Ajay to bring back Haji Mastan

Malik with his restrained yet powerful mode of speaking, highly expressive eyes and the lips stylishly holding the cigarette intact as he speaks is still fresh in our minds.

The don from the blockbuster 'Company' could not have become such a high impact character if it was not Ajay Devgan who had done it.

A character which can be another feather in the crown of this wonderful Bollywood actor is in the pipeline.

Ajay has been fixed for the role inspired from the life of the late Mumabi gangster Haji Mastan in a movie about the underworld of the city in the 80s.

The film titled as 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbai' to be directed by Milan Luthria will be produced by Ekta Kapoor and Suniel Shetty.

The director and the producers were adamant on having Ajay Devgan for the role of Haji Mastan as they felt his physical characteristics matched that of the don perfectly.

It is heard that Ajay and Milan Luthria share a fantastic rapport as they know each other for a very long time and because of Ajay being the hero of Milan's debut film- 'Kachche Dhaage' and another film 'Chori Chori'.

The real life based role when narrated is said to have impressed the versatile actor so much that he made the decision immediately to take up the character and be part of the gangster movie.

The story of the movie takes place at a time when Haji Mastan and Varadharajan Mudhaliar ruled the underworld of Mumbai and Dawood Ibrahim was still a young ambitious gangster.

Emraan Hashmi will be playing the character of Dawood Ibrahim.
