Debutante Sayyeshaa Saigal, who is gearing up for the release of the upcoming film “Shivaay”, says it’s a great honour for her to be a part of actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn‘s directorial.

“It gives me great honour to be a part of his (Ajay) directorial film. That doesn’t happen very often, so I couldn’t have asked for a better debut,” Sayyeshaa said here.

The actress, who is the grandniece of veteran Bollywood actress Saira Banu, considers herself “fortunate that Ajay sir gave me the opportunity to become a small part of ‘Shivaay’.”

Praising the “Singham” star, Sayyeshaa said he is very talented and “very accurate” when it comes to direction.

“He knows exactly what he wants, which made my life easier,” she added.

Asked if Ajay scolded her on the set, she said, “I didn’t get any scolding, Ajay sir is the most calm, cool person that you will ever find. He is strict in the way that he knows what exactly he wants. So till he gets that, he will make sure the take is shot.”

The film promises a bundle of action sequences, scenic backdrops, and an intriguing storyline. It has been shot in the scenic locales of the Balkan mountains of Bulgaria, Hyderabad and Uttarakhand.
