A few weeks ago, BizAsiaLive.com reported that Ajay Devgn will be seen in one of Yash Raj Films’ upcoming ventures. It has now emerged that the character Devgn will play in the film, will be somewhat “grey”.
Mid-Day reports that the Shiv-Rawail directorial will see Devgn and Aditya Chopra working together for the first time. This will also be the debut film of Ananya Panday’s cousin, Ahaan Panday.
A source said, “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  and Dhoom 3  respectively. Ajay is expected to sport multiple looks, which will involve the use of prosthetics.”
The source added, “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  and Dunkirk , and South Korean action director SeaYoung Oh of Snowpiercer fame for the project.”
Shooting for the film will commence in early 2021.
