After scoring some of the biggest Bollywood hits recently, it is reported that Ajay Devgn is set to spell magic for digital streaming giant, Amazon Prime Video, with a whopping five-film deal.

A source told a leading publication, “Ajay slate is promising and he was being chased by multiple giants for a deal and it’s eventually Amazon, who has bagged his slate of releases. His deal in monetary terms per film is the second highest of all time after Salman Khan, who also has a deal with Amazon Prime.”

The source added, “The Star Network, particularly on the satellite front, made a lot of money from Ajay Devgn films, which played a significant role in pushing up his market value. While a digital deal has been locked and signed, he is on the verge of closing his satellite deal too with a leading channel, the details of which has been kept under wraps,” the source informed and also added that the deal with Amazon will have no impact on Ajay Devgn’s digital debut with a web-series, Luther, for Hotstar. “Luther is in his kitty and will take off next year, irrespective of the digital deal with Amazon.”
