Ajay Devgn’s first look from Luv Ranjan’s next.

Talking about casting Ajay for the film, Luv said, “The way I see it, it’s the side of Ajay that comes most naturally to him. His uber cool personality in real life has seldom been explored. There is a subtlety in his humour that blends perfectly with my writing.”

Ajay was last seen in Shivaay, an action film, which also starred Sayesha Sehgal and Erika Kaar.

To be produced by Luv with his partner Ankur Garg, the film will see Akiv Ali make his debut as a director. The critically acclaimed and award-winning editor has more than 30 films to his credit, including Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Barfi!, Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, Agneepath and the upcoming Jagga Jasoos.
