Rajkumar Santoshi’s next film Ashoka starring Ajay Devgan will have Bipasha Basu starring opposite him as Kaurwaki. Santoshi said, “We will begin shooting Ashoka at the end of February. It’s an historical film. Bipasha is paired with Ajay who plays the title role.”
About Ajay, Santoshi added, “He is a dark skin person. He has sharp, expressive eyes and can play any character very comfortably. He appears to be very natural in all characters he has played so far.”
Though there was a previous version of Asoka starring SRK, Santoshi says, “That shows my confidence in the subject. In spite of one Asoka having come and gone, I am still coming up with another one. I may have something different to be confident about. Despite knowing the Asoka was made earlier I thought of making it again. Sivan’s story ends at Kalinga, but my story starts at Kalinga.”
We look forward to seeing this new version of Ashoka when it comes to theaters next year.
