Actor Ajay Devgn’s film Shivayy is all set to release alongside the much awaited Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, but he seems unaffected by the competition.

Actor Ajay Devgn’s film Shivayy is all set to release alongside the much awaited Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, but he seems unaffected by the competition.

Ajay looks relaxed, speaks about the date clash and strained relations with Dharma Productions, and his stand for not working with artistes from across the border.

“I do not believe in camps; I trust working hard. Besides, I do not interfere in anyone’s work, nor do I allow any interference in mine. I’ve been in the Hindi film industry toiling and spending my sweat and energy on genuine work. If at all anyone tries to put me and my work at stake, then I don’t spare them,” says the actor.

Although both films are releasing on the same date, they have an equal distribution of theaters. “Anyone can choose the date of release according to the completion of their film. I have no problem with Karan’s film releasing on the same date. Since I had picked up this date quite in advance, I’ll stand by it,” says Ajay.

When asked if there are any differences with Karan (hinting at Kamal Khan’s tweet), he replied with a smile. “Yes, but those issues are different. It’s between both of us and I wouldn’t want to elaborate on the matter.”

Karan and Kajol were best of friends, but now their relationship too is strained. Ajay Devgn didn’t deny it, but refused to comment.

Ajay made his stand clear of not working with Pakistani artistes in the current scenario. Wife Kajol too was all praises on twitter, saying she is proud of her husband.

“I am very clear here. This is an emotional moment for the families of those who have laid their lives protecting our country. At a time like this, should we not stand by their and our country’s side Now if your son or any family member who is an Army official is paid to die on the borders, will you as a mother not stand against those who have killed your son This is a situation when we shouldn’t think about extending any cultural or business strategies with them. I don’t have any political agenda and do not wish to be a brand ambassador of any state. We all have to prioritise things according to the need of the hour,” he concludes.
