After featuring in comedies like Golmaal and Sunday, Ajay Devgn returns to action movies with the remake of a Malayalam film.
The actor-producer has bought the rights to produce the Hindi remake of Puthiya Mukham, which had Malayalam superstar Prithviraj in the lead.
Golmaal director Rohit Shetty will wield the megaphone for the yet-to-be titled Hindi remake.
"I have seen Puthiya Mukham three times. Ajay and I have been wanting to do a hardcore action film for the last three years. At last, we are doing it," said Shetty whose last last action film was Zameen.
Released in 2003, Zameen starred Ajay with Abhishek Bachchan and Bipasha Basu.
