MUMBAI: Actor Ajay Devgn is back to doing action films with his forthcoming film Singham after eight years since his last action film.
Singham is produced by Reliance Entertainment and directed by Rohit Shetty. The actor is currently in Goa, shooting the film.
Devgn says, “It’s a film about men. ‘Singham’ will mark the return of hardcore raw action to the cinemas with a lot of dialogue-baazi and machismo. It should sock a punch; it will connect to the man on the street because of its simple narrative and terrific action.”
Shetty said, “My hero Bajirao Singham (Ajay) is a simple police officer who is happy to toe the line till he is provoked by baddie Prakash Raj to show his ferocious side. And when Ajay does that, hell breaks loose.”
“I have not used a single foreign fighter or imported any foreign equipment for my film. I personally feel indigenous action has a better impact than all the foreign stunts that people are obsessing about these days. As Indians, we identify with our style of raw action, which we have sidelined because some of us have suddenly developed an affinity to the West. To each his own, but for me what works is our own desi action,’’ adds Shetty.
Singham also stars southern beauty Kajal Aggarwal as the female. The film is slated for release on 22 July.
