Bollywood star Ajay Devgn is all geared up to star in his upcoming film Chanakya. The actor will play the role of the greatest political thinker Chanakya. The film will be helmed by ace director Neeraj Pandey whose films like Baby, A Wednesday, Special 26 and Rustom have done exceptionally well. Ajay Devgn was last seen in the movie Raid that was very well-appreciated by the critics and the public.
This is the first time that Ajay Devgn will be collaborating with filmmaker Neeraj Pandey. The film will be based on the life of Chanakya or Kautilya who played a very important part in the establishment of the Chandragupta Maurya dynasty. He was a political thinker, economist, teacher, philosopher. Chanakya wrote Arthashastra, the ancient Indian political treatise that talks about statecraft, military strategy and more. Reliance Entertainment is producing the film. The release date is yet to be confirmed and so is the cast-crew list.
Ajay Devgn has other projects lined up like Total Dhamaal directed by Inder Kumar. Total Dhamaal is the third installment of ‘Dhamaal’ franchise and will star Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi and Jaaved Jaaferi, the original star cast. The film will also have Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit playing important roles. His other film is Sons of Sardar: Battle of Saragarhi. The actor is also producing the film Helicopter Eela which stars his wife Kajol in it. The first look poster of Helicopter Eela was released and looks really interesting. Helicopter Eela is directed by Pradeep Sarkar and is an adaptation of a Gujarati play written by Anand Gandhi – The Ship Of Theseus.
We are excited about watching Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn play the role of this visionary. This will be a very interesting film that shouldn’t be missed.
