By Bollywood Hungama News Network

Ajay Devgan is serious about changing his on-screen image. Known [and applauded] for intense and action roles, Ajay is trying his hand at a love story in his directorial debut U ME AUR HUM. Of course, he continues to act in comic entertainers like GOLMAAL, SUNDAY and GOLMAAL RETURNS, which explore his funny side. But, for the first time in his career, he's working with one of the masters of comedies, Priyadarshan.

Priyan, who has made an indelible contribution to Akshay Kumar's career, courtesy films like HERA PHERI, GARAM MASALA, BHAGAM BHAG and BHOOL BHULAIYAA, will direct Ajay in producer Kumar Mangat's [OMKARA, NO SMOKING, SUNDAY, ONE TWO THREE] next venture. Reportedly, the project will also feature Kajol and Abhishek Bachchan in pivotal roles.

“Yes, Ajay is confirmed for the project, but not Kajol or Abhishek. We're in talks with an actor; in fact, we do have three/four choices. Ditto for the leading lady. Only after we confirm the dates of the actors will we announce their names,” Kumar Mangat confirms.

Meanwhile, the enterprising producer is extremely confident of Ashwani Dhir's [ONE TWO THREE] abilities and has signed him for three more projects. There's another project with Rohit Shetty on the anvil, after SUNDAY.
