Versatility never ends when we talk about the upcoming box office film “Shivaay”. The movie is unique in all elements from music to the story. Actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn has signed creative talent for his movie Shivaay. From signing Sayesha Saigal in lead portray to the singing of title track of Shivaay from Sukhwinder Singh, now Mithoon the popular music composer is weaves the sentiments in the rhythm of his music. Ajay is impressed with Mithoon’s work and says working with him is like creating memories.
”Shivaay” is an action thriller but I roped in Mithoon to weave sentiments into the musical score because he is probably the only music composer I know who plays with emotions in his music. He continues to set benchmarks. Every moment is a memory while working with him,” Ajay said in a statement.
The musical score of ‘Shivaay’ has hit the right note with soundtracks by artists like Mohit Chauhan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Kailash Kher, Arijit Singh and Badshah. Mithoon also lauded Ajay saying that he is a “great master director and understands even the small nuances“.
”Shivaay” has been one of my challenging projects so far but I’m pleased with the positivity the music of the film has earned for itself. The music of this film took over a year to complete and it was amazing to see how involved Ajay was from the day of inception until the day of completion.”
Mithoon said, “With “Shivaay”, Ajay was also very clear that he wanted me to not only do the songs but also the background score, a first for me.“
Despite Mithoon’s harmony in music, Ajay Devan himself has not taken any penny for his role in the movie. “My budget of the film is as much as the Ajay Devgan 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 it’s tiring to be a producer.
“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 has been shot in the Balkan mountains of Bulgaria as well in Hyderabad and Uttarakhand in India.
The film is scheduled to be released on October 28, 2016, on the booming blast of lighting, “Diwali” with Karan Johar’s big banner movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Let’s see next week which is going to shine more at the box office.
