Mumbai: Ajay Devgn today said that he has dropped out of Rajkumar Santoshi`s `Power` which starred himself with Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt.

The mahurat took place on a grand scale on `Anant Chaturdashi` in September this year.

"There were lot of issues including date problems," Ajay told reporters.

He said he was committed to do an alternate film for producer Firoz Nadiadwala and director Rajkumar Santoshi, makers of `Power`.

Ajay said he had not shot for the film, during the first schedule which took place in Mumbai in October.

When asked about him refusing Prakash Jha`s `Aarakshan`, Ajay said he was not committed to the film.

"I had not signed it. When Prakash spoke to me about his project on reservations, he was still in the process of scripting," Ajay said.

The actor is currently busy promoting his upcoming home production `Toonpur Ka Superhero` which releases on December 24.

He said his next home production would be a film with Abhishek Bachchan which is tentatively titled `Bol Bachchan` and will be directed by Rohit Shetty.
