‘Shivaay’ makers deny featuring Pakistani actress
Mumbai, Sep 30 (IANS) Ajay Devgn’s upcoming Bollywood film “Shivaay” does not feature Pakistani actress Saba Qameer, the official representative of the movie said on Friday.
“Actress Saba Qamar or any other Pakistani actor or actress is not a part of ‘Shivaay’,” read a statement issued by the movie’s publicist on behalf of the filmmakers.
There was speculation that Saba is a part of the action-oriented thriller. But the clarification comes in the wake of ongoing developments wherein the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and the Indian Motion Pictures Producers’ Association have demanded a ban on Pakistani artistes working in India.
In an ensuing development, certain cinema chains in Pakistan have decided to withdraw the release and exhibition of Indian movies.
“Shivaay” is directed and produced by Ajay Devgn, who also stars in it. Also starring Vir Das, Sayyeshaa Saigal and Erika Kaar, the movie will hit the screens on October 28.
