When I decided to be an actor, like all the other aspiring actors, I had a dream to work with Mr Bachchan and I am so glad that with this film my dream to share screen space with him will come true."
Mayday is being dubbed as "a thrilling, absolute edge-of-the-seat human-drama". It is said that Ajay will be seen playing a pilot. Details about Big B's character are being kept under wraps.
