And among them is a superhero film, which will feature Ajay Devgn along with Ahaan Pandey. It will be directed by Shiv Rawail and will made on the budget Rs 180 crore. As per the Bollywood Hungama report, a source said, “Being a superhero film, YRF has allotted Rs. 90 crores budget to the cost of production of the film in addition to the print and publicity expenditure and Ajay Devgn’s acting fees. Taking a tentative figure for both the expenses, the approx. budget of the film will come closer to the Rs. 180 crore mark, which is also among the costliest film for Ajay Devgn till date.”

The source further said the makers will make it a franchise just like the Dhoom series and added, “It’s a template like Dhoom, however in the superhero universe. The character of baddie will be like a hero in the franchise, and more like a central character in every film. The franchise is also a long term launch plan for Ahaan, making it the most expensive and extensive launch till date in Hindi film history. Ajay’s character is said to be fantastic with phenomenal action, acting and screen time.”

“Ajay’s track is not that of a quintessential villain, but has several shades to it, which made it exciting for the actor to sign on. In-fact, when Adi approached Ajay with the film, he just couldn’t say a ‘no’,” added the source. The official announcement of this news is expected to happen on September 27, which marks the birth anniversary of YRF founder Yash Chopra. So, are you excited for this venture?
