Ajay Devgan made his entry into Bollywood with superhit action film ‘Phool Aur Kaante’. Since then, the actor has done a variety of roles ranging from romantic movies to comedies. Now, the actor has decided to go back to his first love, action. Ajay has joined hands with Rohit Shetty to re-make super hit Malayali action film ‘Puhtiya Mukham’ and has bought its rights for an undisclosed amount.
The original movie starred Kerala superstar Prithviraj and was one of the biggest hits of last year. Rohit Shetty says, “I have seen PUTHIYA MUKHAM three times. Ajay and I have been wanting to do a hardcore action film for the last three years. At last, we are doing it!”
The film is scheduled to go on floors by year end or early next year. Ajay has already a lot of films in line awaiting release this year including Ashwni Dhir’s ATITHI TUM KAB JAOGE?, Prakash Jha’s RAAJNEETI, Kireet Khurana’s TOONPUR KA SUPERHERO, Priyadarshan’s GARAM HAWA, Bunty Lutharia’s ONCE UPON A TIME and Rohit Shetty’s GOLMAAL 3; that begins shooting this April.
