Action-packed : Ajay Devgan

It’s been a long eight years since he last worked in an action movie, and Ajay is back to it with a completely drool-worthy body and the sophisticated khaki look.

He says, “It’s a film about men. Singham will mark the return of hardcore raw action to the cinemas with a lot of dialogue-baazi and machismo. It should sock a punch; it will connect to the man on the street because of its simple narrative and terrific action.”

Director Rohit Shetty is also gung-ho about this movie.

His jodi with Ajay has done wonders at the box office earlier with four back-to-back blockbusters, the Golmaal series and All The Best. Now the audiences have something new to watch out from this hard-hitting jodi. “My hero Bajirao Singham (Ajay) is a simple police officer who is happy to toe the line till he is provoked by baddie Prakash Raj to show his ferocious side. And when Ajay does that, hell breaks loose,” quips the stylish director.

This movie also marks the return of the raw desi action which Indian movies are known for. Rohit Shetty adds, “I have not used a single foreign fighter or imported any foreign equipment for my film.

I personally feel indigenous action has a better impact than all the foreign stunts that people are obsessed about these days. As Indians, we identify with our style of raw action, which we have sidelined because some of us have suddenly developed an affinity to the West. To each his own, but for me what works is our own ‘desi’ action.’’

Singham also stars Southern beauty Kajal Aggarwal as the romantic lead opposite Ajay and is slated for release on July 22.
