He also worked with him on Suhaag (Ajay, Akshay Kumar, Karisma Kapoor), Haqeeqat (1995) (Ajay, Tabu) and Zulmi (Akshay, Twinkle Khanna).

By then, he had developed a good rapport with Ajay Devgan. After that he started working with Anees Bazmee on Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha (Ajay, Kajol), followed by Ajay[replacesinglequotehere]s home productions, Hindustan Ki Kasam and Raju Chacha .

Shetty directed his debut feature film, Zameen , as an independent director with Devgan in 2003 at the age of 30. Zameen was a flop at boxoffice.
