Ajay Devgan to Play Terrorist in Priyadarshan’s Speed Remake
Bollywood actor Ajay Devgan has played many versatile roles in his almost two decade long career. He has been appreciated in all shades, may be as a romantic, action or as a comedy hero. Ajay has also earned accolades in the negative roles also and he is again doing the same thing for Priyadarshan’s next movie, which is a remake of Hollywood film Speed.
Ajay has proved his powerful acting in the negative roles in the films like Deewangee, Apaharan, Shikhar, and Company. In his upcoming movie Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, Ajay will be seen playing again a gangster.
Devgan will play a terrorist in Priyadarshan’s lastest venture. The original Hollywood version of Speed was directed by Jan de Bont, which was released in 1994.
The actor will be seen placing a bomb in a subway train in the Bollywood version, whereas in Bont’s movie, it was on a bus.
Director Priyadarshan informed, “In our film, we have changed the bus by a train”. Informing about the location in London, he added, “We have managed to take permission for shooting in a station in London and also inside a train. We had to give lots of effort but at last we did it. Without the train and the actual locations, it does not make any sense to shoot the film”.
The film, which is yet untitled, stars Manoj Bajpai, Kangana Ranaut, Suniel Shetty, Sameer Reddy, and Tusshar Kapoor apart from Devgan.
Informing about the cast, Priyadarshan said, “Kangana is signed to star opposite Ajay and this is for the first time I am working with both of them. Sameera and Tusshar will also be seen as terrorists. My favorite actor Suniel Shetty will appear in a very special role”.
