The 47-year-old actor is all set to star in contemporary romcom, also produced by Ranjan, after a spell of action films and out-and-out comedies.

He will be seen in an all-new avatar that will resonate with the youth of today.

Talking about Devgn's character, Ranjan said in a statement, "The way I see it, it is the side of Ajay that comes most naturally to him. His uber-cool personality in real life has seldom been explored. There is a subtlety in his humour that blends perfectly with my writing."

The film, which will have a quirky take on urban relationships, will be helmed by editor of the upcoming film Jagga Jasoos, Akiv Ali, marking his directorial debut.

Ali and Devgn have previously worked together in Milan Luthria's 2010 gangster flick Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai

Devgn was last seen in Shivaay, which was also directed by the actor.
