Ajay Devgn and Prabhu Deva in a still from Action Jackson.
Director Prabhudheva had to postpone the shooting of the elaborate climax of his upcoming film Action Jackson to July as its lead actor Ajay Devgn is busy with Singham Returns.
"This is the way Ajay planned the releases. He wants to complete Singham Returns first. The climax of Action Jackson, which is pending, would now be shot in the monsoon," said a source.
And Prabhudheva is worried. He said: "It's a very tough climax involving a large volume of cast, crew, finances and labour. But July would also be the time for torrential rains. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong."
Apparently, the director wants the July climax to be shifted to Hyderabad from Filmcity, Mumbai. However, the producers insist on shooting in Mumbai.
"We had no choice but to shift the climax to July as Ajay is busy with Singham Returns. But I'm sure everything will be fine. This is the first time I've worked with Ajay Devgn and I can tell you for sure this is going to be one of his most special films," said Prabhudheva.
"Not only are his action sequences in Action Jackson unique, Ajay has also done a straight-faced humour here which would bring the roof down. No matter when we release, Ajay's fans will be happy," he added.
