Ajay Devgn says his next project 'Sons Of Sardaar' is a war drama based on the Battle of Saragarhi and will match the grandeur of Hollywood period drama '300'.
The 46-year-old actor is currently prepping for his directorial venture 'Shivaay'. He will start shooting for
'Sons of Sardaar' once he wraps it up.
"Need ur best wishes for Sons Of Sardaar, will match the scale of Hollywood war film 300 and based on epic Battle of
Saragarhi," Devgn posted on Twitter.
The Battle of Saragarhi was fought on September 12, 1897, by 21 Sikhs of the fourth Battalion of the Sikh Regiment.
This would not be the first time Ajay will portray a historic character. His role as freedom fighter Bhagat Singh in 'Legend of Bhagat Singh' won him the National award.
'Sons Of Sardaar' will hit theatres in Diwali 2017.
