Heres why RGV doesnt want to work with Ajay Devgan 

Ram Gopal Varma's filmography has a polarity in terms of quality but that doesn't take away from the fact that he's a brilliant filmmaker. During early 2000s he collaborated with Ajay Devgan to deliver films like 'Company' and 'Bhoot' but the duo hasn't teamed up lately. RGV seems to have very clear difference between stars and actors. His films are usually grounded in reality and don't have much space for stars pleasing their fans. RGV believes that 'Singham' has propelled Ajay to stardom and he is no longer suitable for his films.

He said, "When I had made Company, Ajay Devgn was not a big star so it worked, but after Singham and all those films, if you put Ajay Devgn into such a subdued role like Company, I don’t think it’d ever work. So, I take that into consideration, especially for genre films. Of course, you might get a bigger audience with stars, but that’d be at the expense of not being honest to the film.”

Taking this in reference with his recent film 'D Company', RGV added, “When casting, the most important thing one needs to keep in mind is the believability of the character. Dawood Ibrahim was a man who at the age of 25 was almost like behind his brother, he never, upfront, pushed himself. So, I have to keep that emotion in mind while looking at these factors during the casting process. Now, though he’s not 25, Ajay Devgn for me as an actor may be so powerful that to underplay this character would look very stupid in the film because the audience would want to see his very first shot with excitement — that’s the image he’s developed over the years, that’s what is called a star.”
