Both the debutantes of a hit film titled Phool Aur Kaante of the early 90s had one thing in common in store for them; they would be recognized very well in their consecutive films.
Madhu's portrayal in and as Roja will forever stay in viewers minds. And Ajay Devgan has reached superstardom with a series of well-enacted roles in some good films.
Though the Devgan boy shifted from doing dishum dishum stuff quite sometime back, the definite departure was noticed in Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha.
Son of ace fight-master Veeru Devgan, Ajay was exposed to films at a very early age. He accompanied his father on several occasions to film set-ups and shooting schedules. At his age, he must have been impressed by the stunts his father directed. So, when he grew up and entered films, Ajay did some hair-raising stunts in his films.
Being the son of a fight master and fond of performing stunts, Devgan's earlier films were more of the violent nature. The trend in his career changed with Ishq, a soft romantic comedy where he was paired opposite Kajol.
Soon, Ajay's potential as a romantic hero capable of delivering emotional performances was discovered and the actor did not mind the change. After a couple of films came Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Ajay became hot property.
