Ajay Devgan

Ajay Devgn (formerly: Devgan) (Hindi: अजय देवगन, Ajay Devgn; Urdu: وِشال دیوگن * April 2, 1967 in Mumbai, Maharashtra; real name: Vishal Devgan) is an Indian film actor.

His family is originally from the Punjab. His father Vishal Devgan is a well-known producer in India. His cousin Anil Devgan is a director in Bollywood.

Devgan attended Silver Beach High School at Juhu and Mithibai College.

He made his debut in Phool Aur knew, alongside Amrish Puri. He won the Filmfare Award / Best Debut for the role. Ajay received his first National Award for the film Zakhm, although the film was rather poor in the box office. Devgn was best known for his action timing and for never allowing himself to be doubled. So he mainly played in this genre and couldn't become the great romantic hero. It wasn't until the 1997 comedy Ishq that he managed to change his image and viewers accepted him as a romantic hero.

He has been married to actress Kajol since February 24, 1999, whom he met on the set of the film Hulchul. Together they have acted in 8 films to date. You have two children. Their daughter Nysa was born on April 20, 2003 and they had son Yug on September 13, 2010.

In 2005 he appeared on the television show Kaun Banega Crorepati (the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?) As a celebrity with his wife Kajol. They donated the money they won to a hospital in Chennai.

Ajay has also worked as a director since 2008. He made his directorial debut with the film U, Me Aur Hum at the side of Kajol.

Ajay Devgn changed his name in 2009 at the request of his mother. This is nothing new in India as it promises better luck. Apparently that worked for Ajay Devgn. He released 5 films in 2010, 4 of which were very successful. That alone would be remarkable, but Devgn played in a different genre in each of these films, which makes him one of the most recognized actors today.
