Actor Pawan Shankar was recently seen playing the antagonist in Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Bhuj: The Pride Of India’. The film started streaming on Disney+Hostar on August 13.
After the film’s release, we got in touch with actor Pawan Shankar to know about his experience of working in the film. Appreciating Ajay Devgn, he said, “I have always been a fan of his work, but when I got to work with him, I began to respect him even more. He is a very humble person. I realised that he isn’t just a good actor but a great human being.”
Pawan Shankar feels that Ajay Devgn is the only actor who has never seen a downfall in his career and has been able to maintain his exclusivity in the age of social media. The actor said, “Ajay Devgn Sir has a huge fan following. I am also his big fan, and not only of his acting but his personality as well. Ajay Devgn has kept himself exclusive. Earlier, stars like Dilip Kumar had a crazy fan following and people used to go crazy to get one glimpse of him. But in today’s time, every one of us is presenting ourselves and making ourselves available all the time via social media that there’s no more craze amongst fans now. Amitabh Bachchan’s craze has also died down if we compare it to the 90s. But Ajay Devgn is one such actor who has maintained his exclusivity. He is not very active on social media. And that’s the reason why he is able to play such long innings at a constant rate. We have never seen a downfall in his career. He is one of the most stable and accountable actors.”
Pawan Shankar plays the role of Omani, a Pakistani ISI chief who plans to destroy the runway of Bhuj.
