Eros International has announced its collaboration with Ajay Devgn Films for the actor’s next directorial venture Shivaay.
Eros will co-produce with Ajay his most ambitious project yet – Shivaay. Along with directing the film, Ajay will play the lead with debutante actress Sayesha, grand niece of legendary Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu.
Commenting on the association, Sunil Lulla, Managing Director – Eros International Media Ltd said, “We are happy to extend our fabulous relationship with Ajay to Shivaay. With him at the helm, his fans and audiences can be assured of some fantastic action packed drama high on entertainment”.
Ajay Devgn added, “I am delighted that Eros will co-produce Shivaay. Having closely worked with them on several successful projects, I am looking forward to associating with them once again with a great marketing and distribution platform to back it”.
The film is expected to go on floors in January 2015. Touted as one of the most anticipated releases in 2016, the big-ticket action entertainer is slated to release worldwide on 23rd January 2016.
Ajay Devgn’s next directorial venture produced by Eros International and Ajay himself is the hugely ambitious magnum opus Shivaay which is all set to release in January 2016.
Devgn wanted to keep his leading lady under wraps,and not reveal her identity till later, and despite valiant efforts from production to keep her hidden, the snapparazzi and shutterbugs around the set managed to click the fresh debutante heroine while she was doing a photoshoot for the movie.
The lady in question is none other than the grand-niece of Saira Banu and legendary actor Dilip Kumar, she is the daughter of actress Shaheen (leading actress of the 90’s), Sayesha. Yes you read it right, she has been cast as the leading lady opposite Ajay Devgn in his upcoming directorial venture Shivaay which will also see Devgn don the leading actors cap along with being the Director and Producer.
We hear that many actresses from B-Town were eyeing for this very role seeing the scale of the film, but after several round of auditions Sayesha was selected, and when shown to Devgn he zeroed down on her as she fitted the role perfectly!
Well, coming from one of India’s first superstars family, looks like huge expectations are set with Sayesha who has got herself a dream launch vehicle with Devgns Shivaay!
Shivaay is produced by Ajay Devgn Ffilms and Eros International.
