Ajay Devgn was cast as Supervillean in it. The budget of this film, including his fees, was going to be 180 crores.
Directed by Shiva Rawail, this film, Yash Raj wanted a lot of dates for Ajay Devgn, which was difficult for a busy actor in multiple projects, while on the other hand, Yash Raj Films was in the mood to pursue it. I was not there at all. So Ajay shied away from it.
A source close to Bollywood Hungama says, ‘Ajay did not sign the film. His role in this film was quite powerful, but due to lack of dates, the actor refused to do the film. Aditya does not want to pursue the film anymore as Ahaan has been waiting for the film for many years. He was still trying to prepare this project.
The source further said, ‘This film has been put on hold till the end of the year, if the actor has dates, then he can become a part of this film. Talking of the work front, Ajay Devgan these days is not only Hindi cinema but Engaged in films up to the south. His look in SS Rajamouli’s film RRR has been praised ever since. All other new things are also included in Ajay’s planning. Currently, he has many films in the pipeline like ‘Maidan’, ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, ‘Mede’, ‘Thank God’ and an untitled Neeraj Pandey film (based on Chanakya). Apart from this, he is also planning some new films for his home production.
