There have been reports of Ajay Devgn teaming up with YRF for one of their upcoming projects. It was said that it will be a superhero film.

However, according to a report in Mid-day, Devgn will be seen playing a grey character in the film and the movie will be on the lines of the Dhoom franchise. The movie will also stars Ananya Panday’s cousin Ahaan Panday.

A source told the tabloid, “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.”

The report further stated that the makers are planning to rope in action directors from Hollywood and Korea. The source said, “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.”

Well, apart from YRF’s next, Ajay Devgn has multiple films lined up. He will next be seen in Bhuj: The Pride Of India which is slated to release on Disney+ Hotstar. The actor also has Maidaan, Gangubai Kathiawadi, Kaithi remake, Chanakya biopic and Thank God in his kitty.
