Ajay Devgn, who last graced the silver screen with historic-drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, is all set to sport a new look in his upcoming film. Reportedly, Ajay Devgn will go bald for the film, which is reported to be based on Chanakya, the royal advisor of Maurya Kingdom. Interestingly, the upcomer is also titled Chanakya.
Meanwhile, it was director Neeraj Pandey, who broke the news of Ajay Devgn's look in Chanakya, during his recent media interview. He also revealed that the Chanakya team was supposed to kick-start the pre-production work on the upcomer in April. However, due to the lockdown, the makers of Chanakya were forced to push the pre-production work.
Chanakya featuring Ajay Devgn in the lead is reported to be a two-part film. Reports suggest that the makers will be shooting both the parts one after the other. Chanakya will also mark the first collaboration between Ajay Devgn and Neeraj Pandey, who last helmed MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. The upcomer is expected to go on floors in October this year.
On the work front, Ajay Devgn will be next seen in Abhishek Dudhaiya's Bhuj: The Pride of India. The movie, starring Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead, narrates a real-life story. The upcomer is slated to hit the marquee on August 14, 2020. Besides the upcomer, Ajay Devgn also has Amit Sharma's Maidaan and SS Rajamouli's RRR in the pipeline. Interestingly, RRR will mark Ajay's Telugu debut. Recently, Ajay Devgn has been signed to essay the lead role in the Hindi remake of Kollywood film Kaithi. The upcomer that is in pre-production is rumoured to be directed by Ajay's cousin Dharmendra Sharma.
