Ajay Devgn signs Rajkumar Santoshi’s Fateh Singh

Ajay Devgn is signing films left, right and centre! The actor, who was expected not to have a release in 2015, has signed three films back-to-back after his ambitious directorial venture ‘Shivaay’ was delayed.

After signing Milan Luthria’s Baadshaho and Nishikant Kamat’s remake of Malayalam film Drishyam, Ajay has now been finalised to play the lead in Rajkumar Santoshi’s Fateh Singh.

The film is expected to go on floors in December 2015. The release date hasn’t been announced. Apart from Ajay, the rest of the cast hasn’t been finalised.

Sources say, Ajay will be playing the role of a Sardar in what is expected to be yet another hard-hitting film. Under the direction of Santoshi, Ajay had delivered arguably the best performance of his career in ‘The Legend Of Bhagat Singh’.

More importantly, after debacles like Action Jackson and Himmatwala, Ajay seems to have made a conscious decision to switch back to content-driven films. While all three films will have commercial elements to bring audiences to theatres, Ajay is working with directors who have directed acclaimed films.

  • It is being speculated that,Hrithik has signed vishal bhardwaj’s The Departed remake…
    Almost every superstar except salman have now focussed towards content driven films-
    Aamir-dangal
    Srk-raees,fan
    Akki-brothers,airlift,baby2,omg2
    Hrithik-mohenjodaro
    Ajay-fateh singh,drishyam

    I hope sallu’s Sultan turns out to be his content film but i have doubts since it will direced by ali abbas zaffar who made crap Gunday.

  • @ARJUN kappr fan aka buddha

    But on other idiot arjun kappor doing bad films of same uttar pradesh backgrnd with bony kapor……! Another B-grade flop for him …..!.. I don’t think any arjun kappr film will get even 7cr opening in next 2-3 years…… So RIP @arjun kappr fan ….hahaha…

    All d best Ajay d

  • @Babaji : How can you declare upcoming Salman movies as content less when nobody knows about the complete script ?? Are you taking some classes from Bejaan Daruwala to make predictions ? Wait for PRDP & Shuddhi. Salman will do what suits him n what his fans want. He doesnt have to do a Dhobhi Ghat or Guzaarish to prove anything.

  • Waiting for drisyam remake,not a massla movie.malayam drisyam collect huge and impossible target for other mollywood movie.
    Ajay sure justifies this role,so next sleeper superhit on floors.

  • Once ajay devgn given back to back superb performance like apaharan , khakee, dewangee, gangajal, bhagat sing, rajneeti etc …..but now he is giving golmal returns, himmatwala, aj…

  • Dhrishyam remake would be a hit, no doubt on that. Devgn will surely shine.

    After an average Phata Poster, i hope Santoshi does justice to this movie.

  • @babaji

  • Yes,this is news that makes me very happy.Thanks Ajay for choosing content driven films. I’m also glad seeing Santoshi and Ajay work together again.I absolutely love TLOBS that movie is so good.

  • @indicine, Santoshi confirmed last year that Ajay Devgn has been signed on for an Indo-French film, in which he will be directing and Ajay will play king Ashoka and Jenefer Lopez the female lead of the film.
