A source close to the filmmaker told IANS: "Rajkumar wants to make an out-an-out action film, and Vidyut Jammwal fits the bill perfectly. He will lead the film and soon after 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero' releases, this film will go on floors."
However, more on the project, will be revealed later.
"Right now they are still finalising the rest of the star cast for the film," added the source.
The movie is likely to be produced as well as directed by Santoshi, who is currently busy promoting his "Phata Poster Nikla Hero". It stars Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D'Cruz in the lead.
