Actor Ajay Devgan is all geared up to direct a new film titled ‘Shivay’, under his production banner. The film will be presented by Eros International.

Ajay will play the central role in the film which is going to be an out-and-out action flick. Ajay has been working on the script of the film with a team of writers. It will be shot extensively in Mumbai and hit the floor early next year. The actor set up his production company in 2000, and the first film to be made under the banner was ‘Raju Chacha’, followed by ‘U Me AurHum’, which also marked his directorial debut. Both times, Kajol was his leading lady. However, whether Kajol will star in ‘Shivay’ or not, is yet to be decided.

The title comes from the Sanskrit chant ‘Om Namah Shivay’. The actor also has a tattoo of the same on his chest. 

This will be the actor’s second official directorial venture. A source close to the project said, “Ajay and Eros have a great working equation since the days of ‘Son Of Sardar’, which despite clashing with Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ amassed nearly Rs 140 crore. Now,they are looking forward to working together on ‘Shivay’.”
