Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha will reportedly be paired in an upcoming romance titled SOS – Son of Sardar to be directed by Ashwini Dheer.
Ajay Devgn and NR Pachisia will co-produce the film, a remake of a Telugu musical comedy Maryada Ramanna.
Pachisia told Mumbai Mirror.
"It is a fresh pairing. Both Ajay and Sonakshi are intense actors and they will surely create magic on screen. Considering it is an action packed love story, we decided to cast a fresh face opposite Ajay. We try to do different things with our projects every time in terms of casting. I am now looking forward to start the film early next year."
Maryada Ramanna (2010) was inspired by Buster Keaton's slapstick and situational comedy film Our Hospitality (1923).
SOS – Son of Sardar (Surprise, surprise!) is set in Punjab.
Sonakshi, 24, who has just one film to her credit so far, is fast becoming one of Bollywood's busiest actress with five projects in hand: Shirish Kunder's Joker with co-star Akshay Kumar, Abbas Mustan's Race 2, Shirish Kunder's Kick with co-star Salman Khan, Prabhu Deva's Rowdy Rathore with co-star Akshay Kumar and Dabangg 2 with Salman Khan.
Three of her upcoming films are remakes of South films. Besides SOS, Kick is a remake of a Telugu film by the same name and Rowdy Rathore is a remake of the Telugu film, Vikramarkudu.
