Fans of the Ajay Devgan-Rajkumar Santoshi combo are counting the days left for their latest hard-hitting venture, Halla Bol, to hit the screens. Well, we do not blame them, keeping the previous track record of the team in mind. Just to recall, the two have given us movies like, Lajja (2001), The Legend Of Bhagat Singh (2002) and Khakee (2004), all of which are standout examples and need no discussions.
Now that their Halla Bol is ready for release (December 21), the actor-director duo is already focused on their next project, Ashoka The Great. And before the comparisons are drawn with Shahrukh Khan's Asoka (2001), the two times National Award winning actor, (true to his on-screen image) clarifies that there is no comparison with SRK's Asoka because both the movies are starkly different as starts after the Kalinga war.
Trust the man of few words to end all the debate with a matter-of-fact single sentence!
