New Delhi: Ajay Devgn is all set to portray the role of Chanakya in the movie directed by Neeraj Panday.

The director is known for films like Special 26 and Baby and the duo is collaborating for the first time. The actor says he is excited about the new project. Ajay Devgn stated, "I am truly looking forward to playing Chanakya. I've followed Neeraj Pandey's work closely and I know Neeraj will tell this story with the clarity and passion with which it needs to be told," as reported by news agency PTI. However, it is not clear that who will play the role of Chandragupta Maurya in the film.

Many shades of Chanakya's life story, for instance how he assisted Chandragupta Maurya in establishing the Mauryan emperor but all the legends credit Chanakya's masterplan in overthrowing the Nanda Empire.

Even earlier an adaptation of the life of Chanakya has been made. In 1977, Telugu film Chanakya Chandragupta adapted their story with Akkineni Nageswara Rao and NT Rama Rao in lead roles. Even TV shows have depicted Chandragupta Maurya and Chanakya's tale too.

Raid was Ajay Devgn's last movie and he will be next seen in Indra Kumar's Total Dhamaal. He is also producing Helicopter Eela, starring his wife Kajol.
