Director Milan Luthria’s ambitious project Baadshaho, starring Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi, kickstarted its shoot today. Emraan, Ileana D’Cruz and Esha Gupta took to social media to make the announcement.
Having completed Shivaay, Ajay is now shifting his focus to Baadshaho. The film sees Ajay collaborating with Milan for the fourth time after Kachche Dhaage, Chori Chori & Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.
The star cast of the film underwent several changes since the project was announced. While Shruti Haasan was initially roped in to play one of the female leads, the actress opted out of the movie. It was reported that she found the final script too intense for her liking. Lisa Haydon too opted out of the film soon after (BUZZ: Shruti Haasan, Lisa Haydon out of Badshao, ). Similarly, Vidyut Jamwal was brought on board after Pulkit Samrat made an exit from the much talked-about film.
Emraan and Ajay will reportedly be seen in an item number alongside Sunny Leone. Set against the backdrop of the 70’s Emergency, the film will be shot in Mumbai and Rajasthan. Written by Rajat Arora, Baadshaho is produced by T-Series and Milan Luthria Films. The movie is expected to hit the theatres mid next year.
