Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn claims to be happy for his arch rival Shah Rukh Khan for the success of his latest film "Chennai Express", which is steadily breaking all box office records.

The long-standing rivalry between Shah Rukh and Ajay is a known fact to everyone in the industry. Their rivalry was recently made obvious when the two actors clashed at box office with their films "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" and "Son of Sardar". it took a nasty turn after Ajay filed a case against Yash Raj Films for booking most of the screens for "Jab Tak Hai Jaan".

However, it seems like Ajay has moved on and set his differences aside. When asked to comment on Shah Rukh's "Chennai Express", the "Singham" actor said, "I have not seen it but I have heard that it has done well. I am happy that it's doing very well."

Reacting to the latest rumours that his next project "Singham 2" would clash with Akshay Kumar's "Gabbar" at the box office next year on Independence day, Ajay said, "We are thinking about it (release on Independence Day). Let's see what happens as we are yet to begin shooting. I would like to clarify that there is no clash with anyone of us. I would want no two films to get released together so that nobody suffers as this is one industry," Press Trust of India reported.

Ajay is currently promoting Prakash Jha's multistarrer political thriller "Satyagraha". Apart from him, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchann, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor and Manoj Bajpay in lead roles. The film, which is said to be based on Anna Hazzare's 2011 anti-corruption movement, is set to hit screens 30 August.
