In Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan holds the record for the maximum number of cameos, special appearances and voiceovers that he has done for various films.
Superstars like Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have done their share too.
Ajay Devgn seems to be setting a new record in fleeting cameos and extended special appearances.
Joginder Tuteja takes a look at Mr Devgn's brief movie parts.
Ajay reportedly has a powerful part to play in Gangubai Kathiawadi.
It's a special appearance, but quite relevant to the plot as it takes the narrative forward.
Ajay has a unique rapport with his Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, so this should be truly special.
The promos of S S Rajamouli's magnum opus indicates that Ajay has a powerful appearance in the film, which stars NTR Jr and Ram Charan in the lead roles.
Interestingly, Alia has a special appearance too.
Though Akshay Kumar led the show in Sooryavanshi, and since Rohit Shetty was putting together a cop universe, the director's muse aka Ajay Devgn was seen in a lengthier role than what one expects from a special appearance.
Fitoor starred Katrina Kaif, Aditya Roy Kapur, Tabu and Irrfan Khan.
Ajay had a minor role, so small that one may not even remember it in this forgettable film.

Imagine a dead man resurrecting as a car and taking on the villains!

Quite a few actors had cameos in the film: Ajay, Jackie Shroff, Shakti Kapoor and Ranjeet.
None of them could salvage the film.
Guest Iin London
After leading Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge to a successful box office fate, Ajay had a cameo in its sequel, which was produced by his business partner Kumar Mangat.
Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Kharbanda starred in the film along with Paresh Rawal.
But Guest Iin London didn't work well at the box office.
Ajay produced a Marathi film, Aapla Manus, a suspense drama starring Nana Patekar.
A well made film which turned out to be a good commercial success, it featured Ajay in a minor part towards the end.
