Actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn is currently directing his fourth film, the high-octane, emotional drama Bholaa starring Tabu and himself in the lead roles. The actor has previously helmed U, Me Aur Hum, Shivaay, and Runway 34. Now, he is set to finish principal photography on his fourth directorial Bholaa by August 20. When asked how he managed to shoot the film so quickly after the release of Runway 34 in April, Devgn told an interviewer, “Well the preparation was done earlier on. It was just a question of getting behind the camera again and saying the three magic words, ‘Lights, camera, action!'”
Bholaa is a remake of the 2019 Tamil blockbuster Kaithi, an action thriller directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. The original film revolves around a prisoner, played by Karthi, who comes to the aid of the police when they are attacked by a gang of smugglers. In exchange, the police help him reunite with his daughter.
Ajay Devgn’s next lead role will be in Indra Kumar’s Thank God along with Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh.
