Family background and marriage (Ajay Devgn Biography)

Devgn was born to a Punjabi Hindu Saraswath-Vishwakarma family originally from Amritsar, Punjab. The family has connections to the Hindi film industry in Mumbai. Devgn’s father, Veeru Devgan, was a stunt choreographer and action-film director and his mother, Veena, is a film producer. His cousin, Anil Devgan, is a filmmaker and screenwriter. Devgn graduated from Silver Beach High School in Juhu and then studied at Mithibai College.

Devgn began a relationship with the actress Karisma Kapoor while filming Jigar, however, the couple ended their relationship in 1995. That same year, Devgn’s relationship with the actress, Kajol Mukherjee, began whilst they were co-starring in Gundaraj. The media called them “an unlikely pair” due to their contrasting personalities. On 24 February 1999, the couple married in a traditional Maharashtrian Hindu ceremony at the Devgan home. The couple has two children. Their daughter, Nysa, was born in 2003 and their son, Yug, was born in 2010. Devgn and Kajol stored their newborn son’s umbilical cord blood and tissues to act as a source of stem cells in case of a serious ailment. In August 2009, Devgn changed the spelling of his surname Devgan to Devgn, at the request of his family. He is a practicing Shaiva Hindu who prominently wears a Rudraksha which, along with other religious themes, features in his films. Devgn was the first Bollywood personality to own a private jet for transport to shooting locations, promotions, and for personal trips.

Career (Ajay Devgn Biography)

Film debut, breakthrough and rise to prominence (1991–99)

As Devgn entered the film industry in 1991, he changed his stage name from his birth name, Vishal, to “Ajay” due to several other actors named Vishal being launched at the same time, including Manoj Kumar‘s son. He began his professional career in Phool Aur Kaante and received a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. He co-starred with Madhoo. In his opening scene, Devgn performed a split while balancing between two motorcycles. His next film was Jigar (1992), a Bollywood martial arts film co-starring Karisma Kapoor. It was released on Diwali weekend and became the seventh-highest-grossing movie of that year, taking ₹7 crores (US$880,000) at the box office.

In 1993, Devgn starred in Dil Hai Betaab, a movie about a love triangle and romantic themes such as revenge. He next featured in Divya Shakti and then Sangram, a story of enmity between two fathers. Devgn then worked with Deepak Bahry, who directed the action film Ek Hi Raasta, and with Deepak Pawar, who directed Platform. Other releases that year was ShaktimanDhanwan, and Bedardi.

In 1999, Devgn starred in the romantic drama Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, in which he played Vanraj, a man who tries to help his wife (Aishwarya Rai) reunite with her lover (Salman Khan). Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam marked a significant turning point in Devgn’s career. The film, an adaptation of Maitreyi Devi’s Bengali novel Na Hanyate, was directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and co-starred by Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. Devgn was highly praised for his performance. Rediff said: “Ajay’s role reminds you of one he did in another film, Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha. There he is searching for the boyfriend of the girl he secretly loves. But intense scenes are his forte and he does well here. He’s particularly good in the scene where he gets exasperated with his wife’s stubbornness and strives to keep his cool.” The movie was successful and Devgn was nominated for the Filmfare best actor award. After that, he appeared in Hindustan Ki Kasam with Amitabh Bachchan and Sonali Bendre. He then worked with the director Milan Luthria in Kachche Dhaage, with Saif Ali Khan and Manisha Koirala. The movie was a box-office hit. He then performed in the successful movie Hogi Pyaar Ki Jeet, a romantic comedy, and then in his home production movie with Kajol, and director, Prakash Jha. The film was titled Dil Kya Kare. His other movies in 1999 were Gair and Thakshak in which he played a strong, silent man.

Critical acclaim and awards success (2000–09)

In 2000, Devgn performed in Harry Baweja’s Deewane. The film did not do well at the box office. In the same year, Devgn starred in his first home production; Raju Chacha, with Kajol. The film was moderately successful.

In 2001, Devgn starred in another moderately successful film; Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke with Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta. His next release was Lajja, with Manisha Koirala, Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff, and Anil Kapoor. He was nominated for the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. However, the film was not popular with the public. Mahesh Manjrekar‘s Tera Mera Saath Rahen followed.

In 2002, Devgn performed in Ram Gopal Varma‘s fictional examination of the Mumbai underworld in the film Company. Devgn played a gangster named Malik. Both Company and Devgn’s performance received critical acclaim. As Taran Adarsh reviewed: “Ajay Devgn enacts his role to perfection. In a controlled performance, the actor takes to this complex character like a fish takes to water. He underplays his part with admirable ease.” Devgn was nominated for the Filmfare Best Actor Award and won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor. Devgn’s next release was David Dhawan‘s comedy Hum Kisise Kum Nahin, with Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, and Aishwarya Rai. The same year, he played the role of Bhagat Singh, in Rajkumar Santoshi‘s biopic The Legend of Bhagat Singh. His performance was well-received by critics. Taran Adarsh said, “Ajay Devgn has lived the role. To state that he is excellent would be an understatement. His performance is bound to win admiration from cine-goers, besides fetching awards.” The film was released on 7 June 2002 and went on to win two National Film Awards, including the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi, and three Filmfare Awards, including the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Movie. Despite these awards, and Devgn winning his second National Film Award for Best Actor for his performance, the film was not popular with the public. Devgn went on to perform in Anees Bazmee‘s Deewangee. The film was partially inspired by William Diehl’s novel, Primal Fear. The film earned Devgn several awards for his role including a Filmfare Best Villain Award, the Star Screen Award for Best Villain, and the Zee Cine Award for Best Actor in a Negative Role. The film was a success at the box office.

