Ajay Devgan

How far can you trust the appearance of a man who did away with the second vowel of his surname, to the endless inconvenience of hacks like us, not to mention the number of fans who still stand by him? ‘Experimenting with looks’ is one thing, boldly putting on bad make-up is another. So, ignoring the tepid claps of those who deem this lush beard a laudable effort, pay close attention to the corners of Ajay Devgn’s mouth. Other than the fact that the brownish hue doesn’t match his hair colour, the falsity of the appendage would probably shame itinerant theatre companies dealing in mythologicals a century ago. “My name is Sudarshan,” writes Ajay incoherently. “Who are you calling Ajay?” Some think it’s an elaborate ruse to whet appetite for an OTT debut.

All happy families are happy in the same way—at least in photos. Ajay Devgn and Kajol’s family confirms that queer genetic rule: the boy (Yug) resembles mom, the girl (Nysa) takes after dad. We also confirm that Kajol and Nysa are fine, for some yobs (mind you, even the jobless have more time) spread the rumour that they’re down with coronavirus.

Bollywood actress Kajol Devgan and Ajay Devgan spotted while promoting their upcoming film ' Tanahji', in Mumbai.

An Othello from western UP! Vishal Bhardwaj took Shakespeare to the dusty badlands of the Hindi heartland and conjured a powerful film. The surprise of surprises was Langda Tyagi, played to perfection by an otherwise metro-centric Saif Ali Khan.

He Plays With Vampire The genial gladness in the presence of stars belies a man of fierce disposition (see the glint in the eye). People who saw Mumbai ACP Vasant Dhoble use the hockey stick on his crackdown on immorality wouldn't be fooled though. Ajay Devgn and Karishma have good company at the Mumbai Police function.

Red, Blue, Rainbow Scores of panjandrums might strut about in jumpsuits that might unnerve Superman (no, not Kajol; she has class and obvious confidence), but few would match Tanuja in lightness of grace and simple, heart-stopping beauty. Mother, daughter and Ajay Devgn at a function in Mumbai prompt our statement.
