With a slate of action movies being made these days, it seems the 80-90's era, which was known for churning out best of the action flicks in Bollywood, has returned. And this is the order of the day what with bollywood's biggest of the stars turning to action. The latest one being Ajay Devgan who returns as action hero after a gap of 8 years with SINGHAM.
However actor Ajay Devgan confesses that audiences are the same it's our outlook which had changed.
"Audience hasn't changed. It was we who forgot that they always wanted this... We were trying to make different cinema and concentrating on class cinema than mass cinema. But when GHAJINI and WANTED came we realized that they still demand the same," says Ajay.
From the time promos hit the screens, Ajay Devgn's SINGHAM is touted to be another DABANGG and a lot of comparisons are being made with respect to action sequences and presenting style. However, Ajay makes it clear that there is no similarity between the two.
Says Ajay, "We have nothing to do with DABANGG. The only similarity is that both are wearing uniform. The story is same but whole screenplay is changed." Furthermore Ajay says that the action in SINGHAM is in a raw format though presented in stylized manner as compared to other action movies, "It's a very raw action presented into a stylized manner which has not happened earlier. Either it's a raw action or its stylized action which we have seen till date."
Talking about his role in SINGHAM, Ajay once again plays a cop. But this cop is pretty different from what he played all these years. Reveals Ajay, "The SINGHAM cop is more aggressive. If you compare with GANGAJAL cop, he stuck by the law, went by the book. He did not take law in his hands. Whereas this guy is more simple. He does what he feels right."
Directed by Rohit Shetty SINGHAM is all set to release on 22nd July 2011.
