You can read his full statement here -
Runway 34...is a film inspired by true events. Today as I launch the posters with the release date and new title, I need to share a little something with you.
Without actually revealing anything about the story because it's an emotional, high-octane thriller (naturally, I can't give away the spoilers!), I can tell you what drew me to this movie like a magnet.
Close your eyes and think - each and every one of us must have been in a situation/s in life when we've felt all-powerful for one moment and felt completely helpless the next minute. We've all been through that moment when we've felt we can conquer the world and yet the very next situation has thrown us out of gear. That "storm" brewing within you, playing with your emotions; tearing you up; that turbulent ride that makes you ask – is this a nightmare? Or is this real?
These are the sentiments associated with Runway 34. It's got terrific highs, alarming lows, a sense of jubilance, and dejection, all within the screenplay.
Honestly, letting this script just pass me by, was not even a consideration. I knew I had to make it.
What's also beautiful is that it offered equal opportunities for my co-actors - Amitabh Bachchanji, Rakul Preet Singh, Boman Irani, Carry Minati, Aakanksha Singh, Angira Dhar, and my numerous co-actors.
I also have the most fantastic crew walking alongside me on this turbulent journey.
I'm eager to share other assets with you soon."
Runway 34 will release theatrically on April 29 next year.
This is Ajay's third directorial so far. He'd previously directed the romance U Me Aur Hum (2008) and the action thriller Shivaay (2016).
