Ajay to play a grey character in YRF’s next film

Bollywood’s one of the big film production houses Yash Raj Films has some interesting films lined up. One of the flicks people are damn excited about is Ajay Devgn’s first collaboration with Aditya Chopra. It seems Chopra wants to create something very iconic with Ajay Devgn. 

According to mid-day, writers are penning down a grey character for the superstar. The film is going to be directed by Shiv Rawail, who is the son of famous filmmaker, Rahul Rawail.

“While the film marks the debut of Ananya Panday’s cousin Ahaan, Ajay leads the show from the front. Taking a cue from the Dhoom franchise where the antagonists have often overshadowed the heroes, Aditya has devised a cool and savvy character with grey shades for Ajay.

It will be along the lines of Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan’s characters in Dhoom 2 (2006) and Dhoom 3 (2013) respectively. Ajay is expected to sport multiple looks, which will involve the use of prosthetics," reveals a trade source.

Contrary to reports suggesting that it is a superhero film, it will be a slick actioner, complete with mean machines and high-octane stunts. If all goes as planned, the movie will serve as the foundation for a new franchise.

“Boosted by the success of the Dhoom movies, Adi has been contemplating developing another franchise for long. He knows that Ajay, with his massive fan following, will be one of the safest bets to kickstart an action series. The production house is in talks with Hollywood action director Tom Struthers, who has previously worked on The Dark Knight (2008) and Dunkirk (2017), and South Korean action director SeaYoung Oh of Snowpiercer fame for the project," adds the source.

The actor is expected to begin shooting for the yet-untitled film in early 2021 after he wraps up Maidaan and the Kaithi remake. YRF remained unavailable for comment.
