Ajay Devgn plays the lead in Shivaaay which he has also directed and produced. This is his second directorial venture after U, Me Aur Hum.

A day before Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay clash at the box office, the audience verdict is out. More than half of the voters (51.03%) want to watch Shivaay, while close to 36% preferred Ae DIl Hai Mushkil.

The release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was in trouble when the producers’ association, theatre owners and MNS workers demanded a ban on the film as it stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, along with Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma.However, Karan offered to donate Rs 5 crore to the army welfare fund and managed to get the release back on track.

With the ever-growing debate around the grand BO clash, we ran a poll asking our readers to tell us which movie would they prefer watching this weekend. The options included watching both or none.

Those who wish to watch Shivaay constituted 50.51% of those who took the poll, while 36.555 want to watch Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. On the other hand, 7.39% of those who took the poll want to watch both the movies and 5.5% do not wish to watch either.

But all of that is in the past now. Director Karan Johar, who returns to direction with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, managed to persuade MNS chief Raj Thackeray and his supporters to ‘allow’ the release of his movie. The film is now set for a grand BO clash with Ajay Devgn’s second directorial venture.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is a story of love, friendship and breakups. Ranbir, Fawad , Anushka and Aishwarya play lead roles.

Ajay has acted in, directed and co-produced Shivaay. The film also stars Sayyeshaa Saigal, Polish actor Erika Kaar, Vir Das, Abigail Eame of Doctor Who fame and Girish Karnad. The film shows a man’s fight for his family.
