With most actors preferring to work on projects as a solo lead, it’s been awhile since we have had a big Bollywood multi-starrer. On September 1, this is going to change. Baadshaho, which releases that day, stars Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D'cruz, Esha Gupta, Vidyut Jamwal, and Sanjay Mishra. Whoa! Now that’s a casting coup. Giving enough screen time to all these stars must have been a task for director Milan Luthria but going by the Baadshaho trailer, he seems to have a great job. Not once does it focus on any particular character.
The film has been in the making for a long time as it was difficult to get dates from all the actors. Ajay Devgn was busy with Shivaay and Golmaal Again while Ileana was filming Mubarakan. Baadshaho is an important film for most of its cast as they haven’t had a blockbuster recently. The movie is special as this is the third time Devgn and Hashmi are doing a film together. They previously worked in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji and Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai.
Baadshaho is set in the emergency era and the drama unfolds when a huge amount of gold has to be transferred from Jaipur to Delhi by road. The trailer suggests that there’ll be multiple twists and turns with action and dialoguebaazi thrown in. The film is slated for a September 1st release.
