After a wait of almost an hour, actors Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor Khan showed up for the press conference of Rohit Shetty’s Singham Returns, which is scheduled for an Independence Day release.

On a tour of major cities to promote the action-packed comedy, the two readily answered queries related to movies. Devgn, who plays the lead, says  Singham Returns is an out-and-out action film where it is Kareena who packs in the comedy – she will also be seen driving an autorickshaw in the movie.

When asked how much she trained to drive the auto, Kareena said, “It was impromptu and I don’t think one needs to train to drive an auto if he/she knows to drive.”

What about all the slang she used?

“It is all in a lighter vein and this isn’t the first time slang is being used on screen,” she replied with a smile.

She said she had agreed to do Singham… after refusing other offers “because director Rohit Shetty gave me a substantial role even though Ajay Devgn plays the title role.”  The movie was mostly shot at the Ramoji Film City and the two actors said it was a pleasant experience coming over to the ‘familiar city’.

Ajay said Kareena was a wonderful co-worker and the chemistry was better because they had worked together on earlier occasions. Both agreed that a lot of scripts for Bollywood movies were being borrowed from the South and added, “If the storyline is relevant and the script is good, there is no harm in sharing.”
