Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn, who has been regular in Prakash Jha films, will not feature in his next directorial venture AARAKSHAN. Earlier it was touted that Ajay would also star in the film but now actor Saif Ali Khan has replaced Prakash Jha's blue-eyed boy Ajay Devgn.

When asked to Prakash Jha what transpire him to cast Saif Ali Khan over Ajay to which Jha forthrightly replied, "Ajay wasn't required in this film. There was no role for him here."

Also, one is eager to know whether Jha cast Saif after considering his praiseworthy portrayal of 'Langda Tyagi' in Vishal Bhardwaj's film OMKARA. However, Jha has a different story to tell about Saif. He is all praise about the actor.

"Saif has the most versatile face in the industry. He can befit any given role. He is blessed with such a face, who can easily play a common man, a loverboy, a conman, a cruel person, etc. He can portray range of characters," says the no-nonsense filmmaker.

Based on policies of caste based reservations in government jobs and educational institutions, AARAKSHAN also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Prateik Babbar and Manoj Bajpayee and will go on floors by January 15.
