'Who better than Ajay for the role of Vijay Karnik'
Talking about taking Ajay on board for Bhuj: The Pride Of India, Bhushan said that he is a perfect choice for the role.
"Who better than Ajay Devgn for the role of Vijay Karnik? We are working with him currently in De De Pyaar De and Taanaji, and we are glad that he is on board for this film, too," he was quoted saying.
I could only see Ajay playing my role: Karnik
Not only Bhushan, but Karnik is also elated to have Ajay aboard.
"I could only see Ajay Devgn essaying my character," Karnik said.
Recalling those days, he added, "We were fighting a war. If there had been any casualties of any of these women, it'd have been a great loss. I had briefed them where they could take shelter if attacked. They followed it."
