The winning combination of Once Upon A Time In Mumbai -
producer Ekta Kapoor, director Milan Luthria and actor Ajay Devgn -
are expected to team up again. Ekta and Milan's next film, like
Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, is also a period film, about a
controversial actress who had a titillating career and who ended up
in the porn industry. The makers have confirmed Vidya Balan to
enact the principal role, while Milan is keen to cast Ajay for the
main lead. The film is titled A Dirty Picture.
"One of the reasons why I am keen to have Ajay in the film is
because the women audience reacted very well to his romantic scenes
in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. A lot of people feel that
Ajay can leave a strong impression in romantic roles too, though he
has been slotted in action and intense roles. He's my first choice
for this role," Milan states.
Milan begins filming A Dirty Picture in February next
year. Two more male characters are in the process of finalization.
Rajat Aroraa, who had penned the much-acclaimed script of Once
Upon A Time In Mumbai, is scripting A Dirty Picture
