Ajay Devgn shortens the length of ‘Shivaay’ to accomodate more shows

Ajay Devgn’s ‘Shivaay‘ that hit the screens on October 28 has a duration of 2 hours and 53 minutes which is a tad too long. So Devgn thought it best to shorten the movie to accommodate more shows in one day. The movie has been shortened by atleast 11 minutes or more.

A source revealed, “After ‘Shivaay’s initial shows, the distributors felt the length was a tad too long. They felt if he tightened it, there could be more shows packed in a day. On Saturday, it was conveyed to the makers with a request to edit it to enhance the viewing experience. Ajay Devgn agreed as it was for the benefit of cine-goers. He immediately got going and deleted some scenes.”

The actor’s spokesperson said, “As we have got a tremendous response from theatres across India, the distributors reached out to us and requested us to adjust the length to better suit the timings, which could lead to more number of shows. The film has been made more pacey, and all theaters will play the abridged version from today.”

We hope this new strategy adopted by the makers helps the film do well at the box office as the collections of the film are not too impressive with Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ leading the box office.
