Ajay Devgn-starrer Shivaay had an opening collection of Rs 10.24 cr. The film had a box office clash with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which had better numbers. But, Shivaay stayed strong at single screens/mass circuits, unlike ADHM. But will the collections get better on its day 2, is what we need to wait for.

Director-actor Ajay Devgn’s film also stars Sayyeshaa Saigal, Erika Kaar and Abigail Eames. Ajay’s last release Drishyam had collected Rs 5.8 crore on the first day, which Shivaay has certainly beaten. Shivaay has received mixed reviews from critics. And not to forget, KRK’s reviews for the film.
Trade experts are optimistic that Shivaay will make a huge impact at the box office and the film may pick up in days to come. This Diwali release might get better collections after the festive season. With no major release next week, Shivaay is likely to witness a considerable collection in the coming days.

About Shivaay’s story and performance by Ajay Devgn in the film, The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta wrote, “Ajay Devgn has played father to a little girl before, and done a serviceable job of it ( ‘Main Aisa Hi Hoon’). He is, in fact, quite good around kids generally (‘Raju Chacha’). His first film as director tried exploring the thorny path those afflicted with Alzheimer’s have to tread: it may not have been all the way successful, but it was a brave choice of subject. And he is one star who’s never been afraid of underplaying because that’s how real actors roll.”
