I hope YRF isn't trying to give a huge launch pad for Ahaan Pandey and making this film. If they are casting him as the hero of the film and Ajay Devgn as the villain, then I assume that they want to give him a grand debut.
180cr is a hefty budget and majority of the crowd would be for Ajay Devgn, not for Ahaan. They should have signed a bigger young star to cash in and given a smaller film for Ahaan to debut. I just hope they don't plan to make Ahaan as the poster boy for this picture.
Since they are planning a franchise out of this film, it will be interesting to see how Ajay Devgn's character plays out. Will he be a villain like Thanos and come in multiple films or is he like the villains from Dhoom where the police officer is the same but the villains keep changing.
Bollywood needs a good superhero film and other than the Krrish films, there is nothing for us to show. This film, if well made, could start a trend of more ambitious, sci-fi, superhero films in Bollywood. A good release date and this film has chances of being Ajay's biggest grosser.
