Actor-producer Ajay Devgn organised a special screening of his latest film "Son Of Sardaar" (SOS) for Indian cricketers. Names like Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Virat Kohli came to watch the comic entertainer.
The screening was organised here Sunday.
Asked about the reason behind a special screening for cricketers, Ajay said: "Some are my friends and they also wanted to see the film and I also wanted to show it to them. SOS is a high energy film."
Ajay is confident his film, which hits the screens Tuesday, will get great response at the box office.
Actress Vidya Balan is eagerly waiting to do a romantic film with a good script, and she is open to working with any actor in it.
"I love romance. I am just waiting that someone approaches me for a romantic, good relationship story, but nothing exciting has come my way so far. But I am open to any kind of film, I will be happy to do it. I am happy to romance with anyone as long as its a good romance," she says.
Actor Aamir Khan, who plays a cop in his next film "Talaash", says the script, which is thrilling yet emotional, attracted him most to the project.
"For me, it was the script. When I was listening to the script, I was very stressed and tense as I could not predict what is going to happen (in the story). So I found the story very exciting," said Aamir.
The actor, who spoke on the sidelines of a recent event here, says the movie goes beyond being a mere thriller.
