Ajay Devgn teams up with close friend Rohit Shetty to re-make superhit Malayali action film.

Malayalam movies are currently hot with Bollywood when it comes to remakes and the latest to join this bandwagon is Ajay Devgn. The actor - producer has bought the rights of Mollywood action film PUTHIYA MUKHAM for an undisclosed amount, to remake it in Hindi.

PUTHIYA MUKHAM starred Kerala superstar Prithviraj and was one of the biggest hits of last year. The Hindi remake will be produced by Ajay Devgn and directed by Rohit Shetty, marking the return of Ajay as well as Rohit to action films after a spate of successful comedy flicks.

Rohit Shetty says, "I have seen PUTHIYA MUKHAM three times. Ajay and I have been wanting to do a hardcore action film for the last three years. At last, we are doing it!"

Rohit's last action film was ZAMEEN which was a big hit. The talented director is the son of Mr. Shetty, famous stunt master of the 80's and has also worked under Ajay Devgn's father, Veeru Devgan.

The film is scheduled to go on floors by year end or early next year, as Ajay already has his hands full with a diverse set of films releasing this year including like Ashwni Dhir's ATITHI TUM KAB JAOGE?, Prakash Jha's RAAJNEETI, Kireet Khurana's TOONPUR KA SUPERHERO, Priyadarshan's GARAM HAWA, Bunty Lutharia's ONCE UPON A TIME and Rohit Shetty's GOLMAAL 3; that begins shooting this April.
