Actor Ajay Devgn, son of veteran action choreographer Veeru Devgan, says he was bored of the action sequences in Bollywood films. And that’s why he has tried to up the ante in his upcoming directorial ‘Shivaay’, which also sees him as the lead actor.

“Action comes quite easy to me once I decide and I plan. This time I decided to execute… I’m bored and fed of action, which we see in our films. I needed to take a step ahead,” Ajay told IANS. The actor, who is known for his action sequences in films, says he rarely uses body double and that is why it was tough shooting for ‘Shivaay’.

“But it went off well. You keep getting injured, but there was nothing major,” he added. ‘Shivaay’ is Ajay’s second directorial venture after the 2008 romantic drama ‘U Me Aur Hum’. The 47-year-old actor also believes that it would have been difficult to make a film like ‘Shivaay’ five years ago.

“It would have been tougher to make this film five years ago. It’s just the visual effects and also the mixing of live shooting. It has to be shot right, it has to be shot at the right locations and then you enhance it. Five years ago, it wouldn’t have been possible,” he said. The movie marks the acting debut of Sayyeshaa Saigal, who is the grandniece of veteran actor Dilip Kumar.

Shivaay, ADHM: Clash of the Titans!

Ajay Devgn and Karan Johar are gearing up for a clash as their upcoming movies ‘Shivaay’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ both are set to be released on the same day this Diwali, says ANI. “The audience gets divided. Eventually, what will happen is, we are not talking about the first day.

It is a pre-Diwali day and we don’t expect a very big number because people are busy,” Ajay said, according to a entertainment web portal. “By the time you come to Monday, which is like the first day, audience will know which is a better film and that will take away all the benefits,” he opined. The promotions for ‘Shivaay’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ are going on in full-swing as both are set to hit the screens on October 28.
