Devgn is currently working on the post-production of MayDay.

Yes, you read that absolutely right!
A source in the know tells the publication, “Ajay has this subject in his mind for a long time now and has finally taken the step to bring it to the spectacle. Devgn has shared his vision and basic plot with multiple sets of writers, who are currently working remotely to develop it into a full-fledged screenplay. It is said to be a VFX driven premise with strong emotions and the actor is very excited to explore this world. It is not exactly a period film. However, the outcome of the said project depends on how the final output of script turns out to be.”
The source goes on to add that development is still in the nascent stage, and the future of the project depends on the Covid-19 situation and the restoration of the theatre industry in the coming years. “The estimated budget at the moment is upwards of ₹400 crore (approximately £ 39,268,120.62), and it may even increase as the things start getting more concrete,” the source concludes.
