Zee Bollywood celebrates 30 years of Ajay Devgn and his iconic film Phool Aur Kaante

Nov 19, 2021
“Agar tere paas Jaagir hai, toh mere paas jigar hai” said Ajay Devgn and became the OG 101% asli hero of the industry. And this Monday, it is a double dhamaka on Zee Bollywood as the channel celebrates 30 years of the epitome of brawn and talent that is Ajay Devgn and the iconic debut film, Phool Aur Kaante. Not only did the film introduce Ajay Devgn to the industry, his entry on 2 bikes became an instant sensation! From innocent college romance, superhit songs to 101% shuddh Bollywood rivalry, Phool Aur Kaante instantly became the talk of the town. Let's go back 30 years, celebrate Ajay Devgn, and get our dose of nostalgia with the special showcase of Phool Aur Kaante on Zee Bollywood on 22nd November at 5:45 pm.

Debuted as a young, fresh and charming college lad, Ajay Devgn in Phool Aur Kaante carried a mysterious yet mischievous persona that created intrigue in the audience. Known for his intense role, he has time and again surprised the audience with his range in acting – be it his infectious comic timing or his action stunts. He has happily navigated genres and beaten clichés in his three-decade career.

Reminiscing the old days, Ajay Devgn said, “Celebrating 30 years to Phool aur Kaante is special. This film marked my debut in the Indian movie industry. I didn't think a stunt scene; the one that had me coming astride two motorcycles; would become such a defining moment in my career. I still remember the thrill I felt when I performed that split on those moving bikes. My father, Veeru Devgan directed that shot and there was no intervention from stunt doubles. That apart, Hindi cinema has widened its horizons and I am fortunate to be a part of this ever-evolving industry. It feels surreal and emotional to revisit Phool Aur Kaante yet again with Zee Bollywood's special showcase of the film at the 30-year mark.”

Phool aur Kaante is an evergreen story about Ajay, son of a criminal leader, who builds a happy family life away from the world of crime. He lives a picture-perfect life until the past finally catches up. Ajay's own father kidnaps his son and forces him to take over his crime empire. The age-old rivalry takes over the story and delivers a much promised 101% shuddh Bollywood drama.

Celebrate 101% shuddh 30 saal of Ajay Devgn and his action-packed film Phool aur Kaante with Zee Bollywood on 22nd November
