Here’s some news! Ajay Devgn is back in the director’s chair for a new film starring Tabu. Of course, he has many milestones as an actor (including two National Awards), but it seems to direct is also his calling.
Devgn has shown that being a director is in his DNA with his first three films, from U, Me Aur Hum to Runway 34. His direction, specifically, was noted on Runway 34 and got high praise from all quarters, including the audience and media. In fact, the film has been invited by two reputed educational institutions with young minds wishing to study Runway 34 both for content and technique.
Now, in a surprise announcement, we have learned that Devgn is currently directing the high-octane, strongly-emotional drama Bholaa starring Tabu and himself in the lead.
So he wields the megaphone yet again, and without much ado, he is set to finish principal photography on Bholaa by August 20.
Asked how he managed to shoot the film so quickly post the release of his April release Runway 34, Devgn smiles mysteriously and says, “Well, the preparation was done earlier on. It was just a question of getting behind the camera again and saying the three magic words-Lights, camera, action!”.
We somehow get the impression and hope that Devgn will continue to direct films.
Bholaa is set for a theatrical release on 30th March 2023.
