Ajay Devgn: If Kajol and I do a film together, we cannot play stereotypical characters – Ajay Devgn doesn’t talk about his actress-wife, Kajol, unless you ask him pointed questions about her. The actor, who is fiercely guarded about his private life, prefers not to bring up her name in a conversation. However, this doesn’t undermine the fact that he has a healthy respect for his wife’s talent and her body of work.
During a recent interview, when one asked him why he hadn’t teamed up with his biwi after U Me Aur Hum (2008), the Bollywood superstar replied, “Kajol and I are at a stage in our respective careers where we cannot play stereotypical characters.
Unless a writer or a filmmaker comes forward with a script that is challenging and justifies our presence in the same film, it’s going to be hard for us to act together. When we were younger, it was a breeze doing something like Hulchul (1995), Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha (1998), or Raju Chacha (2000). Years later, I directed her in U Me Aur Hum. I’d love to do a movie with her and I’m sure, if you ask Kajol, her answer would also be the same. However, a routine love story may not be the ideal script for us at this stage because we’ve been married for two decades.”
