Ajay Devgn: Not Happy With Prakash Jha

Whenever Prakash Jha, plans for any movie, Ajay Devgan is a default character, means, it will be there in his film, either its Dil Kya Kare (1999), Gangaajal (2003) or Apaharan (2005), and it happened this also when he decided to make Rajneeti. Though Ajay is there in the film, but it seems that the actor is upset the Prakash as he sidelined him in the promotions and publicity of Jha’s Raajneeti.

The actor has been missing in most of the promotional campaigns for the film, with the focus is being on Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor.  Ajay is also miffed with Prakash as he is promoting the film as romantic drama not as political drama. As per sources,

“Raajneeti is a powerful political dramatic thriller where the entire cast has good roles. But the actor feels the director has been only showing the romantic angle between Ranbir and Katrina to exploit the couple’s chemistry and off-screen dosti.”

“Devgn didn’t react at first but when it became apparent that Jha was only interested in promoting the Ranbir-Kat pair he sent a strong message through one of the director’s associates.”

A shocked Prakash Jha reacted on this statement and said,

“I would like to check with Ajay before saying anything. Why should he be unhappy with the promos? The music people are doing the promos and they wanted to show the romantic angle. Since the romance is only between Ranbir and Katrina, the promos are showing that.

But now the dialogue promos have started which has Ajay mouthing a very powerful dialogue. I love Ajay as much as I love myself and can never sideline him. I don’t think there’s any issue. I am doing my next two films with him.”
