The fall-out with Akshay Kumar has gravitated filmmaker Neeraj Pandey towards Ajay Devgn which is not a bad thing at all.
Pandey who had a noisy fall-out with Kumar allegedly over profit shares for their co-productions,has been lying low for two years. He is now back in the reckoning, this time with a grand historical, his first.

If sources are to be believed Pandey is producing and directing a bio-pic on the 3rd century thinker, philosopher, Chanakya. Sources say Pandey will spare no expenses to make this historical a lavish affair.

Devgn who has just completed a historical costume drama Tanhaji will spend considerable time preparing to play Chanakya. Incidentally, Dr Chandraprakash Diwedi who has made an outstanding serial for Doordarshan on Chanakya is currently making another history Prithiviraj Chauhan starring Akshay Kumar.
