The 49-year-old actor said comedians rule the entertainment business across the globe. "I don't know why they say it is brainless. It is not easy to make people laugh. Today in our country or all over the world, comedians are the biggest stars. Like here in India, we have Kapil Sharma. It needs intelligence to make people laugh, you just can't make faces and make people laugh," Ajay told PTI.

"Who doesn't want to laugh? Also, comedy films you can watch again and again. I don't mean that other (kind) of cinema is not great but this is also good," he added Ajay is the new addition to Indra Kumar's "Dhamaal" franchise, which was earlier headlined by Sanjay Dutt.
