Ajay Devgn has confirmed rumours that he is remaking Tamil film ‘Jigarthanda’ starring Farhan Akhtar and Sanjay Dutt.
The film is directed by Nishikant Kamat, who worked with Devgn in ‘Drishyam’ in 2015.
A source was cited in Deccan Chronicle saying, “I am producing the film and we are working on the script. It will start in January-February. It is inspired from Tamil film ‘Jigarthanda’ (released in 2014). It is a fabulous story. It is not going to be an exact copy of the film, we will change things. But at the same time, quite a lot of stuff will be similar.”
He added, “I was too occupied with work and I felt Farhan and Sanjay were apt for the film. It is true that Farhan plays an assistant director and Sanjay a gangster. This premise will be the same in terms of their role.”
Devgn is in the midst of promotions of his next ‘Golmaal Again’, out this weekend.
