actors are blamed saying they have taken a lot of money and that’s why a film got flopped."That actor has the power to get the audience to come to theatres… Then if an actor is demanding more money, then what’s wrong in it? If the film doesn’t work, in the next film they get (paid) less,” added the actor, who has worked in Bollywood for over four decades and became popular as Hindi cinema’s Angry Young Man and Shahenshah.On Tuesday, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan unveiled a jukebox gifted to him by his fans. He said it is “precious and memorable” for him.“A few years back, someone for Amsterdam had come and told me, ‘We make such things and we would like to make something for you’. I don’t know whether a jukebox will be there or not in the future but this gift is very memorable and precious to me. I will keep this in my office here,” Amitabh told the media at his office here on Tuesday morning.With a career that has spanned over four decades, the actor has explored various characters and looks. He has also travelled widely and explored new things. His hunger to learn more hasn’t gone.On his birthday, he said he hopes to learn to play new instruments and learn new languages.“I can’t play any instruments, but we do have different instruments at our place and I want to learn to play different instruments. I want to learn different languages. I will take out time for that,” said the actor, whose energy and passion towards his craft leave many of his juniors in the industry in awe.As a Sunday routine, the gates of the actor’s residence get thronged by fans who wait to catch a glimpse of him and wave at him. On his birthday too, fans came in to greet him.Asked about how he was planning to spend the day, he said: “I will be spending my day with my family.”Big B, who married actress Jaya Bhaduri, has two children – daughter Shweta and son Abhishek, and three grandchildren – Navya Naveli, Agastya and Aaradhya.–IANSPhotos by YOGEN SHAH
