Ajay Singh Chaudhary is one more TV star who is making the leap into Bollywood. This cute good looking guy who impressed everybody with his multiple disguises in Kumkum and is currently seen in Palampur Express is awaiting the release of his debut film, Let's Dance. "I play a hotelier and the love interest of the lead girl, Gayatri Patel( Suhani) who wants to help some street kids become dancers. My character Neel stands besides Suhani through thick and thin".
He does not think that Let's Dance is a wrong film to debut given that it's a small film with no major stars. "We will rock as we have a cute story, which will attract audiences. And remember the dances (Latin Hip-Hop) are out of the world. I don't think only big budget films are good for a start, what matters is a good film".
Besides Let's Dance, this dude from Meerut also has one more film Aamras' coming up for release in the next 2/3 months. This beautiful film directed by Rupali Guha( Basu Chatterjee's daughter )is about friendship, relationships and emotions. "I play a Raja Hindustani type guide in Panchgani, who falls in love with a tourist". The twist in the tale is that unlike the above Aamir Khan film, not one but four girls enter the guy's life and how he finally chooses one".
Ajay is quite clear in his mind that if the above films click and he gets better offers, he might quit TV. "I have already told the makers of Palampur Express about the same. I have no issues doing both the mediums, but if time is a constraint, I will then stick to cinema".
Coming to Palamapur Express, he admits that the Sony show is not doing well. "But times are changing. Earlier Saas Bahu and beti shows would get high ratings, now where are they? We are hopeful that our different show based on the life of sprint queen P.T. Usha's life will pick up soon. "My character Dhruv is a good guy who is quite normal despite being loaded." Ajay also no qualms playing second fiddle to the lead girl. "I am not insecure; I only need a good role. Even if you remember my debut show, Love Story, I was not the lead, yet my character which was similar to Saif in Omkara was liked big time".
His other shows were Sujata and Champs on Bindaas. "The latter was a mistake. The channel and creatives botched up the concept which was about a guy who wants to become a super biker. Because of the above show, I also had to leave Sujata, where I had a popular character", he ends.
