Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan have worked together in films like Zameen, Yuva and Bol Bachchan. And now, the two are all set to collaborate once again but they won’t share screen space with each other. According to a report in a tabloid, Ajay Devgn has roped in Abhishek Bachchan to play the male lead in his next production venture. The movie will also star Ajay’s Baadshaho and Raid co-star Ileana D’Cruz in the lead role.
It is said that the untitled film is based on real-life events. A source said, “It is based on real events that took place between 1990 and 2000 and changed India’s financial fabric. Ajay loved the subject and immediately agreed to back it. Ileana has a very strong role in the film but isn’t paired opposite Abhishek. The team is on the lookout for an actress to be paired with him. The film will go on the floors by the year-end.”
This will be for the first time when Abhishek and Ileana will be seen together on the big screen. Talking about their other projects, Abhishek will be seen in Anurag Basu’s untitled next which is slated to release next year. The actor will be making his digital debut this year with the web series Breathe 2.
Meanwhile, Ileana, who was last seen on the big screen in Raid, will next be seen in Pagalpanti which also stars Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda and Urvashi Rautela. The movie is directed by Anees Bazmee.
Coming to Ajay Devgn, he has some interesting projects in his kitty like Taanaji – The Unsung Warrior, Bhuj: The Pride Of India, Lub Ranjan’s untitled next and a movie based on Chanakya. While Taanaji – The Unsung Warrior is slated to release on 10th January 2020, Bhuj: The Pride Of India hits the screens on Independence Day next year. Luv Ranjan’s film also stars Ranbir Kapoor and it is slated to release on Christmas 2020.
