Ajay Devgan to star as a toon superhero

Mumbai: Actors Ajay Devgan And Kajol are all set to star in their next home production, an animated action movie titled Toonpur ka Superhero to be directed by Canada based Kireet Khurana, and will have music by Anu Malik.

This action animated flick that will feature Ajay in and as Toonpur ka Super Hero is made with an ambitious budget of Rs 40 crores. The film comprises of 70 per cent live animation sequence, on the lines of Who framed Roger Rabbit —where human actors and toons shared screen space.

Ajay Devgan says, "It's a film for everybody, because fun and entertainment today are enjoyed by everybody, but because it's an animation, it has been written with kids in mind."

It's a home production in the true sense of the term with wife Kajol also featuring in it.

But it's their daughter Nysa who's looney about the toons.

Says Kajol, " I'm an avid cartoon watcher, and it's because of my daughter I don't get to watch anything else, but I think it should be good fun. Let's see what i can do out of it.

When asked if her daughter was excited about seeing her parents in an animated film she said, "No, she isn't bothered about that. In fact, she is only interested in meeting the characters of Toonpur."

When asked how will she manage to do that, she is quick to reply " I don't know yet, haven't figured it out but I guess I will just play it by the ear."

With daughter Nysa all excited and wife Kajol as his co-star, Ajay Devgan is on his way to be the next superhero of Bollywood after Hrithik Roshan in Krrish. So what if his villains are cartoons.
