Superstar Ajay Devgn recently visited Indore for the trailer launch of his upcoming movie ‘Shivaay’, which seems to have garnered even more attention after the first-look of the film was revealed.

As reported by Box Office India,��Devgn, who was honoured with a Padma Shri earlier this year, has high hopes of the movie and commented saying, “The response we have received so far is phenomenal. Everyone has liked the trailer and the feedback we are getting is very positive. So I am not nervous but I am excited.”

The upcoming project also brings a fresh��face into the limelight in the form of Erika Kaar who plays the female protagonist in the movie. On reasons for this decision, Devgn explained, “I wanted some brilliant actors but someone without preconceived notions. One character demanded a foreign face, so we auditioned and finalised Erika, who has done several television dramas and is a trained actress…”

The ‘Omkara’ (2006) star had taken a sabbatical of two years, in which he dedicated his entire time in the making of this movie, which can be clearly seen from the trailer itself. “I am bored of films that are mediocre” said Devgn, “We have to raise the bar and somebody has to make an effort, and for that you have to face a lot of challenges. I have not worked for two years as I have given all my time and space to ‘Shivaay’ and to the execution of the film.”

‘Shivaay’ is scheduled for release on 28th October.
