Milan Will Re-Write the Script for Ajay Devgan

It seems that director Milan Luthria is so impressed by actor Ajat Devgan that he wants him for his next, titled by hook or by crook. Another buzz is that, if in case Ajay rejects the script of the flick, he is ready to re-write it.

Milan is again directing Ekta Kapoor’s Dirty Picture, by hook or by crook, in which he is again seeking to cast Ajay Devgan. Milan is so much influenced by Ajay’s acting that he told Ekta that he is writing the role of the director in Dirty Picture keeping the actor’s intensity and brooding romantic character in mind.  He also added that if the actor refuses to do so, he is willingly re-write the script as he can only see Ajay in this role. Milan says,

“Ajay made a huge impact in the romantic portions of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.  I’m writing a similar character for DP but with a slightly different take. It’s sure to make women go weak in the knees.”

“OUATIM’s Sultan was a larger than-life romantic. The lead role opposite Vidya in Dirty Picture is even more enigmatic. I haven’t met Devgn yet but I am writing the script keeping him in mind.”

A source said in regard to approaching Ajay for the film,

“Milan has approached him for the male lead in DP and given him an idea about the film. He is excited and is waiting to hear the script after Milan completes it. AJ loves doing intense, romantic films but most scripts don’t offer him any scope. He’s looking forward to the DP script and is flattered that the director is writing it keeping him in mind.”

Dirty Picture (DP) is a biopic on yesteryear screen seductress Silk Smitha. Vidya Balan plays the title role. A source says,

“It’s the love story between an actress (inspired from south actress Silk Smitha’s life) and a director who doesn’t compromise his principles for his craft yet falls in love with this woman with a past. Milan feels that Ajay would suit the role of the intense, romantic filmmaker.”

Well that’s called favoritism! Ajay must be happy after seeing director’s response to his work!
