Bollywood superstar Ajay Devgn has announced the biggest film of his career. Titled ’Sons Of Sardaar’, the film will be based on the “battle of Saragarhi”. The actor has promised to match the scale of Hollywood film ‘300’.
Ajay has also locked the release date of the film. Sons Of Sardaar, which has absolutely no connection with his 2012 comedy film ‘Son Of Sardaar’, will release during Diwali 2017.
The actor tweeted ”Need your best wishes for ‘Sons Of Sardaar’, will match the scale of Hollywood war film ‘300’ and based on epic Battle of Saragarhi. Diwali 2017.”
The historic ‘Battle of Saragarhi’ was fought on September 12 1897. 21 Sikhs of the 4th Battalion of the Sikh Regiment, gave up their lives defending an army post by fighting against 10,000 Afghans. The battle occurred in the North-West Frontier Province and is now named the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
Ajay has a busy schedule ahead of him. After completing the shooting schedule of Milan Luthria’s ‘Baadshaho’, Ajay will begin shooting for his directorial venture ‘Shivaay’ which is scheduled to release during Diwali next year.
After the completion of ‘Shivaay’, Ajay will begin shooting for ‘Sons Of Sardaar’.
With two films scheduled to release during the lucrative Diwali weekend, it remains to be seen if Ajay can break the ‘Khan monopoly’ with two massive films. Karan Johar has also locked his film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ for Diwali next year.
