Ajay is my brother from another mother: Director Milan Luthria

By HT

New Delhi, Aug. 23 -- Director Milan Luthria is the master of the multistarrer. After churning out hits such as Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai (2010) and The Dirty Picture (2011), he is all set to return to the silver screen with the action thriller Baadshaho, starring his "brother from another mother", actor Ajay Devgn.
 
Milan is all praise for the 48-year old actor. "A very strange thing happened recently," says the director. 
 
"I gave an interview, and said that relationships develop and become stronger when the two people involved can comfortably pick up where they left off. Soon after my interview, I was watching an interview of Ajay for Baadshaho, and he said exactly the same thing!" Milan adds, "This is how it has mostly been - the thought is in my head, and Ajay says it."
 
The hit duo has collaborated on Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Chori Chori (2003), and Milan's directorial debut Kachche Dhaage (1999). Milan recalls how Ajay supported him even before he became a director. "He helped me start my first film. I'd visit him on the sets of his other films, too, when he was a big movie star."
 
Ajay's character Bhavaani in Baadshaho is a loyal guy and a bit of a badass. Milan reveals that the film has been in the making for "almost 15 years now". He says, "The idea was discussed when we were working on Kachche Dhaage, and since then, we were waiting for the right time and right cast." Baadshaho releases on September 1.
