Ajay Devgn is known for avoiding award functions and red-carpet events. Rarely is he seen attending the screening of a movie or function of a film personality except if it is the promotion of his movies. It is his wife Kajol who on his behalf goes to all these events and award functions and even jokingly has said that she loves to represent her husband at all such occasions.
As the Filmfare Awards 2024 are underway, a video clip of Ajay Devgn giving a Kadak reply on him not attending any award function has gone viral. In the video, the Singham actor can be heard saying, “Dekhiye ye awards nahi hai. Ye uss kisam ke awards nahi hai jispe hum sab jaake nachte gaate aur jo time pe pahuch jate hai usko award diya jata hai. Main waise awards mein hahi jata. Kyunki woh awards awards nahi hote.”
He added, “Aap bhi jante hai ki woh TV shows hote hai. Jitna jyada actor ayenge, jitna bharenge, utna jyada channel use kharidega aur woh paise banayenge. Toh yeh sab paise banane wale awards hai. Toh mein unn awards ki baat karta hoon.”
And true to his words the Golmaal actor has never been spotted going to general award functions. But when his movie Tanhaji won multiple National Awards he happily went to collect them both as the producer and the lead actor of the movie.
Ajay Devgn has always maintained a low profile and has always avoided mixing with the typical Bollywood people. It is not something he adopted after becoming a successful superstar but right from the start of his career, he has avoided media and attending such functions.
Next, he will be seen in Maidaan, Shaitaan, and Singham Again and all these movies are expected to become big hits. Ajay has also announced a sequel to his hit movie Raid.
