Kajol was last seen with Ajay Devgan in U Me Aur Hum (2008), which was also directed by him.
Now the real-life couple will likely be seen together in a remake of 20th Century Fox’s Date Night.
There’s word that Kajol is pregnant and while that will definitely delay things, it’s certain that this will be the first film she acts in after her delivery.
“Fox Star Studios has approached Kajol and Ajay for the film,” confirmed a well placed source.
“Date Night has Steve Carell and Tina Fey. It is an action comedy about a couple struggling with their lives and marriage till.
A visit to a trendy restaurant results in a case of mistaken identity, and then starts a non-stop adventure.
The Hollywood film releases on April 9. Both Ajay and Kajol saw the film last Friday afternoon, after which they confirmed their intention to go ahead with the remake.”
The source added that Fox Star was convinced that Date Night would translate well into a Bollywood masala film and were particularly keen on casting Ajay and Kajol together. “There is a possibility that Ajay may buy the rights of the film. A lot also depends on how Kajol wants to conduct her career after she delivers her second baby,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ajay is busy completing Garam Hawa and Raajneeti before he starts working on Golmaal 3 towards the end of this month. “He will only start planning his next film after Golmaal 3 releases in Diwali this year. The Bollywood remake of Date Night will go on the floors sometime next year.” While Ajay Devgan remained unavailable for comment, his spokesperson said, “Yes, they saw the film and loved it. But it’s too early to say anything more at the moment.”
