Ajay Devgn, who is basking in the success of his latest Hindi release Tanhaji, co-starring Saif Ali Khan and his wife Kajol, is on to his next project. He has begun shooting for SSS Rajamouli’s much-anticipated RRR in Telugu in a very special role. Sources say it’s an extended guest appearance where Devgn would be seen playing a real-life character from the 18th century. Looks like after Tanhaji, Ajay is keen to do more period films.
Ajay Devgn kick-starts the schedule of SS Rajamouli’s next project RRR
Devgan and Rajamouli have been planning to collaborate for the last eight years. In 2012 for the Hindi version of Rajamouli’s Eega the director met Ajay Devgan and Kajol and hit it off instantly. The star-couple readily did the voiceover for the Hindi version of Eega (Makkhi).
The director also agreed to direct a Hindi film for Ajay which Ajay decided to produce. “But at that point of time, Rajamouli was committed to doing a Telugu film with Prabhas. So he did Baahubali. But now it’s time to do a Hindi film with Ajay Devgn,” says the source.
All we know about the project at the moment is, that it will be an original story and not a remake of any film already directed by Rajamouli.
