Mayday: Ajay Devgn’s double duty begins
Over four years after Shivaay (2016), Ajay Devgn wielded the directorial baton again as he kicked off the shoot of Mayday yesterday. With an extensive schedule lined up for the Amitabh Bachchan and Rakul Preet Singh starrer, the actor-director filmed the mahurat shot at Ramoji Film City with co-star Aakanksha Singh.
“Bachchan is expected to shoot his portions by the month-end,” adds the source.
“Aakanksha, who shot to fame with the show Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha, made her film debut with Badrinath Ki Dulhania and went on to act in several Tamil and Telugu movies.
The thriller, which sees Devgn as a pilot, is inspired by a 2015 incident that has been further dramatised for the screen.
