Yes he is, clarifies Golmaal director Rohit Shetty who thinks there are a lot of similarities between Ajay Devgn and Shahrukh Khan, which is why he loves working with the two
Shetty dismisses rumours that his pet actor Ajay Devgn was green with envy when he zeroed in on King Khan for his next movie, Chennai Express. Shetty defends Ajay by saying that the actor is way too passionate about work to get involved in such trivial issues. So what if the duo tasted success in their films together and were touted as a hit pair in the industry, they have all the liberty to go their own ways. The mere evidence being Shetty’s decision to move on in his career by working with King Khan – Ajay’s arch-rival at one point of time. And who wouldn’t, especially if a coveted superstar agrees to work with you. Shetty is dealing with this issue quite tactfully by singing their praises and making sure he doesn’t take sides. He emphasises that apart from a personal trainer, the two share a lot of things in common, such as they are both workaholics and they are hell-bent on bringing about a change in the industry. Well, however hard Shetty tries to put light on the fact that the two are great actors in their own right, but c’mon we know who’s the star and more importantly who’s the superstar!
