Late last year, reports suggested that Ajay Devgn may make his Tamil debut with Shankar's Indian 2. It was heard that the actor was approached to play the antagonist to Kamal Haasan's moral vigilante in the sequel to the 1996 hit, Indian. While the rumours died a natural death, there is renewed chatter about Devgn being South-bound after all - this time, with the Baahubali maker, SS Rajamouli. Buzz is that the actor will be seen in the director's mega-budget film, tentatively titled RRR, that features Ram Charan Teja and NT Rama Rao Jr.
With the spotlight on his possible South collaborations, Devgn - currently neck-deep in the promotions of Total Dhamaal - opens up for the first time on why he had to let go of the Haasan starrer. —Mid-day
