Ajay Devgn’s magnum opus ‘Shivaay’ is one of the much-awaited movie of the year. The posters the high octane action sequences and the energetic title track has been much loved by the Singham’s fans. But now with the budget of the film rising much higher than expected Eros International who was brought on board to help the action-thriller get more screens has decided to pull out.

Sources revealed, “‘Shivaay’ was pegged to be a Rs 70-crore film with Eros and Pen agreeing on a 50:50 investment plan. However, during shooting, the movie was scaled up so as to not compromise on the final outcome. Eros was unwilling to shell out the extra money and ultimately, bowed out of the project,”

Confirming the news Jayantilal Gada of Pen India said, “Pen and Narendra Hirawat are now distributing the film in India while Reliance will take care of overseas distribution. Besides, the music rights no longer belong to Eros Now it is with T- Series. I wouldn’t like to delve into why Eros is longer a part of the deal.”

Though both Krishika Lulla of Eros International and Ajay Devgn have as yet not opened up on the fact.

‘Shivaay’ will be released on Oct. 28, the same day as Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.’ The clash of the two films is looked upon as a colossal box office battle with both trying to gain the upper hand.
