Kajol, Ajay Devgn“>
Just after the London shoot of Tezz that concluded a few weeks back, Ajay Devgn had sneaked out to Singapore for a quick holiday with Kajol, daughter Nysa and son Yug. Though he had to back in the B-town soon enough to promote Singham, he is already making plans to wrap up the unfinished business. He has promised his family that come October and he would be definitely taking a much longer holiday with them this time around.
“Ajay has promised Kajol and his daughter that he has something big planned for them this October”, informs a close family friend. “Even though Singham is a huge success, he isn’t taking any break yet as he has to begin Bol Bachchan soon. Once he wraps up a major schedule of this comedy, he would be busy with the promotion of Rascals which is a Dusshehra release. However soon after Rascals, he would take off for a holiday to some exotic place. Plans are already being put together. Though Yug is still too small to understand what’s happening around him, Nysa is pretty excited to be making plans with her mom on this.”
This is pretty much a welcome break for Ajay Devgn who, after Salman Khan, has been the most prolific at the box office for last couple of years. Last year he had six releases and this year too he has been busy with four films – Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, Singham, Rascals and Tezz. Even months to come aren’t going to be easy either since he has Bol Bachchan, Son of Sardar and Vishal Bhardwaj’s next – a comedy – lined up.
“Kajol understands his work commitments but Ajay too has always been quite conscious about taking interim breaks with his family”, says a source, “He has always been doing 3-4 films a year at an average and it is unlikely that this trend would change. However he makes it a point to plan interim breaks in between. A few of these may be quick getaways like the one that happened to Singapore early this month. However, a couple of elaborate holidays per year are always on his radar.”
Ajay, who is riding high on Singham finding a place in one of the Top-10 best openings of all time, confirms that he has marked the month of October in his diary for holidays. “I do that every year actually but this time around I really feel like taking a good break. Singham was a strenuous experience as it was announced, shot, completed and released – all in a record time of 132 days. It was physically challenging too.”
Sure Ajay, go ahead, have fun. Sometimes ‘lions’ need to take rest as well!
