Controversies In the 90s, there were stories about the fight between Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor over him, as he was dating Raveena before Karisma. Following the break-up, Raveena revealed the stories of Ajay’s betrayal. On the other hand, Ajay clarified by saying that, “Tell that girl that she should go ahead and publish those letters, even I want to read the figment of her imagination! Our families have known each other for years; she used to come over to our place because she’s a friend of my sister Neelam. When she started behaving badly, we couldn’t throw her out, could we? I was never close to her. Ask her, if I’ve ever called her up or talked to her on my own. She’s just trying to get publicity by linking her name to mine.”

In 2009, Karan Ramsay (Producer) filed a copyright infringement case against him over the script of the film All The Best. After the legal battle, the case went in favour of Ramsay, but Ajay’s production house claimed that their film was an official remake of an English comedy play, Right Bed Wrong Husband.

After the trailer release of his film Son of Sardaar, the Human Rights activist Navkiran Singh filed a case against him and asked him to cut off the derogatory scenes and remarks that wrongly depicted the Sikhs. Following the heat, Ajay did the changes suggested by them.

Before the Diwali release of his film Son of Sardaar and Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Ajay filed a legal complaint against Yashraj Films claiming that they had manipulated distributors and exhibitors in getting more screens for their film.

After the trailer release of Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay, KRK gave a biased reviews in favor of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Following it, Ajay claimed that Karan Johar paid KRK for the trailer reviews.
