Rohit Shetty added comedy to my repertoire: Ajay

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn, who is known more for his serious roles, credits director-cum-friend Rohit Shetty for adding a new dimension to his career as far as comedy is concerned.

"As far as comedy is concerned, Rohit has definitely given a new dimension to my career," Ajay told reporters.

"I am very comfortable with him and he is someone I really trust. We have a lot of faith in each other," he added.

The duo have delivered three comic flicks together -- `All The Best`, which Devgn produced, `Golmaal` and `Golmaal Returns`. They also worked in `Sunday` and `Zameen`.

The Devgn-Shetty combination will be next seen in `Golmaal 3`, the third film in the Golmaal series which is scheduled for a Diwali release.

The 40-year-old Ajay, who is basking in the success of his latest political drama `Raajneeti`, said, he was looking forward to `Golmaal 3`.

"`Golmaal` has almost become a brand now. It feels great to know that the audiences thoroughly enjoyed...loved the first two films its characters and all," he said.

"I think Golmaal 3 is much bigger and better than both of the earlier films combined together. The characters are much funnier this time around," he added.

`Golmaal 3` will see Ajay Devgn, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Khemu, Kareena Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty and Ratna Pathak Shah in principal roles.
