If you had to make a list of friendships in Bollywood that have stood the test of time, the band of Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn would be at the top of the list. Friends before the two made their mark as two of the country’s greatest entertainers, Rohit and Ajay have also managed to turn their personal bond into a very fruitful professional relationship. So when Ajay Devgn won his third National Award for Best Actor at the 68th National Awards on Friday, Rohit dropped a very special message for his friend. Rohit shared a photo of the two hugging, saying: “Zakhm. The Legend of Bhagat Singh. And now Tanhajic. Three national awards. A man. Ajay Devgn.” He also added a happy emoji to the Instagram Stories post.
Rohit Shetty’s love for Ajay Devgn can be clearly seen on his Instagram timeline. Earlier, on the occasion of Ajay’s birthday, Rohit shared a video with Ajay Devgn, saying: “Congratulations to the man who has been my support system for the past 30 years, from cinema to life. Thank you for always standing behind me and being you.”
Meanwhile, Rohit Shetty wasn’t the only one wishing for Ajay Devgn. Ajay’s wife, actress Kajol – who was also part of Tanhajic – shared a post with a behind-the-scenes image of Ajay and her on set. In the caption, she said, “Team Tanhajic wins 3 national prizes. So happy and proud! Best Actor Ajay Devgn. Best popular movie with wholesome entertainment – Om Raut. Best costume – Nachiket Barve.”
Ajay Devgn shares his National Award for Best Actor with actor Suriya. Suriya won the prize for his performance in Soorarai Pottru.
