Runway 34 marks on-screen reunion of Amitabh Bachchan & Ajay Devgn after 9 yrs; Big B recalls association with Veeru Devgan
The 79-year-old informed that he has had a ‘very long association’ with the ‘Singham’ star which began with his action choreographer-father Veeru Devgan.
Talking about Devgan’s contribution to Hindi Cinema, Bachchan Sr took a trip down the memory lane to recall the times they’ve worked together when the veteran actor started his career.
Devgan, who also was a director, is known for planning the brilliant action sequences in more than 200 Bollywood films. He has served as an Action Director for Bachchan’s notable movies such as ‘Dostana’ (1980), ‘Mr Natwarlal’ (1979), ‘Shahenshah’ (1988), ‘Pukar’ (1983), ‘Inquilaab’ (1984), ‘Aakhree Raasta’ (1986), ‘Khoon Pasina’ (1977), among others.
Soon after, the ‘Golmaal’ actor also joined Bachchan with a new hashtag – ’34 Seconds With Ajay Devgn’.
In a 34-second-long video as the hashtag suggests, Devgn shared why the movie was named ‘Runway 34’. He said, it is like the runway of life with “zero visibility, no vision, dangerous brace for impact.”
Besides Bachchan and Devgn, the movie also features Rakul Preet Singh, Boman Irani, Aakanksha Singh, Angira Dhar and Ajey Nagar (Carry Minati).
‘Runway 34’ is directed and produced by Devgn. This is the actor’s second directorial venture since ‘Shivaay’ in 2016.
Devgn shared why he chose the cast of the upcoming film. He said, “Amitji (Bachchan) is a legend, Rakul looked very real as a co-pilot, and Boman is terrific.”
The co-producers include Kumar Mangat Pathak, Vikrant Sharma, Sandeep Harish Kewlani, Tarlok Singh Jethi, Hasnain Husaini and Jay Kanujia.
Set to hit theatres on April 29, the film will clash with Tiger Shroff and Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer ‘Heropanti 2’.
