Ajay Devgn has a very important role in SS Rajamouli’s RRR.
Elaborating for the first time on why he needed Devgn, Rajamouli says, “Ajay Sir’s character is extremely important for the film. I needed an actor whose face and every word he utters oozes honesty and integrity. I needed an actor the whole country would believe in what he says or does. I think if I spell out the requirement and ask who is the best actor to play the role, 9 out of 10 people would say Ajay Devgn.”
High praise indeed from Rajamouli whose relations with Ajay and his wife Kajol go back a long way. Devgn and Rajamouli have been planning to collaborate for the last 8 years. In 2012 for the Hindi version of Rajamouli’s Eega the director met Ajay Devgn and Kajol and hit it off instantly. The star-couple readily did the voiceover for the Hindi version of Eega(Makkhi).

The director also agreed to direct a Hindi film for Devgan which Devgn would produce. But at that point of time Rajamouli was committed to doing a Telugu film with Prabhas. So he did Baahubali. But now it’s time to do a Hindi film with Ajay Devgan.
