Ignore all the careless whispers about Karan Johar signing Ajay Devgan for his next film.
Ajay had been approached by the Johars for a song-less thriller to be directed by Karan's assistant Soham Shah. But Karan himself is planning an epic period film with his favourite Shah Rukh Khan.
Shah Rukh reserved his dates for the project from November. Before that he'll complete Yash Chopra's underproduction film and Ashutosh Gowariker's "Swades".
Interestingly Karan's next project seems to be the third of Shah Rukh's period movie trilogy after "Devdas" and Yash Chopra's next film. Remember his bad-man trilogy "Baazigar", "Darr" and "Anjaam" in the 1990s?
