Thus, he mentioned that due to lack of dates he opted out from the project. 

Ajay also tried to clarify the rumours that suggested that he didn’t do Indian 2 due to a negative role. Ajay said, “For an artiste, there are no shades of grey, black or white - the more layers you have in a role, the better it is. I loved doing movies like Khakee (2004) and Company (2002) where my negative characters were appreciated. I would love to play such roles again. I cannot say if it was grey or not because I am not doing it now; it's somebody else's role."
