Ajay Devgn’s New Movie is Inspired By Speed

Ajay Devgn will feature in Priyadarshan movie that is inspired by the 1994 thriller Speed that is still memorable in people’s minds. The Hollywood movie had a racy theme about a bomb in the bus that could explode if the bus lost its speed.

Priyadarshan says, "Yes, it is inspired by Speed but the difference is that we've translocated the terror attack from a bus to a train. The shooting of the untitled movie will start from September 1 and it will be on a speeding train that runs from London to Glasgow. Says the director, "We've got permission to shoot on an actual London station and a train. It took some effort. But we did it. I don't think it would've made sense to shoot the film without the actual location and train."

The casting is unusual from Priyadarshan standards who always has Akshay Kumar or Akshaye Khana at the helm of affairs This time he will go for a separate setup that has Ajay Devn, Sameera Reddy, Kangna Ranaut, Anil Kapoor and Manoj Bajpai along with his regular Sunil Shetty. Ajay Devgn will play the role of a villain while Manoj Bajpayee will play the role of the engineer who risks his life to see that the bom b does not go off.

Says Priyan, "I've just signed Kangna opposite Ajay. I've never worked with Kangna before. Tusshar Kapoor and Sameera Reddy have also been cast as terrorists. My other favourite Suniel Shetty is also there in a very special role." Robin Bhatt who has also written Priyadarshan’s Aakrosh has written this untitled terrorism based film.
