Mumbai, April 25 (IANS) After the encouraging response to his directorial debut “U, Me Aur Hum”, Ajay Devgan is thinking of directing an action flick next. “I’ve two subjects ready and I may decide to do either one, depending on what I feel right. After a very serious subject, I may decide to do a lighter film,” Ajay told IANS.
“In fact, I’m seriously thinking of doing an actioner. If I do, it’d be very different from the stunts that we see in other films. But there definitely will be an undercurrent of a serious social message through the film for sure,” he added.
Life comes a full circle for Ajay since he started his acting career with an action film “Phool Aur Kante” 15 years ago. But the competition doesn’t bother him.
“I’ve always worked at my own pace. That’s going to change now. After ‘U, Me Aur Hum’, I can’t afford to be lazy. At the same time I’ve never bothered with what others do. Why should that change?”
However, Ajay isn’t willing to give up his comic connections.
“‘Golmaal Returns’ is much funnier than the first film and far more glossier,” said Ajay, who’s currently in Goa shooting for the last schedule of the comedy.
“After this we’ve just one song left and then we’re done,” said the actor, who gets together with Kareena Kapoor for the second time after “Omkara”.
The two films are world apart.
“You can say that again! But then you can’t be doing only serious cinema all the time. Audiences like watching light films. So I’ll continue being part of them.”
