For the longest time, it was believed that Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn weren’t on good terms with each other. Considering the amazing bond that SRK and Ajay’s wife Kajol shares, people naturally assumed that the two actors would be close to each other. But this didn’t hold true for both these superstars. But over different episodes of Koffee With Karan through the years we understood that Ajay and SRK had no problems with each other. In fact, they weren’t friends but they were always cordial and warm to each other whenever they met. But in recent news, Ajay and SRK are touted to be more similar than one would’ve thought. Reportedly their work pattern is similar. But it’s not Kajol who said this, it’s director Rohit Shetty.

Recently at while talking at the International Film Festival Of India, he spoke about the work pattern of Shah Rukh and Ajay. Rohit has directed Ajay all throughout the Golmaal series and Singham series, while he’s worked with Shah on Chennai Express and Dilwale.

Talking about both the actors, he said:

Their working pattern is the same. Both are very hard working. I have never seen a day when Shah Rukh or Ranveer (Singh) or Ajay come on set and say that they are tired. You will see them sitting in one corner and rehearsing their lines. Where they are today is because of the sincerity towards their work, and because they never took for granted the notion that they are stars.

He also disclosed that despite having done so many films with Ajay and a few with SRK, if they have a long or dramatic or emotional scene coming up, you will see them rehearse with Rohit’s assistant director.

Rohit is currently working on Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
