This Diwali’s purported blockbuster Shivaay has just undergone a surgical operation. The film’s playing time of nearly 3 hours has been reduced by 8 minutes.
Says a source in the know about the development, “It was unanimously felt by film’s team that one of the reasons for its slow performance at the box office was the inordinate length. At 2 hours 53 minutes Shivaay clocked at almost an hour longer than the normal duration in today’s cinema. A day after the film’s release, 8 minutes of the film was snipped off.”
Sources say a few minutes of the film had also been edited a day before the film’s release.
