This will be there 7th collaboration… – Tabu to star in Ajay Devgn’s next after Golmaal Again
Tabu had first starred with Ajay Devgn in the 1994 superhit Vijaypath which won her her first Filmfare Award in the Best Debutant category. The two National Award winners later collaborated in as many as five movies in a course of 23 years. Haqeeqat (1995), Thakshak (1999), Drishyam (2015), Fitoor (2016) and Golmaal Again (2017) were all critically acclaimed films. After doing five movies and working on their sixth one in Golmaal Again, they are all set to collaborate for the seventh time in a rom-com directed by debutant Akiv Ali and produced by Luv Ranjan (of Pyaar Ka Punchnama fame) and Ankur Garg.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, “It’s a unique rom-com and not a love triangle. Ajay and Tabu are not opposite each other and Luv has written the role with Tabu in mind, believing that only she can play the part. Another A-list actress will be cast as Ajay’s love interest.”
During Drishyam, when Tabu was asked about Ajay, she had said, “Ajay and I grew up together. He was my brother’s buddy and every evening he’d drive up in his open jeep while we sat waiting on the bungalow wall. The camaraderie is the same even today. He’s crazy fun and all heart. With Ajay around, it is always a picnic.”
They are currently shooting Golmaal Again which is up for a Diwali 2017 release. Earlier, while talking about not signing comedy films, Tabu had said, “If I am doing a certain kind of cinema that does not mean I hate the other kind. People will talk about only what is working and they get stuck with that. Personally, as an artiste I never do any discrimination. If I am offered a ‘Golmaal 4’, I’ll run and do it. How can people make these assumptions about me?”