In 2008, Devgn also performed in Rohit Shetty‘s third film Sunday. He then took the lead role with Kajol in his own directorial debut film U Me Aur Hum. The film performed moderately well at the box office and earned positive critical reviews for his performance as well as for his direction. Rediff said: “His character grows, discovers both shirt buttons and subtlety, delivering an intense acting job. Speaking almost entirely in platitudes – pithy at first, profound as he goes on – this grows into an extraordinarily well-written character, replete with flaws and relatability. The way he treats his remorse, drunkenly pointing every finger at himself around a dinner table, is superbly handled, as is his guilty struggle to delineate his life experience from his professional opinion.” Devgn also made a cameo appearance in his brother Anil Devgan’s film Haal-e-Dil. He then starred in Afzal Khan’s Mehbooba.

Again in 2008, Devgn performed in Rohit Shetty’s comedy Golmaal Returns, a sequel to the 2006 film Golmaal: Fun Unlimited about a mistrustful wife who believed her husband was unfaithful. The Indian Express said the screenplay was derivative, concluding: “There is nothing particularly new about a suspicious wife keeping tabs on her husband, and there is nothing particularly new in the way Ajay-Kareena plays it.” Golmaal Returns was a financial success with global revenues of ₹79.25 crore (US$9.9 million).

In 2009, Devgn produced his third film, All the Best, directed by Rohit Shetty. It had some financial success. Next, Devgn starred in Vipul Shah‘s London Dreams, with Salman Khan and the Tamil film star Asin. The film was not popular with the public.

Commercial success (2010–present)

In the following decade, Devgn performed roles in Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai (2010), Golmaal 3 (2010), Raajneeti (2010), Singham (2011), Bol Bachchan (2012), Son of Sardaar (2012), Singham Returns (2014) and Drishyam (2015). In 2010, Devgn featured in the financially successful comedy Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? with Paresh Rawal and Konkona Sen Sharma. He then featured in Prakash Jha’s political thriller RaajneetiRaajneeti was released internationally on 4 June 2010, after some controversies regarding similarities between actual people and the characters in the film. There were also issues about the use of the national anthem in the film. The film was made with a budget of ₹60 crores (US$7.5 million) When the film was released, it had positive reviews and was financially successful. Again, in 2010, Devgn starred in Milan Luthria’s Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, which was among the top-grossing films of that year. Both the film and Devgn’s performance were well-received by the critics. Taran Adarsh said: “Ajay Devgn is splendid as Sultan. The actor had enacted a similar role in Company, but it must be said that his interpretation is so different in Once Upon A Time in Mumbai. He adds so much depth to the character, which only goes to prove his range and versatility. This is, without a trace of doubt, Ajay’s finest work so far.” Komal Nahta said: “Ajay Devgn is simply fantastic in the role of Sultan Mirza. So real is his performance that it looks like he was born to play this role. Right from his look to his acting including dialogue delivery, everything is fabulous. Indeed, an award-winning performance!”

In 2016, Devgn was seen in his own production, Shivaay, which was released around Diwali 2016. Shivaay is an action drama movie. Shivaay opened to mixed reviews and grossed more than ₹146 crores (US$18 million). In 2017, Devgn featured in director Milan Luthria’s Baadshaho and Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again. Both films were mild commercial successes. While Baadshaho was a hit, Golmaal Again became the highest-grossing film of 2017 collecting 100 crores in 4 days of its release and a lifetime collection of 205 crores at the Indian box office while making a hefty 300 crores at the worldwide box office.

In 2018, Devgn starred in Raj Kumar Gupta’s Raid where he plays the role of an honest Indian Revenue Service officer, which was released to positive critical feedback on 16 March, and was a commercial success. Devgn has long been working on producing Sons of Sardaar: The Battle of Saragari, a sequel to Son of Sardaar. In August 2017, Devgn stated: “We are working on the script but it won’t happen for another two years because of the scale of the project.” He starred in De De Pyaar De alongside Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh. In early 2020, Devgn portrayed the role of 17th-century military leader Tanaji Malusare in an eponymously titled film, Tanhaji; directed by Om Raut. The film was released on 10 January 2020 and went on to win three National Film Awards, including the Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment and Best Actor ‘Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior’ earned Rs 3.67 billion ($49 million) worldwide, making it the highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2020. Moreover, it marks Ajay Devgn’s 100th film as an actor.

In 2023, Ajay is set to star in the remake of Kaithi, titled Bholaa, which is his 4th directorial venture. Other projects for him in 2023 include the sports drama Maidaan and Neeraj Pandey‘s Auron Mein Kahan Dum Tha, which is currently filming.

With Singham Again, the much-awaited sequel to the smash-hit Singham Returns and Anees Bazmee’s Naam Ajay Devgn has already a packed schedule for 2024.
