Ajay Devgn has confirmed that he is producing the remake of National Award winning Tamil film Jigarthanda. Farhan Akhtar and Sanjay Dutt will play an assistant director and a gangster respectively in his next home production.
The film will be directed by Nishikant Kamat. "I am producing the film and we are working on the script. It will start in January-February. It is inspired from Tamil film 'Jigarthanda' (released in 2014). It is a fabulous story. It is not going to be an exact copy of the film, we will change things. But at the same time, quite a lot of stuff will be similar," Ajay told PTI.
"I was too occupied with work and I felt Farhan and Sanjay were apt for the film. It is true that Farhan plays an assistant director and Sanjay a gangster. This premise will be the same in terms of their role," Ajay says.
"I have a production house. We are making some five-six films, so I can't do all the films. I have to be honest to the story and cast actors who suit the parts. My intention is to stay true to the story."
Ajay Devgn is looking forward to the release of Golmaal Again on October 20.
