Ajay Devgn who will be seen in Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior, a biopic on Tanaji Malusare who served as one of Shivaji’s generals in the 17th century, will be seen in another biopic as well. According to rumors, Ajay is keen to play Sher Singh Rana, who was convicted for the assassination of Indian dacoit-turned-parliamentarian Phoolan Devi in 2001.
Mid-day quoted its source saying; “What caught Ajay’s attention is the interesting life of Rana, who escaped from Tihar jail in 2004, and claimed to have gone to Afghanistan to bring back the remains of the 12th century Indian ruler, Prithviraj Chauhan, before he was caught in Kolkata in 2006. He also penned a book on his journey, Jail Diary: Tihar Se Kabul-Kandahar Tak. Ajay is likely to start prepping for the film by next year.”
While Ajay has to decide on the director yet, the source adds that he is willing to produce the biopic.
Rana was accused of killing Phoolan Devi at her Delhi residence on July 25, 2001. He was convicted by the Delhi court in 2014 and is currently out on bail.
