Salman Khan chose to support team Shivaay over Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Or that’s what it looked like, according to reports. And while the two films continue to fight it out at the box office, ADHM has gained a certain edge. It has also kind of divided Bollywood into groups supporting each film. The latest one to join the list of people lauding Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay is veteran writer Salim Khan. Salman’s father was all praise for Devgn’s directorial, and Devgn cannot thank him any less.

Actor-filmmaker Devgn has now thanked both Salman Khan and Salim Khan for appreciating his latest film and said it always makes a difference.

“Thank you Salim uncle, your appreciation always makes a difference and thank you Salman Khan for all your good wishes,” Ajay tweeted on Tuesday night.

Ajay has acted in, directed and co-produced Shivaay. The film, which released on October 28 before the auspicious occasion of Diwali, saw one of the year’s biggest clash at the box office with filmmaker Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

According to the fifth day profits of both the films, ADHM has raked in Rs 66.38 crore at the box office. Shivaay is slightly behind with Rs 56.96 crore. However, the Ajay Devgn-starrer stands rock steady at the box office despite mixed reviews. It is performing well It earned over Rs 11 crore on Tuesday alone.

Ajay Devgn has returned a director with this movie after eight long years. His last directorial was U Me Aur Hum which tanked at the box-office. But the trade experts are hoping that this action-thriller will not face the same treatment. Shivaay also stars Sayyeshaa Saigal, Erika Kaar, Vir Das and Girish Karnad.
