The makers of Shivaay are doing everything possible to create buzz around their film which is set to clash with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil on Diwali. The film has been producer and directed by Ajay Devgn. And when it is all in the family, Kajol has chosen her husband over close friend KJo, in lending support to Shivaay.
Speaking about the film Kajol said: “I think it’s really amazing to see the kind of response we received for the trailer. Thankfully, we have a very nice product (Shivaay) in front of us.” She was speaking at the screening of Parched on Monday. “I think the film will speak for itself and is going to be better than the trailer”, Kajol added.
Shivaay, which also stars Sayyeshaa Saigal and Erika Kaar will hit the screens on October 28. Kajol was also full praise for Leena Yadav’s directorial Parched which stars Radhika Apte. Parched has also been produced under Ajay Devgn’s home production, and will release on September 23.
Ajay Devgn ran into a spat with KRK when he accused him of allegedly getting Rs. 25 lakhs from Karan Johar to bad mouth Shivaay. While most of the industry kept silent on the conflict, Shivaay’s song ‘Bolo Har Har’ and the positive reviews it received, did manage to give some sigh of relief to its makers. Ahead of the release of its second song ‘Darkhaast’, the team in order to keep the excitement soaring, released a teaser of the song, crooned by Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan. Music lovers are already awaiting its release on Thursday, since it’ll bring back Sunidhi after a long time.
Whether or not Shivaay will sustain the storm called Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, is awaited to be seen. Since Karan Johar is also playing all his cards carefully, the songs and promo of ADHM have also left the viewers excited. Diwali is surely going to be a tough weekend at the box office.
