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 Devgan, 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 starer.
