After the release of Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, the actor was upset with the director, as he felt that what was narrated and what had appeared on the screen were totally different. The actor felt that Ramu had paid more attention to his heroine Nisha (now Priyanka) Kothari and had sidelined his character.
The frosty relationship between Ramu and Ajay was further exacerbated due to certain misunderstandings created by Ajay's business manager Kumar Mangat Pathak.
Over the years, Ramu attempted to patch things up many times. He offered to meet up with Ajay over dinner a few times, but the actor backed out every time at the last moment. After some time, the director gave up trying to mend bridges.
Recently, they came face-to-face in Kadaikudi. This was the first informal meeting they had in two years. Ramu had dropped in to meet Surya (who is shooting with Ajay) to discuss dates for his next film Rakta Charitra.
Initially there was awkwardness between Ramu and Ajay but as the day progressed, they were back to their old equation. When Ramu asked Ajay why he hadn't kept in touch, he brushed it off saying he'd been busy shooting his home production and other films.
The source adds, "Now Ramu is keen to do a film with Ajay, who has promised to read his script after returning to Mumbai. After giving hits like Company and Bhoot, Aag ruined things for this hit actor-director jodi. But now they are back together and planning something big."
Ram Gopal Varma and Ajay Devgan remained unavailable for comment.
