Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn (Source: Instagram | @amitabhbachchan, @ajaydevgn)
Amitabh Bachchan is a legend and someone whom people consider a privilege to work with. We’re always eager to know what Big B has in store for us, and looks like he has a big project in the pipeline which has gotten us excited!
The veteran actor is set to reunite with Ajay Devgn after 7 years for a thrilling, edge-of-the-seat drama titled Mayday. Ajay is set to direct the legend for the first time. He will also be seen playing a pilot in the film while Bachchan’s character is still under wraps. Not just this, Ajay will be donning a third hat in this project as he is producing the film under his banner, Ajay Devgn Films. The film will go on floors this December in Hyderabad.
Film analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about it:

Interestingly, Ajay is also playing a pilot in his upcoming film, Bhuj: The Pride Of India, which is set around the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971. The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, among others and is set to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar soon.
As for Mr. Bachchan, he was last seen in Gulabo Sitabo. While he is shooting for his reality show, Kaun Banega Crorepati now, he has an interesting line-up of films that include Chehre, Brahmastra and Jhund.
Coming back to this film, I am super excited for this reunion and can’t wait to know more about the project!
