Ajay Devgn’s next big project is Sons Of Sardaar: Battle of Saragarhi!
Also, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar are working together on the same story based on Havildar Ishar Singh.
When Karan announced his film, Ajay was quite saddened. An insider says,
Ajay didn’t believe the news initially. He considers Salman family and they’ve known each other for decades.
He sent across an emotional message to Salman, the same week as the announcement, through a common friend, saying he hadn’t expected Salman to hurt him like this. He added that it was unfair of him to make a film on the same subject that he and his team had been working on for the last couple of years. He requested Salman not to do the same story if possible.
However, a source close to Salman shared some different views. The source said,
Knowing him, he must not even have known that Ajay was making this film. He will never do anything to hurt a friend.
Ajay and Akshay are playing Havaldar Ishar Singh in their respective films. Ajay has announced the film long back during the shoots of Shivaay only.
A filmmaker commented about the soured relationship Ajay and Karan:
This looks like Karan’s still not over his fight with Ajay. He wants to take it to the next level. And with him announcing a heavyweight film like this which is similar to Ajay’s film and getting Salman to back it up, it’s already a victory for Karan. Now, it needs to be seen what Ajay’s next plans would be.
