Ajay Devgn and the team of his upcoming film Bhuj: The Pride Of India had to stall the shoot due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Eight months later, the actor reportedly resumed shoot in Hyderabad's Ramoji Film City. Ajay started work on the war film yesterday, if reports are to be believed. A source close to the development told a leading daily that the team will call it a wrap after a 10-day schedule. The cast and crew of the Abhishek Dudhaiya directorial are ensuring that all guidelines are followed.
"Considering major portions of the war drama were filmed well before the lockdown, the makers have charted out a 10-day schedule, following which they can call it a wrap. A set has been erected at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, and the team will adhere to the on-set guidelines during the stint," the source told. Reportedly, Sanjay Dutt will be joining the team on the sets today.
According to another leading daily, Ajay will begin work on his upcoming directorial titled Mayday from December 11. The film reunites him with Amitabh Bachchan and Rakul Preet Singh. A source close to Mayday told the daily that Rakul will join Ajay and Amitabh from mid-December and they will shoot till January-end.
"From December 11, Ajay jumps on to his directorial, Mayday, which reunites him with Amitabh Bachchan after almost eight years, with his De De Pyaar De co-star, Rakul Preet Singh, as his co-pilot. They will be shooting non-stop till January-end. Rakul will join the shoot from mid-December and the entire team will be stationed together in a bio-bubble," the source said.
After Mayday, Ajay will reportedly complete the shoot of Syed Abdul Rahim's biopic titled Maidaan. Before the lockdown, major portions of Maidaan were shot. However, some football scenes are pending which will be shot in Mumbai where a stadium will be recreated.
