Ajay Devgn is currently busy promoting his upcoming movie, Raid. Directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, the film also stars Ileana D’Cruz in the lead role. In the film, Ajay plays the role of a deputy commissioner of Income Tax, while Ileana plays his wife, Malini.
However, Ajay is unwilling to reveal the name of the officer who inspired his character, Amay Patnaik. He told a leading daily, ‘’I’m not sure if he’d want that. The day he is comfortable with it, I’ll tell you his name.’’
‘’I didn’t really spend a lot of time with him but I heard a few more stories of IT raids from him and other officers. Some were funny and some scary, I marvelled at how casually he narrated the incident though I don’t think he’d have been as nonchalant then,” he added.
After the release of the intense crime drama, Ajay will start prepping for Luv Ranjan’s romcom, which reunites him with friend and long-time co-star Tabu and also features Rakul Preet Singh.
“We’ve finished the first schedule. It’s an urban comedy with an interesting concept. I’ve been busy with Raid promotions so I haven’t had the time to watch Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety but I have known Luv for a while now. He is a fabulous writer and director whom I trust. I loved the script,” Ajay said.
He is looking forward to work with Tabu with whom he shares a very different relationship. The two were last seen in Golmaal again (2017), which was super-hit at the box-office. “We’ve known each other from before we entered the industry and would hang out with the same group of friends. We can even abuse each other without it coming in the way of our friendship. I keep telling her to get married,” he said.
