MUMBAI, Jul 22: We were the first to tell you how Milan Luthria’s next is an emotional drama with action titled Baadshaho, starring one of his favourite actors and people, Ajay Devgn, with whom he has worked with several times earlier. We have now exclusively learnt that the beautiful Shruti Haasan has been cast as one of the lead actresses in the film. We say one as there is also another second lead actress with a prominent role that is yet to be cast. Milan is known to give his actors a look makeover, be it Vidya Balan as Silk Smitha in The Dirty Picture or Ajay Devgn playing Sultan in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. We have learnt that he is working towards doing the same with Shruti. Baadshaho, based on the name of Ajay’s character in the film, is a joint production of Bhushan Kumar with Milan, who is also directing the film, and is slated for release on the Independence Day weekend of 2016.
