Ajay Devgn is donning the directorial hat for his ambitious project 'Shivaay'. Earlier the actor had gone the Hollywood way and had launched the film's first look 18 months in advance. Sayesha Saigal, who is the grand niece of Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu plays the female lead in the film.
Apart from 'Shivaay' Ajay also has Milan Luthria's 'Baadshaho'. There were several rumours surrounding this film. But now director Milan Luthria has rubbished all of them.
A report in DNA quoted him as saying, "These rumours are ridiculous. The bottomline is that Ajay's film Shivaay is a weather-controlled project (Devgn was to start shooting from January 2016 in Bulgaria). Ajay called me to say that he has got together the international crew again and requested me if we could start shooting for 'Baadshaho' from February next year. He wants to shoot 'Shivaay' from November 7 till the middle of February next year by which time, 70% of his film will be complete. He needs the snow for 'Shivaay'. As he personally asked me to accommodate my dates because of the weather issue, I immediately agreed. I assured him we would work around it and adjust. In any case Shivaay for me to is like my home production as much as Ajay as he's like family to me.”
