Ajay Devgn is all set to take the silver screen by storm yet again, with his upcoming film Bholaa, the official Hindi remake of the 2019 Tamil film, Kaithi. The upcoming film will see Ajay don multiple hats, including that of director, lead star and producer as well. The makers recently launched the second teaser of the film at an event in Mumbai recently. At the event Ajay spoke of how the current year seems to be looking swell for the Hindi film industry, with many highly anticipated releases awaited in 2023.
During the launch event, Ajay was questioned about how both Bholaa and his upcoming film Maidaan were anticipated releases of the year. Pathan, which will see Shah Rukh Khan return to the big screen in a leading role after more than four years, is also one of the biggest releases of the year.
Ajay said “When Drishyam 2 released, I spoke of how the Hindi film industry needed more films, which have the potential to be superhits. After the pandemic hit, the industry had definitely cooled down. So audiences need to be reminded how fun it is to experience films in theatres yet again.
So let’s keep our fingers crossed. My wish is that whichever films get released, they become super duper hits, because our industry is one. For instance Pathaan is about to be released, and the advance booking (numbers) for the same are fantastic, which definitely made history. I am wholeheartedly pleased about this and I tell everyone that we should be very very happy about this”.
Pathan’s advance bookings had begun on January 20, and the film had recorded record numbers in terms of advance bookings. The film, which also stars John Abraham and Deepika Padukone, is set to release on January 25.
Bholaa will hit the silver screens on March 30.
