What Ajay Devgn wants, he gets. In this case, a suite at the Hotel Intercontinental The Lalit on Palolem beach, Goa.
For comfort's sake
The actor was put up in that particular room through the shoots for the earlier Golmaals, his home production All The Best and continues taking up residence there, while his Golmaal 3 schedule is on.
Says a source close to the actor, "Ajay feels comfort is essential for an artiste to perform well. To him, the hotel rooms he stays in, while shooting in India or abroad, have to feel like home - spacious, stylish and comfortable. While shooting in Hyderabad, he stays at a particular suite; when in Goa, he stays at the Presidential Suite at the Palolem beach hotel."
Mera wala kamraa
The source adds that Ajay's staff books the suite months in advance and if an earlier booking has been made, it is changed discreetly to suit Ajay's staying specifications. "It has almost become the 'Ajay Devgn Suite'. It is very close to the gym and swimming pool. It has two big rooms, a big hall and two seating areas, which includes a dining room. He has also installed his own LCD screen in the room -- so he can watch TV with friends and family in comfort."
"When Ajay's family comes to Goa, they stay in the suite. It is the biggest suite in the hotel and Ajay always insists on it. He even has the hotel chef coming to him to take his order. Often, the chef whips up some exotic dish as per the actor's specifications."
In fact, Devgn is so fond of his suite that he refuses to leave it despite 'ghostly' rumours. "Once Golmaal director Rohit Shetty and the unit tried to play a prank on the actor saying the suite was haunted and created an elaborate tale around it. He didn't fall for it and refused to leave the room."
