Actor Ajay Devgn says he decided to use a new genre of action in his new film “Shivaay” as never seen in a Bollywood film so far.
Son of veteran action choreographer Veeru Devgan, says he was bored of the action sequences in the present crop of Bollywood films.
“Action comes quite easy to me once I decide and I plan. This time I decided to execute… I’m bored and fed up of action which we see in our films. I needed to take a step ahead,” Ajay, who plays the lead role in Shivaay said.
The actor adds that he rarely uses body doubles and that is the reason why it was tough shooting for “Shivaay”. “But it went off well. You keep getting injured, but there was nothing major,” he added.
“Shivaay” is Ajay’s second directorial venture after the 2008 romantic drama “U Me Aur Hum”.
The 47-year-old actor also believes that it would have been difficult to make a film like “Shivaay” five years ago.
“It would have been tougher to make this film five years ago but now we have access to visual effects and modern techniques to mix live shooting. It has to be shot right, it has to be shot at the right locations and then you enhance it. Five years ago, it wouldn’t have been possible,” he said.
The movie marks the acting debut of Sayyeshaa Saigal, the grand-niece of actor Dilip Kumar and Polish actress Erika Kaar.
“Shivaay” is scheduled to release on October 28. – CINEWS
