Ajay Devgn is back in action, something he does best. Ajay will be seen playing the role of a tough cop in his upcoming flick Singham. His role will surely make you forget Dabangg’s Chulbul Pandey for good.
The actor is currently in Goa, shooting for the action thriller directed by Rohit Shetty.
“It’s a film about men,” explains Devgn. “‘Singham’ will mark the return of hardcore raw action to the cinemas with a lot of dialogue-baazi and machismo. It should sock a punch; it will connect to the man on the street because of its simple narrative and terrific action.”
Director Rohit Shetty is super enthusiastic about the film.
“My hero Bajirao Singham (Ajay) is a simple police officer who is happy to toe the line till he is provoked by baddie Prakash Raj to show his ferocious side. And when Ajay does that, hell breaks loose,” quips the stylish director.
This movie also marks the return of the raw desi action seen in Indian film earlier.
“I have not used a single foreign fighter or imported any foreign equipment for my film. I personally feel indigenous action has a better impact than all the foreign stunts that people are obsessing about these days. As Indians, we identify with our style of raw action, which we have sidelined because some of us have suddenly developed an affinity to the West. To each his own, but for me what works is our own desi action,” Shetty adds.
Singham is a remake of Tamil film of the same name. The story revolves around a Sub-Inspector named Singham, who is a brave policeman. He serves in his hometown primarily to fulfill his father’s wish. Singham settles every dispute in his town patiently with his words of wisdom and resorts to force only when the situation demands it. A city girl who comes on vacation to Nallore, falls in love with Singham.
Southern hottie Kajal Aggarwal is the leading lady of the film.
Singham is due for release on July 22.
