Earlier, it has been reported that Ajay Devgn and Inder Kumar will be collaborating for a movie titled ‘The Big Bull’. According to the reports, it is based upon the infamous financial crime case on stockbroker Harshad Mehta. Kookie Gulati will be directing the movie on the occasion. On asking Ajay Devgn whether he is playing the lead in the movie, Omkara actor has said “In fact, the casting is underway. The team is looking for an established actor, who can pull off the role.”
