Critics might have given Ae Dil Hai Mushkil an edge over Shivaay but the Ajay Devgn-starrer is going strong at box office. The film has so far collected Rs 70.41 crore, giving tough competition to Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh shared, “#Shivaay Fri 10.24 cr, Sat 10.06 cr, Sun 8.26 cr, Mon 17.35 cr, Tue 11.05 cr, Wed 7.40 cr, Thu 6.05 cr. Total: ₹ 70.41 cr. India biz.”
Shivaay has some breathtaking action sequences and is shot in exotic locations. It has also introduced new actors. Sayyeshaa Saigal, who made her debut in Shivaay, earlier said that working in the film was a learning experience for her.

“For the first time, I saw a film camera on the set. I didn’t have any reference when I went to the set of Akhil (her first Telegu film)… I learned there about the angles and lighting. However, of course, ‘Shivaay’ set up and the unit was much bigger … it was a very big learning experience for me,” she said in an exclusive interview.
Ajay Devgn, who is directing a film after eight long years, took almost two years to complete the film. The film released on October 28 along with the Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer.
