Raj Kumar Santoshi puts Ramayana on hold to start another project instead with favourite Ajay Devgan. Hiren Kotwani tells more.india Updated: Sep 18, 2007 19:13 IST
His forthcoming film, Halla Bol, is not out of post-production yet, but filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi has already begun scripting his next.
And no, it's not Ramayana with Ajay Devgan and Kajol playing Ram and Sita.. that's reportedly on hold for now.
A source says Santoshi has signed a two-movie deal with multiplex chain PVR, which is also venturijng into distribution and into film production.
One of Santoshi's projects is a solo-hero movie featuring Devgan. The other is a two-hero movie and Devgan could be part of that as well, depending on the script and the role he's offered.
On the PVR deal, Santoshi said, "We're talking, yes.." but refused to get into any details.
"It's too early to confirm anything yet," he added. The film is slated to begin early next year after Devgan is through with his maiden directorial venture, U, Me Aur Hum.
And Ramayana is rescheduled to start by the end of 2008.
