Kaithi, directed and written by Lokesh Kanagaraj (Vikram), chronicled the journey of an ex-convict who decides to meet his daughter for the first time after being released from prison. However, things go awry when he is embroiled in a tussle between police and a drug mafia. Notably, Bholaa was initially supposed to be directed by Devgn's cousin and film editor Dharmendra Sharma (Shivaay, Company).
Devgn has a lot lined up as an actor too. He'll next be seen in Thank God, which will reunite him with his Runway 34 and De De Pyaar De co-actor Rakul Preet Singh. It also stars Sidharth Malhotra and will clash with Akshay Kumar's Ram Setu on October 24. Moreover, Drishyam 2, which co-stars Tabu and Akshaye Khanna, will release on November 18.
