Fox STAR Studios to co-produce Ajay Devgan’s next

September 21, 2011

Ajay Devgan 200x215 Fox STAR Studios has announced that it will co-produce Ajay Devgan-starrer rustic comedy “Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola”, which will be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.

Set in Haryana, the film will be co-produced by Fox STAR Studios along with Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures, Ajay Devgan Films and Wide Frame Pictures.

“When Vishal told me that he was looking at creating a comedy and he narrated the script, I was immediately excited and became a part of the project” said Ajay in a statement.

Its star cast will also have Anushka Sharma playing the lead characters and national award-winning filmmaker Bhardwaj will also compose the music for the movie.

“I have had the idea for this comedy in my head for a long time, almost eight years. It’s a totally new genre and completely different from what I have done in my previous seven films.

“I was also missing working with Ajay for some time. He is such a great actor and an even greater human being. I am so much in sync him that the wait to be on the set is killing. As for Anushka, I would say that she is a ball of energy, the harder you throw her the higher she will go. Looking forward to shooting with her,” said Bhardwaj.

Fox STAR Studios produced and distributed films like “My Name Is Khan”, “Khichdi: The Movie”,”Stanley Ka Dabba”, “Dum Maro Dum” and their next is the John Abraham-starrer “Force”.

Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios, said: “We believe the nationwide appeal of this hilariously rustic comedy, the coming together of great talent and a title which raises eyebrows will make this an event film for audiences in 2012.”

Gulzar will write the lyrics.
