Vishal Veeru Devgan was born on the 2nd of April 1969 in New Delhi, India to parents Veeru and Veena Devgan. He was raised alongside his sisters Neelam and Kavita Devgan. Ajay attended the Silver Beach HighSchool and on graduating joined Mithibai College.
Despite being born into a family with immense connections within the Bollywood scene, Ajay’s parents shielded him from the pressure of becoming a child actor and allowed him to find his path into the industry on his own.
Ajay made his acting debut in 1991 with the film ‘Phool Aur Kante.’ Wanting to stand out amongst other upcoming actors who shared his name Vishal, he adopted the stage name, Ajay. Fortunately, his entry into the Bollywood scene was well received and he was awarded the ‘Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut.’ The success of his first film opened him up to an even bigger opportunity to star alongside Karisma Kapoor in the film ‘Jigar.’ The film was largely successful and ranked as the seventh highest-grossing film of 1992.
Ajay proceeded to appear in ‘Dil Hai Beetab,’ ‘Dilwale,’ ‘Zakhm, ‘and ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.’ By 1999, Ajay had developed his act and established himself as a household name with numerous critics praising his portrayals. Unfortunately, the audience’s enthusiasm to see a film after film starring Ajay died down and his films began tanking in the ratings. Ajay managed to turn his fate around despite the once in a while less successful films that failed to make news on debuting.
Ajay has since appeared in over a hundred films and been awarded numerously for his work on screen. All his time working on set sparked Ajay’s interest in all things film production and he launched Ajay Devgn FFilms. The film company is credited with producing numerous films starring the actor. Throughout his career, Ajay has attained legendary status within the industry and continues to dazzle fans with new productions now and again with several films on the lineup for release in 2022.
In 2009 at the request of his family, Ajay changed his name from Devgan to Devgn officially acquiring the stage name Ajay Devgn.
In an attempt to stay innovative and on top of the film industry, Ajay launched a visual effects company and won an award for his work in a film the year later. It may be safe to say that Ajay’s long-running career and impressive net worth are a result of his ability to think ahead.
Ajay dated fellow actress Karisma Kapoor whom he met when they worked together on the film ‘Jigar.’ The two eventually broke up in 1995 and Ajay moved on with Kajol. Despite speculations that the relationship would quickly fizzle out, the pair tied the knot in December of 2019. They have been blessed with two children and the spark remains alight more than 20 years later.
Although Ajay and Kapoor are blessed with healthy children, they reportedly requested the storage of their second child’s umbilical cord in case of serious ailments requiring stem cells harvesting. Hopefully, they are not met with a situation that requires the treatment.
Ajay is active on social media with 7.9 million Instagram followers.
