Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi starrer and Milan Luthria directorial venture ‘Baadshaho’ is creating a lot of buzz after the release of its poster and teaser. Luthria, who is returning to the big screen with “Baadshaho”, says he is not afraid of the film’s comparisons being made with his previous film “Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai”.

The director says the setting of the film is completely different from that of the 2010 hit.“Even if people feel the hangover of ‘Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai’ looking at ‘Baadshaho’ it’s ok.

I don’t fear that comparison (referring to story and recreating the success of the film) as both the stories are completely different,” Milan said.“ One was a gangster film about the rise and fall of two gangsters, this (‘Baadshaho’) is an action drama film about the six main characters and the heist that takes place against the backdrop of 1975 Emergency period,” he says.

Milan says he is happy to reteam with Ajay and Emraan.“It was special to work with Ajay and Emraan again, who transformed themselves for the film. Also, it was special working with Vidyut Jammwal, Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta and Sanjay Mishra. We have designed special looks for each of them.”
