Ajay Devgn is all set to don the directorial hat for his ambitious project 'Shivaay'.Earlier he had gone the Hollywood way and had launched the film's first look 18 months in advance.
Due to several reasons the film kept delaying but now we hear that it will hit the shooting floors from 7th November. Buzz is that the first schedule will kick-start in Landour, a small cantonment town contiguous with Mussoorie after which the cast and crew will then fly to Hyderabad and finally, to Bulgaria where major portions will be shot.
Sayesha Saigal, who is the grand niece of Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu has been roped in to play the female lead in the film. Popular British child actor Abhigail Eames will essay the role of Ajay's daughter.
Reportedly 'Shivaay' has Ajay play the role of a convicted prisoner, who relives his life after getting out of the jail, with some mystical and mythological twist and eventually he will bring down an evil empire.
The movie is slated for Diwali 2016 release and will clash at the box office with Karan Johar's 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
