Actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn, who is busy promoting Shivaay, says he has not taken a penny for this film.
“My budget of the film is as much as the Ajay Devgn film should be but I have not taken a penny. I have put everything in the film so that does not put pressures on the market of distributors and I felt that’s fair enough,” Ajay told IANS.
However, he also says it’s tiring to be a producer.
“It’s tiring to be a producer but I enjoy the pressure. Fortunately, I had a good team to handle that pressure. Acting comes very easy to me but it’s the production part which is taxing,” he said.
Asked if he felt Shivaay would be a blockbuster, Ajay said that he was just focusing on connecting with the audience.
“I don’t know what a blockbuster is, but we have managed to make a good film and it’s got a very strong emotional connect. So I am sure with this kind of scale and emotions going right, I think it should work,” he said.
Shivaay is Ajay’s second directorial after U Me Aur Hum. The film is set to release this Diwali and has been shot in the Balkan mountains of Bulgaria as well in Hyderabad and Uttarakhand in India.
