Actress Angira Dhar is gearing up to join Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn and Rakulpreet Singh in the upcoming thriller, ‘Mayday‘. Angira will essay the role of a lawyer in the film.
“I am absolutely thrilled and excited to be sharing the screen with the true legends of our film industry Amitabh sir and Ajay sir! ‘Mayday’ is going to be one hell of a ride. Can’t wait to be directed by Mr Devgn himself,” said Angira, who was last seen in ‘Commando 3’.
‘Mayday’ is directed and produced by Ajay, and the film marks his return on screen with Big B after ‘Major Sahab’, ‘Khakee’, ‘Satyagraha’ and ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’. The new film, which belongs to the drama genre, sees the two stars collaborate after over seven years. Their last outing together, ‘Satyagraha’, released in August 2013.
Unconfirmed sources have said that Ajay plays a pilot in the film. Interestingly, Ajay is also playing an IAF officer in his upcoming movie ‘Bhuj: The Pride Of India’. Rakul Preet will be seen as a co-pilot in the film, billed as an edge-of-the-seat drama. Details about Big B’s character is under wraps.
The movie is being produced by Ajay Devgn’s Ajay Devgn Films. Apart from producing, Devgn is also directing the film. The actor had turned a director with his movie ‘Shivaay’, which, a Diwali release, had fared average at the Box Office.
According to sources, ‘MayDay’ will go on floors this December in Hyderabad after Ajay completes his work on ‘Bhuj’. Bachchan Senior, on the other hand, is currently shooting for KBC. He is also yet to shoot a few of his scenes in Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’.
On the work front, while Ajay’s film ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ is the highest grosser of 2020, Amitabh Bachchan’s movie ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ started the trend of releasing films on OTT platforms.
