On Twitter, Ajay revealed the new title as well as the release date.
He wrote: “MayDay is now Runway 34.
“A high-octane thriller inspired by true events that is special to me, for reasons more than one! #Runway34 – Landing on Eid, April 29, 2022, as promised.”
Along with a series of new posters, Ajay also shared a note about the film.
“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, Aakansha 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.”
In Runway 34, Ajay plays a pilot while Rakul is his co-pilot. Much of the film, as well as Amitabh’s role, have been kept under wraps.
The film marks Ajay’s third directorial.
He previously directed U Me Aur Hum in 2008 and Shivaay in 2016.
