Bollywood star Ajay Devgn has walked out of Prakash Jha's much talked about film Aarakshan, says a media report.
Apparently Ajay was not very happy with his role in the film coupled with multiple projects on his hands; he has decided to opt out. The film starring Amitabh Bachchan, Manoj Bajpai and Deepika Padukone is now in a fix as it goes on the floors in January.
A source said, ‘Aarakshan is Prakash Jha's most ambitious project till date. It is also a difficult film to make. Ajay was not very happy with the way his role had shaped up after the final draft and he told Prakash Jha that he would not like to be a part of the film. Jha, being a friend of Ajay's, understood his point of view and they both decided that they would work on some other film in the future. Ajay himself is on a high as after Golmaal 3 and four back-to-back hits, and he has many offers from the industry.”
The source added, “In the recent past too, there were many rumours that there were issues between the two over Ajay's role in Rajneeti as Ajay was not happy. However this time Ajay didn't want to take any chances and he opted out of the film.”
Ajay Devgn was shooting in London for Tez and remained unavailable for comment.
Prakash Jha said, “It is just a rumour and don't believe it. I just spoke to him about the dates and Ajay is very much a part of the film.”
