Action star Ajay Devgn is swimming against the tide that was generated by the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and even Aamir Khan to an extent.

When asked about the reason why he lost almost 17 kilos for the film ‘Action Jackson’, Ajay Devgn responded by saying that that was on the order of the director Prabhudeva.

He went on to add masala to the simple statement: “Prabhudeva wanted me to look different from the way I looked in ‘Singham Returns’. All physical transformations are difficult if you have to start from scratch, but if you have a decent body and a role comes along, it takes a month or so to tone up completely. Although, I don’t have six packs, my body is lean and well toned. Six pack abs are not very good healthwise. I would not want to promote six packs because, physically, it makes you very weak. It took me a little time to prepare for the role because I had to train in sword fighting, something I had not done in a long time.”
