During the teaser launch of Bholaa, Tabu revealed that Ajay Devgn was a totally different person on the sets of Bholaa as a director. She shared her experience working with the actor, "While directing, he was not the Ajay Devgn, whom I've known for so many years. He was some other human being on the set as he sat on the director's chair,” Tabu shared.
On receiving any special treatment on sets considering the two share a long working history, the actress said: "Special treatment? He didn't even smile at me while working. He became so quiet, so focused, he's anyway quiet but he became all the more silent as he donned the director's hat."
Shedding light on Devgn's working style as a director, she said: "He himself is such a good actor and that trickles down to his briefing and instructions for his actors on set. And yes he flawlessly switched to an action director while briefing about the action."
The two have worked together in about 9 films including the blockbuster Drishyam franchise, and Bholaa is the first where Devgn is directing Tabu.
Bholaa also stars a powerful line-up of actors like Vineet Kumar, Deepak Dobriyal and Sanjay Mishra. The film releases in theatres on March 30.
