R Madhavan heaps praise on Ajay Devgn

As per PTI, when asked if Devgn and Madhavan thought about swapping their roles in Shaitaan, Devgn said he wasn't keen to play the negative role as he connected the most with the emotions of a helpless father in the movie.

 

"When we started shooting, the first thing Maddy (Madhavan) told me was - 'Why aren't you doing this role, why have you given it to me?'. I told him, 'I really feel for the character of the father, so I will not be able to do justice to the other character. It's a stronger character though," the actor said.

Madhavan called Devgn a 'sherdil' (braveheart) and 'Singham' of the industry for being kind enough to pass on the meaty role in Shaitaan. "I can really hope and pray that I could do justice to the kindness that has been shown to me by Ajay sir and his team, I'm very thankful," he said.
