Here’s Why Ajay Devgan’s ‘Mayday’ Was Renamed ‘Runway 34’ – Bollywood News

Superstar Ajay Devgan is preparing for the release of his upcoming movie “Runway 34” and these days he is busy with the promotions of the same. Also starring Amitabh Bachchan, Rakul Preet Singh and Boman Irani, the film is an aviation thriller and it is directed by Ajay himself.

The film was originally titled ‘Mayday’ but a few months before its release the makers decided to change it to ‘Runway 34’. While talking to the press during the launch of the second trailer of the film, Ajay explained the reason behind the title change.

The actor said, “When there’s an emergency, you call Mayday. But I don’t think a lot of people could understand that title. The whole story of the movie revolves around a track called Runway 34. Why did the pilot landed the plane on this runway, something that was an impossible task and should not have happened, that’s the story.”

Ajay added, “A well-read person actually asked me the meaning of Mayday. He asked me if the movie was based on Labor Day, so I was a bit scared.” Speaking about the content of the movie, Ajay said, “We showed the aviation industry in a good light. It was not an easy film to shoot. When you watch the movie, you will learn about the problems that pilots, ATC agents and even passengers face when there is a situation like this. This story is not just about turbulence in the air, but also on the ground. That when there’s turmoil in someone’s life, how they get through it.”
