Ajay Devgn who has impressed the Bollywood fandom with his stunts and fine action scenes is all set for his another directorial venture Runway 34. The film will feature Amitabh Bachchan and Rakul Preet Singh in lead roles. Touted as a thrilling drama, the film was previously titled ‘May Day.’
Ajay Devgn who will also be one of the leads in the film shared the new title with various new posters. “MayDay is now Runway 34. A high-octane thriller inspired by true events that are special to me, for reasons more than one! #Runway34 – Landing on Eid, April 29, 2022, as promised,” read the caption of the tweet.
Ajay Devgn also shared a little note about the film. He revealed that the film was inspired by true events. He wrote that all people, once in life, have faced a situation where they have felt that they have all the power for one moment, and in the very next moment felt completely helpless. He said that one could always remember that moment when they felt that they could conquer the world and at the very next moment felt it slip through their hands.
“That ‘storm’ brewing within you, playing with your emotions; tearing you up’ that turbulent ride that makes you ask — is this a nightmare? Or is this real? These are the sentiments associated with Runway 34,” the note added.
Describing his directorial project further Devgn wrote that the film is full of alarming highs and lows, a ‘sense of jubilance and dejection, all within the screenplay.’ He revealed that the script was very special to him and he planned it accordingly.
“I knew I had to make it. What’s also beautiful is that it offered equal opportunities for my co-actors — Amitabh Bachchan ji, Rakul Preet Singh, Boman Irani, Carry Minati, Aakansha Singh, Angira Dhar and my numerous co-actors,” he wrote. He also thanked his crew team for being with him throughout the making of the film, which he called a ‘turbulent journey.’

The film will see Ajay as a pilot and Rakul as his co-pilot, however, Amitabh Bachchan’s character is kept under wraps. The film will be released on April 29, 2022.
