Keerthy Suresh who will soon share the screen with Rajinikanth in A R Murugadoss’s next is all set to make her Bollywood debut. The actress will be seen sharing the screen with none other than Ajay Devgn. This upcoming movie will be directed by Amit Sharma.
Sources say that Ajay Devgn will be playing the role of Syed Abdul Rahim in this movie and Keerthy will be seen as Rahim’s wife.
Speaking about her career move, a very happy Keerthy says,’ I’m elated and honoured to be a part of such a great story. This film is a forgotten chapter in Indian history and I am glad that the makers have chosen to tell this story. This is a film that will make each and every Indian proud.’
She goes on to add, ‘I believe this is a story that doesn’t belong to any specific region or a section of the audience. It is a great Indian story that the world should know. With all my past films, I have consciously chosen to do roles that challenge me and add to the narrative of the film. When the makers came to me with this role, I was quite intrigued by it and felt that I would be able to pull it off.’
The actress was also in praise of her co-star Ajay Devgn and even called him as one of the most talented actors in the country.
The movie will go on floors this June and will speak about the Indian football team’s glory from 1950 to 1963. The movie is bankrolled by Boney Kapoor along with Akash Chawla and Arunava Joy Sengupta.
