Ajay Devgn to Become New Face of Andhra Pradesh Tourism

The state of Andhra Pradesh, which is on a massive drive to draw investments and build a new capital has now roped in Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn as its brand ambassador.

The actor met with Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu at the CM camp office in Vijayawada on Tuesday. His wife Kajol would reportedly be the co-promoter of the state.

According to The Times of India, Devgn said that he would also invest in developmental projects in the upcoming capital Amaravati. Naidu welcomed the actor’s offer.

Devgn is likely to invest in theme parks, resorts, water-based parks and also expressed willingness to set up an entertainment, media and creative city project in Amaravati.

Meanwhile, according to The Hindu, Ajay Devgn has praised the work of Naidu and said that the Chief Minister has done an admirable job.

I have been working in Hyderabad for the past 25 years and I’ve seen the city change and grow under his rule and the change was dramatic. With someone like him at the helm, this place and the surrounding areas are also ready for a change. There are some things we have spoken about. It’s too early to say anything about it now. I’ll talk about it on my next visit.
