Ajay Devgn to Star in Prabhu Deva’s Next – Action Jackson

It is Official. Ajay Devgn has signed up for Prabhu Deva’s next action film. Earlier rumors were around the internet that Prabhu Deva has approached Ajay devgn with a new film project. Today, the duo confirmed that they teamed up together for an action comedy film. It will titled ‘Action Jackson’. Ajay devgn is one of the most loved action hero in Bollywood and the choreographer turned director Prabhu deva is known for his masala action films. Prabhu deva has successfully collaborated with action heroes like Salman Khan and Akshay kumar in blockbuster films ‘Wanted’ and ‘Rowdy Rathore’. So when he said that he is looking for a new action hero for his upcoming film then it was obvious that he might go for Ajay devgn who surely needs a hit after his recent box office bomb Himmatwala.

Ajay devgn is excited to work with Prabhu deva. It is rumored that the title ‘Action Jackson’ was suggested by Ajay devgn. Ajay wanted the title to match his initials AJ. He is called AJ by his friends and family and even Blackberry profile name is AJ. So he thought it would be more easy to promote if the name of the film matches his initials.

With Ajay’s leatest film Satyagraha achieving the hit status, Ajay has now focused on his next project ‘Singham 2’ with Rohit Shetty. Action Jackson is said to star not one or two but three actresses in lead roles. Til now, only the names of Sonakshi Sinha and Yami Gautam are confirmed. Sonakshi has already worked with Ajay in Son of Sardar while it will be first time for Yami. Prabhu deva has hinted that the third actress will be a newbie.

Prabhu is already busy in shooting for Rambo Rajkumar with Shahid Kapoor. Before Action Jackson, he has already announced to team up with Salman Khan in another film (probably Wanted 2). He even said that he will pair up Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. We wonder how the director will be able to focus on two films at the same time with two superstars. Hope it doesn’t repeat the controversy of Ramaiya Vastavaiya where lead actress Shruti hassan said that Prabhu didn’t focused on Ramaiya Vastavaiya and gave more time to Rambo Rajkumar.

The title surely looks impressive and goes with other Prabhu deva’s titles – Rowdy Rathore, Rambo Rajkumar. However the title Action Jackson is already used by a 1988 Hollywood film. So will Action Jackson be a copy of Hollywood film?
