Tabu says she is ‘single’ because of Ajay Devgn

Written by Shruti Misra

The Ruk Ruk girl of yesteryear Tabu says the reason why she is single today is that of Ajay Devgn, her first filmy hero.

In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Tabu talked about working with Ajay again and how he is the one to be blamed for keeping all the men away from her. Tabu said, ” Ajay and I have known each other for 25 years. He was my cousin Sameer Arya’s neighbour and close buddy, a part of my growing up years and that has laid foundation of our relationship. When I was young, Sameer and Ajay would spy on me, follow me around and threaten to beat up any boys who are caught talking to me. They were the big bullies and if I am single today, it is because of Ajay. I hope he repents and regrets what he did.”

Tabu joked about Devgn being assigned with the task of finding a suitable boy for her. She said, ” I told him the other day to please find a boy to marry. But jokes aside, our relationship has grown because we have worked so much with each other. From among the male actors, if there is anyone I can count on, it’s Ajay. He is like a child and yet so protective. The atmosphere on sets when he’s around is stress-free. We share a unique and an unconditional affection.”

Tabu and Ajay Devgn will feature in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming comedy Golmaal 4.

In the last few years, Tabu has given exceptional and dramatic performances in films like Haider, Fitoor and Drishyam. Of her return to the comedy genre, Tabu told Mumbai Mirror: “I’ve wanted to do a light-hearted film for a long time, more so because my mother was fed up of me doing rona-dhona roles. A lot of people too have been saying that they wanted to see me in a comedy like Biwi No 1 and Hera Pheri.”
