Don't let the world's expectations turn into your inhibitions: Ajay Devgn pens a letter to his 20-year-old self about brutal rejections and failures


Every year, Swami Vivekanand’s jayanti (birth anniversary) is celebrated as National Youth Day across the country. On this occasion, Ajay Devgn walked down memory lane and penned a letter to his '20-year-old' self. Remembering all the rejections that he faced before making a mark in the industry, the superstar motivated his young fans and aspiring actors to never give up. 

In a note on Instagram, he wrote, "Dear 20-year-old me, There you are making your mark in this new world as an actor. Let me be honest, you are going to face some brutal rejections. Shy and unconventional, you will try your hardest to fit in but fail spectacularly! People's criticism and doubts will be hard, it'll make you question your dreams. You will fail more than you will succeed."

He added, "But, spoiler alert, it's all going to be worth it... because one day slowly but surely, you'll realize, being yourself can be your greatest strength. So, stumble a little but don’t stop. Keep pushing the boundaries and don't let the world's expectations turn into your inhibitions. "Always be true, always be you!" P.S. Learn how to dance it'll help you in the long run. Love, An older, wiser & better looking you."
