It has been a long time since actor Ajay Devgn has featured in a romantic comedy project as his liking is towards action or all out comedy projects. However, the actor has now given his consent for a contemporary rom-com to be written and produced by Luv Ranjan. The plot of the movie will revolve around the modern day take on urban relationships with Ajay’s character resonating with today’s youth.
Luv Ranjan, who has directed youth centric love stories like ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ and ‘Pyaar Ka Punchama 2’, is excited about presenting Ajay Devgn in a different avatar which will be a far cry from his action image. The filmmaker wants to tap Ajay’s uber-cool image which has seldom been explored by Bollywood makers.
The yet untitled movie is being directed by debutante Akiv Ali a critically acclaimed editor of movies like ‘Barfi’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’, ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’, ‘Agneepath’ and upcoming ‘Jagga Jasoos’. Ajay, who is currently shooting for Milan Luthria’s ‘Baadshaho’, is soon to start work on Luv Ranjan’s movie.
