Here’s some exciting director and casting scoop!
Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn, who have starred together in such epics as Major Sahab, Khakee and Satyagraha, are all set to reunite for a special film. The two cinema-veterans will join hands for a thrilling, absolute edge-of-the-seat human-drama titled Mayday. But here is the scoop! Ajay is not only starring in the film but he is also directing it! His directing the legend, Amitabh Bachchan is a first.
Revealed a source, “Ajay Devgn will not only play the lead in the film along with Big B but also direct the film. This will also be the first time Ajay will be directing Bachchan saab on celluloid. When he was thinking of the cast for his next directorial venture, he immediately thought of Amit ji and offered him the role.”
Adding, “Mayday is a thrilling human story which Big B loved and he agreed to be part of the project.”
We have learned that Ajay Devgn will be seen playing pilot in the film but that really is all that is known about the story. There are no details yet on the Big B’s character, which the makers have kept under wraps for the time being. The rest of the cast is still being finalised.
Sources say the project will go on floors this December in Hyderabad after Ajay completes his work on Bhuj. Bachchan Senior is currently shooting for KBC.
After the massive success of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, we are looking forward to seeing Ajay in yet another spellbinding character as well as Mr. Bachchan in this new avatar!
