"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 as well.
