Sharing his experience of working with Ajay Devgn, Rudranil Ghosh, who makes his Bollywood debut in Maidaan said, “Ajay sir is a very cool person and an experienced actor. He is flexible while rehearsing or acting. But before and after that, he prefers to be all by himself. He does not talk much but has a pleasant personality and is very cooperative.”
Rudranil added: “He (Ajay Devgn) was my schooltime hero from the days of ‘Phool Aur Kaante‘. I became a fan of Ajay sir after watching that iconic scene of him standing on two bikes. He has changed the definition of a Bollywood hero from the typical glamorous actor to someone who looks like the common man.”
