Speculations are rife in Bollywood corridors that superstar Ajay Devgn has green-lighted a new film as a producer. Abhishek Bachchan and Ileana D’Cruz are expected to play the lead roles in the untitled project.

Abhishek Bachchan, who won rave reviews for his outstanding performance in Anurag Kashyap’s critically-acclaimed film Manmarziya (2018), has some exciting projects in his pocket. While he has already shot for filmmaker Anurag Basu’s next, news has emerged that he has landed yet another exciting film as the male lead.

According to fresh reports, superstar Ajay Devgn has green-lighted a new project as a producer. Abhishek Bachchan, who has previously worked with Devgn on such films as Zameem (2003) and Bol Bachchan (2012), is rumoured to be playing the male lead in the film, while Ileana D’Cruz has come onboard as the female lead. Casting for other important characters is underway.

Kookie Gulati has been entrusted with the responsibility of calling the shots for the film. Though Ileana D’Cruz will be the leading lady in the film, she is not paired opposite Abhishek Bachchan. The makers are currently looking for a suitable face to cast opposite the Dhoom (2004) actor.

Earlier this year, several media outlets reported that filmmaker Indra Kumar and Ajay Devgn were planning a film on Mehta to be titled The Big Bull. However, Kookie Gulati has now been locked to helm the film. Interestingly, award-winning filmmaker Hansal Mehta, who is directing Turram Khan for Ajay Devgn’s production house, is also making a web-series on the same stockbroker. It is titled Scam and it is based on Sucheta Dalal’s book.
