Apart from his popularity in Bollywood, Ajay is also quite well-known for his college day as he claimed himself to be a âgundaâ (goon). When asked about it in 2018, he told Mid Day that he was indeed a âfull onâ baddie who even went behind the bars and was also sent to the lockup twice.
Ajay went on to recall the time when he sneaked out his father-filmmaker Veeru Devgnâs gun without his knowledge and quickly reminded himself by calling it illegal.
The âRRRâ actor admitted that he never had to struggle in life, although he did work hard. Ajay who completed his studies at Mumbaiâs Mithibai college, always had a passion for films. In fact, he started helping his father with film edits when he was just 8 or 9 years old.
âBy 12-13, I had started making my own films. My father had bought me a camera. I used to do a lot of special effects, create my own sets, by the time I was 15,â he said. Ajay first officially shot some portions of his fatherâs film âMadam Xâ starring Rekha in 1994.
Years after facing the camera as an actor, Devgn finally made his directorial debut with his film âU Me Aur Humâ under his banner.
