Ajay Devgn, nephew Aaman Devgan onboard Abhishek Kapoor's next film
Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor has been quite off the radar after Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui (2021).

Interestingly, the film is said to star Ajay Devgn and mark the acting debut of his nephew Aaman Devgan as well. Here's everything we know.
Why does this story matter?
- Ajay Devgn is a bonafide superstar in his own right. He is one of the few actors who are not only commercially bankable but also have pleased critics.
- He is loved by people across the spectrum, and he has had a great 2022, too. Of five releases, three were blockbusters.
- Devgn's latest Drishyam 2 shattered many box office records and emerged as a moneyspinner.
More details about untitled film
The Kapoor directorial is yet to be titled, and a source told Pinkvilla the director is exploring the action-adventure genre, which is new to him and is pushing him into untapped territory. They stated, "He is very excited to take the film on floors. He launches Aaman Devgan with the film, and it's an exciting space to tap on at this point of time."
Touted to be a high-octane action film
As per the source, the film will feature high-octane action sequences and is being mounted on a "big scale." It will be set in a unique world, too, and it is scheduled to go on floors in the next few months.
