conversation with indianexpresscom said “Ajay was very particular of not letting us watch any Bollywood films during the shoot of Shivaay He wanted us to remain as uninfluenced as possible with the

films “I watched Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-starrrer Devdas They both are magical actors I saw 3 Idiots nice comedy And Deepika Padukone I am kind of a fan of hers She is so beautiful

screen” said Erika While Abigail said “Ajay sir is extremely professional And I love the fact that you can just tell him whatever you have in your mind He is so genuine and focussed I just love that
