Right after Azhar, whilst Emraan Hashmi is gearing up for his third association with the Raaz franchise in a row, Raaz Reboot, we hear that the actor is all set to share screen space once again with none other than superstar Ajay Devgn. Apparently, Emraan has come on board for Milan Luthria‘s Baadshaho, thereby replacing Punjabi superstar Diljit Dosanjh.
Soon after his entry in Bollywood, Diljit bagged some prominent Bollywood films including Baadshaho, the Milan Luthria directorial which was announced almost a year ago. However, now we hear that Diljit has called it quits. Though the reasons are still unknown, speculations have it that it was the remuneration issue that prompted the Punjabi celebrity to walk out of the film. On the other hand, Emraan Hashmi who has replaced him, shared screen space with Ajay Devgn in one of Milan Luthria’s previous directorial, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai which turned out to be a blockbuster. While the details of the film are still being kept under wraps, we hear that the role in question is that of an army officer. It is being said that Baadshaho is a period film, set in the backdrop of the Emergency period and revolves around stolen gold with four major characters getting involved in the theft.
Produced by Milan Luthria in association with T-Series, Baadshaho is slated to go on floor in August – September.
