WATCH: Stunning Footage Shows Ajay Devgn Battling A Snowstorm For 'Shivaay'


For his upcoming venture Shivaay, Ajay Devgn has found himself in the harsh terrains of Bulgaria.

The actor, who has also taken directorial responsibilities for Shivaay, has been holed up in the European country, where the unit is filming action sequences for the movie that's been touted as one of the most-expensive Bollywood films.

In a footage shared by the actor on his Twitter handle, Devgn is seen battling it out in extreme weather as a chopper hovers above him, leading to an explosive snowstorm. The crew is filming at Vihren, which stands at 2914 meters above sea-level, and is the highest peak in Bulgaria.

The stunning footage also illustrates the amount of logistical co-ordination the film's team is involved with, and shows Devgn standing triumphantly even as gusty winds threaten to overpower him. While Shivaay's team is covered with layers of woollens, the Singham star looks rather comfortable in tee and denims, his character's wardrobe.

The Times of India reported that by the end of the schedule, Devgn suffered from a severe bout of hypothermia (they were shooting in minus 19 degree celsius) and local medics were brought in to look into his health. Despite advising him to rest for two days, the actor sprung up in 30 minutes and continued with the shoot of his directorial venture.
