Ajay Devgn starrer Kaithi remake gets on floor today, gets new title ‘Bholaa’

Ajay Devgn had last year announced that he will star in the remake of Tamil action thriller Kaithi, which starred Karthi in the lead. However, fans have been excited about other details about the action thriller. Nevertheless, now, as per the recent update, Kaithi’s Bollywood remake has ultimately hit the floors today. In fact, the producers have also given a new title to the film  as Bholaa.

According to a report of Pinkvilla, Ajay had preponed the shooting of the Kaithi remake and will begin on it from mid-January. “Ajay had given dates for another movie, a mystery thriller-drama (and the remake of a superhit south movie). This was the sequel of another movie that Ajay had acted in earlier. The mahurat of the film was to happen on January 7, followed by Kaithi’s mahurat a couple of days later. But the shoot of that movie got postponed due to various reasons. Instead of wasting those dates, Ajay asked his team to shift them for Kaithi – which was to be shot from mid-January anyways. While the Tamil film is written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, Ajay’s movie is being directed by Dharmendra and will be a completely fresh take, very different from the original Kaithi – however, keeping the core in mind of the prisoner-cop relationship. Much of the screenplay has been changed from the original,” Pinkvilla wrote, quoting a source.

The report also added that the first schedule of Bholaa will be shot in Mumbai and will have the least unit set given the COVID circumstance in the nation. “Ajay is personally looking into the script and pre-production being a director himself and Kaithi promises to be one of his best movies till date – a true masala entertainer with gripping action and intense drama,” Ajay was quoted telling.
