Actress Kajol is supporting her husband Ajay Devgn’s forthcoming movie Shivaay which was mired in a controversy with Karan Johar’s upcoming film which is going to be released on the same day as Ajay’s film.
Ajay Devgn stars in and directs Shivaay.
Talking about the film which is directed and co-produced by Ajay himself, 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 in front of us. I think the film will speak for itself and is going to be better than the trailer,” she said at the screening of Parched which has been produced by her husband.
Shivaay also stars Sayyeshaa Saigal and Erika Kaar, and will be released on October 28 clashing with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Kajol, 42, also appreciated Leena Yadav-directed Parched.
“Honestly I didn’t expect that I would love the film so much. I read the script so I knew what it is about. After watching the film, I couldn’t remember the names of the actresses as I was so engrossed into their portrayal. I just came out only with the characters in my head. I think that’s the best compliment for any actor,” she said.
Parched traces the bittersweet tale of four ordinary women and is set in the heart of the parched rural landscape of Rajasthan. The film talks about their struggle with their individual boundaries and features Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla, Adil Hussain and Lehar Khan in leads.
The film is scheduled to release on September 23. – CINEWS
