Actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn, who is busy promoting “Shivaay”, says he has not taken a penny for this film which he has described as having a very strong emotional connect.
“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,” said Ajay.
However, he also says its 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 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.
