Bollywood’s action hero Ajay Devgn is soon going to become international, as it is being reported that he will soon be playing the role of King Ashoka in an Indian-French film.
The latest buzz suggests that the actor has been approached to play king Ashoka for an Indo-French film, which is being helmed by director Rajkumar Santoshi. “While Ajay will be playing the king, the makers are trying to rope in a big name from Hollywood for the female lead to make the project truly international. One of the names they’ve shortlisted is Jennifer Lopez because she can pull off an Indian queen role, as her features are quite Indian,” a source told Hindustan Times.
However, the female lead is yet to be cast. “We haven’t finalised anyone yet, and it’s not proper for us to talk about it. What I can tell you is that Ajay will play Ashoka, the great king. And director Rajkumar Santoshi will helm the project,” says Manuel Collas De La Roche, a French film _producer.
Santoshi confirms the news, saying, “Yes, that’s happening, but there are other films before it that I am working on.”
