Ajay Devgan Turned Down Raavan’s Role



Ajay Devgan Turned Down Raavan’s Role 12

Do we  sense  another  star-director friendship coming to an end?  Ajay Devgan and director Om  Raut have delivered Tanhaji the  only superhit  of 2020 .

It was  only expected that Devgan would feature as the  lead in Raut’s followup project. But  Raut’s next project  Adipurush features Prabhas in the  lead. Instead of  the male lead, it seems  Raut offered the antagonist’s role in Adipurush to Devgan.

 The  offer was politely declined by Devgan .

According to  sources, Devgan has taken a conscious  decision to  stay away from  negative  roles. 

The  antagonist’s role  in  Adipurush is now  being  essayed  by Saif Ali Khan who  played the  villain in Om Raut’s  Tanhaji as well. Saif says  he enjoys  antagonist’s role.  

“It’s always  interesting to dig into  thedark  side of your personality. I find negative roles  fun to do.”

Apparently Devgan  disagrees.  He  refused to play Raavan  and was  more keen  to  play  Rama in Om Raut’s  adaptation  of  the Ramayan in Adiprush. Interestingly  Devgan  was  offered  Rama’s role in  Raj Kumar Santoshi’sproposed  adaptation  of  the Ramayan  in 2007.

Like Santoshi’s numerous proposed project his Ramayan too never  took off. Ajay Devgan  was keen to play Rama  since  the  aborted Santoshi  project.  Alas, Om Raut  was  committed  to Prabhas  to  play  Rama.
