Ajay Devgn's 'Shivaay' shelved due to budget issues?
If the latest buzz in the industry is to be believed then Ajay Devgn's directorial venture and much ambitious project, which stars Saira Banu's grandniece Sayesha in the lead, might be shelved. The actor, who came back from Canada without shooting a single scene of the film — because the snowfall in the city was not up to the mark — has postponed the shoot of the film to October.
In order to utilise this eight-month gap, he has green lighted other projects such as 'Drishyam' to be directed by Nishikant Kamath and Milan Luthria's 'Baadshaho' and will begin shooting for both of them soon.
An insider tells us that the project has been pushed for an indefinite period of time and there are possibilities that it be shelved. "Shivaay is a big budget film and around Rs 8-9 crore have already been spent on extensive research and pre-production. Hence, Ajay is sceptical about starting the project now as he feels that the film might go way over budget."
Producer Krishika Lulla and Ajay Devgn's spokesperson remained unavailable for comment.
Rs 8-9 crore
Apparently this amount has already been spent on extensive research and pre-production of 'Shivaay'
