Ajay Devgn had announced with considerable excitement that he'll be stepping in to play the eponymous role of Chanakya, the revered statesman and on of the sharpest brains in all of Indian history, in a film directed by one of India's best filmmakers, Neeraj Pandey (Baby, Special 26, A Wednesday, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story), back in 2018. Taking to his official Twitter handle, Ajay Devgn had written: “Looking forward to playing #Chanakya, a film about one of the greatest thinkers in Indian History, directed by @neerajpofficial. @RelianceEnt @FFW_Official @PlanC_Studios @ShitalBhatiaFFW .” Check out his tweet below:
However, not much has been know about the project since then, until now. In an exclusive video interview with BollywoodLife, the Director of Chanakya himself, Neeraj Pandey, has revealed when the movie will be going on floors and when we could expect it to release in the pecking order of other Ajay Devgn projects lined up.
“We're going on floors next year (with Chanakya),” said Neeraj Pandey. Upon being probed further whether many other Ajay Devgn projects could release prior to Chanakya, the filmmaker added, “Yeah, yeah, of course... like many films, even his show (Rudra: The Edge of Darkness, Ajay's debut web series, an official remake of the immensely popular and critically acclaimed British TV show, Luther, starring Idris Elba) could come before that.”
