Ajay flies back from Bangkok for Singham 2 workshop

It’s Singham time for Action Jackson! Ajay Devgn who usually does one film at a time suddenly finds his date diary clogged with commitments this year, so much so that he has left Prabhu Dheva behind in Bangkok and returned to Mumbai for a swig of Singham.

While the Action Jackson (yes, the film is still titled that!) director Prabhu Dheva has stayed back in Bangkok, Ajay Devgn who was shooting for a long spell for the film has flown back to Mumbai for a script reading and intensive rehearsal session for his best-friend Rohit Shetty‘s Singham 2.

Devgn joined his Singham co-actors Kareena Kapoor and Amole Gupte for what turned out to be an immensely revealing bout of pre-shooting preparation. While the film’s leading lady Kareena Kapoor and the film’s arch-villain Amole Gupte are no strangers to acting workshops, Ajay Devgn is a notorious switch-off-switch-on actor. Apparently, the last time he indulged himself in an acting workshop was when he did Zakham with Mahesh Bhatt and Vishal Bhardwaj’s Omkara.

But why the need for acting workshops for a full-on masala action film? Apparently, Singham 2 is far less masala and much more meaningful than Singham. Says a source close to the project, “From the outside it may look like another Rohit Shetty-Devgn fun and masti film. But Singham 2 is not a routine khaki-‘wordy’ drama about a cop doing heavy dialogue-baazi. This cops’ film will look at the burning issues in the country.”

Amole Gupte is all praise for Rohit Shetty, Ajay Devgn and Kareena. “It’s all a new sur, a new rhythm of working for me. The writer Farhan (from the Sajid-Farhan duo) is such a terrific storyteller. It would be erroneous to presume that a commercial film doesn’t demand much preparation. You’ll be surprised at how much concentration an actor needs to get the language of a massy film right.”

Apparently, Ajay Devgn will take his character cop act as Singham Bajirao to another level in Singham 2. An actor from the film reveals, “Singham was a remake of a Tamil film. Singham 2 is an original script. There is no point in making another anti-establishment cop film. Rohit will look at all the grim happenings in the country since the Nirbhaya incident.”

Also, Singham 2 would have no songs and no item numbers, a first for a Rohit Shetty films, though Devgn, Kareena and Amole Gupte are no strangers to the realistic space in cinema.
