Ajay's Raw Action Return!

Blame it on Salman Khan. His cop flick has vaulted khakee to cult status, and other actors too are eager to follow in the successful steps of the Dabangg dude.

Cases in point: Aamir Khan who essays a cop in Reema Kagti's film and Ajay Devgn who enacts a fearless police officer in Rohit Shetty's Singham.

Shetty and Devgn may have served up chuckles/ giggles/ laughs/ guffaws/ smiles / whatever with the Golmaal series and All The Best, though this time around, they intend to pack quite a punch. Hah, quite literally, considering that Singham will witness Devgn in a high octane action avatar, scorching the streets of Goa in the movie produced by Reliance Entertainment.

Incidentally, Devgn is quite delighted over the remake of the South grosser too, since it marks his return to screen skirmishes after a hiatus of eight years. Devgn is certain that the film will connect to the common man owing to the "simple narrative and terrific action."

States Devgn excitedly in a newspaper comment,"This film is about men and Singham, will witness the return of hardcore action and machismo, with a lot of super dialogues also thrown in for good thrills."

The flick that ushers South star Kajal Aggarwal into Hindi cinebiz, also boasts of indigenous stunt action provided entirely by Indian professionals. Shetty, former assistant to Veeru Devgn, surely has a grip on the action agenda.

Swimming against the ride prevalent of hiring top notch Hollywood stunt directors, Shetty states in a tabloid quote, "I haven't used a single foreign fighter or imported any equipment from abroad for Singham. My hero Bajirao Singham (Devgn) is a simple police officer who toes the line till he is provoked by Prakash Raj to show his ferocious side. When he does that all hell breaks loose."

Adds Shetty significantly, "I wanted Ajay to be showing the kind of raw action that was earlier a part of our films. We have sidelined this aspect because of our sudden affinity for the action shown in Western movies."
