Ajay Devgn’s Kaithi remake renamed as Bholaa, film goes on the floors with minimum crew

Last year Ajay Devgn made headlines after he announced the remake of Tamil action thriller Kaithi starring Karthi in the lead. Ajay will play the protagonist in the film, and his fans have been waiting for the further details about the action thriller. According to a recent update, Kaithi’s Bollywood version has finally hit the floors. In fact, the film’s title has been changed by the producers to Bholaa.

Earlier it was reported that Ajay has postponed the shooting of the Kaithi remake and will begin working on it in mid-January. “Ajay had given dates for another movie, a mystery thriller-drama (and remake of a superhit south movie). This was the sequel of another movie that Ajay had acted in earlier. The mahurat of the film was to happen on January 7, followed by Kaithi’s mahurat a couple of days later. But the shoot of that movie got postponed due to various reasons. Instead of wasting those dates, Ajay asked his team to shift them for Kaithi – which was to be shot from mid-January anyways. While the Tamil film is written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, Ajay’s movie is being directed by Dharmendra and will be a completely fresh take, very different from the original Kaithi – however, keeping the core in mind of the prisoner-cop relationship. Much of the screenplay has been changed from the original,” a source was quoted as saying.

According to the source, the first schedule of the Kaithi remake called Bholaa would be shot in Mumbai with a minimum unit set due to the state’s COVID scenario. “Ajay is personally looking into the script and pre-production being a director himself and Kaithi promises to be one of his best movies till date – a true masala entertainer with gripping action and intense drama,” Ajay was quoted saying.
