Rohit Shetty reveals this similarity between Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn! Here’s what?
Rohit Shetty is one name in Bollywood which is synonymous to BLOCKBUSTER! Touted as the “president of the Rs 100-crore club”, the filmmaker has worked with superstars like Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn to Kareena Kapoor Khan. While Rohit has directed SRK in Chennai Express and Dilwale, he has collaborated with Ajay on a number of films including the Golmaal and Singham series.
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty says the working patterns of Bollywood superstars Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan are the same. He notes that both actors are still around because they work hard and are sincere to their craft.
At the recently concluded International Film Festival of India (IFFI) held in Goa, Shetty was asked about working with both Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan. The director stated, “Their working pattern is the same. Both are very hard working. I have never seen a day when Shah Rukh or Ranveer (Singh) or Ajay come on set and say that they are tired. You will see them sitting in one corner and rehearsing their lines. Where they are today is because of the sincerity towards their work, and because they never took for granted the notion that they are stars.”
Rohit went on to share, “I have done so many films with Ajay, but even today when he has a long scene or a dramatic scene or an emotional scene, you will see him rehearsing with my assistant director. The same goes with Shah Rukh.”

Talking about his Simmba actor Ranveer, the director said, “He always said ‘I am your hero. I was born to do your film’. That was three years ago. We had done an ad together, too. I had told him that whenever I will get the right script, we will do a film together.”
“He has so much energy, you need to channel it in the right way. That’s what happened in Simmba. He enjoyed the film more than anything. He is a mad guy and very sincere about work. He even made a T-shirt that read: ‘Rohit Shetty ka hero’. He is a superstar,” he added.
Currently, Rohit is tied up with his next directorial Sooryavanshi featuring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.
