An Indian film actor, director, and producer is named for Ajay Devgn who is widely considered as one of the most popular and influential actors of Hindi cinema, who has appeared in over a hundred Hindi films. Moreover, he has won numerous accolades, including two National Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards. He began his professional career with Phool Aur Kaante in 1991 and received a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut for his performance. Some of his notable works include Singham (2011), Bol Bachchan (2012), Son of Sardaar (2012), Singham Returns (2014), Drishyam (2015), Shivaay (2016), Golmaal Again (2017), Raid (2018), Total Dhamaal (2019), De De Pyaar De (2019) and more. In August 2009, Devgn changed the spelling of his surname Devgan to Devgn, at the request of his family. Kajol says Saif Ali Khan betrayed Ajay Devgn in Omkara and during Tanhaji promotions: ‘Hope u read this in Switzerland’. Kajol wrote on Twitter that Saif Ali Khan ‘betrayed’ her yet again after Vishal Bhardwaj’s Omkara, perhaps taking a stand for Ajay Devgn. With less than two weeks to go for the release of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Saif Ali Khan took a break from the promotions and jetted off to Switzerland to ring in the New Year with actor wife Kareena Kapoor Khan, son Taimur and sister-in-law Karisma Kapoor. The actor plays the antagonist Udaybhan Rathod in the historical drama. Kajol joked that she feels ‘betrayed’ that Saif ditched the promotions to enjoy a getaway with his family. Tweeting a picture of him and husband Ajay Devgn, she wrote, “You betrayed me in Omkara and now during promotions also... hope u read this in Switzerland #Saifalikhan.” It seems like Kajol was tweeting on her husband Ajay’s behalf about Saif’s betrayal in Omkara.
