Ajay Devgn, the Bollywood heartthrob of the 90s turned 50 today. Right from where he started in 1991 with Phool Aur Kaante opposite Madhoo and Aruna Irani has not just seen astounding growth in his box office numbers but also have gone through a complete makeover, shedding his lover boy image to a total macho action hero and the king of comedy now.
We tried to map his throwback looks from the early days of his career. Walking down the memory lane here are pictures from his early days when he aced the long lustrous hair streaks or cumbersome spectacles for an intense look with ease.
