TRIVIA

  • For his movie Shivaay, the actor had gone in search of locations to shoot in Bulgaria. He was grateful for the support that Bulgarian government showed to him and his team so he decided to promote the tourism of Bulgaria.
  • Ajay originally made his debut in 1991 with ‘Phool Aur Kaante’, but he was the first choice for the film ‘Karan Arjun’, where he would have played Salman’s role.
  • He was also the second choice for ‘Darr’, after Aamir Khan rejected the role. It ultimately went to Shahrukh Khan.
  • The actor has had his own share of romantic relationships. He was first in a relationship with Raveena Tandon but broke up with her when he fell in love with Karisma Kapoor.
  • Although the actor has won Filmfare awards quite a few times and has been nominated even more times, he has never gone to an award show, just like Aamir Khan. He believes that none of them are honest award shows, as they want to sell their shows to channels and promise them there will be big stars on the show.
  • The actor has given many award winning performances throughout his career, but he is one of the super talented actors who has also received the national award, not once, but twice! The first movie that he received the award for was Zakhm, and the second film was ‘The Legend Of Bhagat Singh’.
  • The actor was the first choice for Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. However, from money matters to dates issue, nothing worked out between the actor and the makers, and he was replaced by Ranveer Singh, who did a wonderful job.
