Isn't it natural that Ajay Devgn & I make an action film?" - Rohit Shetty
Everyone knows Ajay Devgn's father Veeru Devgan is one of the foremost action-coordinators in the entertainment industry.
What is not that well-known is the fact the Ajay's favourite director Rohit Shetty is also the son of a famous action-coordinator. Rohit is the son of Shetty, the well-known stunt director and actor of the 1970s.
Shetty was not only the biggest most in-demand stunt director of the 1970s and 80s, but he was also famous for his villainous roles which he performed in tandem with his behind-the-camera job as an action director.
In a film that Rohit Shetty will direct in the second-half of 2010 with Ajay Devgn in the lead, the two men pay homage to their fist-friendly fathers who specialized in action sequences.
Says Rohit Shetty, "Isn't it only natural that Ajay and I get together for an action film? Action and stunts are in our genes. Ajay began his career with an action flick Phool Aur Kaante. In fact in Golmaal 2 I had replicated the scene of Ajay perched between two speeding motorbikes, his entrance scene in Phool Aur Kaante. During that film I was an assistant and that's where our friendship started."
The most interesting part of this action flick would be that all the action sequences and stunts would be directed by Rohit Shetty, with huge inputs from Ajay.
