Mumbai: `Singham` starring action hero Ajay Devgn is all set to hit the theatres this Friday. Devgn plays a Maharashtrian cop in the Rohit Shetty flick and it seems this has prompted MNS Chief Raj Thackeray to ask the star to hold a special screening of the film before it’s day of release.
Talking to a tabloid, a source confirmed the news and said, "Raj Thackeray wants to watch the film, and Ajay is trying his best to arrange a special screening for him."
Ajay plays Bajirao Singham, an honest police officer who is hell bent on resurrecting the deteriorating socio-political situation despite opposition from the antagonists.
"Since the film has really worked in Tamil, Raj Thackeray is keen to see how the janata in Maharashtra has been portrayed in the film," added the source.
The politician had previously asked Aamir Khan to organize a special screening of his adult comedy `Delhi Belly` for his friends. And the actor was more than happy to do so. And now its Ajay’s turn.
"This is not an attempt to publicise the film. But when a top politician in the city expresses his desire to watch it, you definitely have to respect that," the source said.
It will be interesting to hear Raj’s feedback after watching the film, for he will, get to see Ajay fighting corrupt politicians in `Singham`.
