Ajay Devgn has been in Bulgaria for quite some time now shooting for his next directorial venture Shivaay. The actor, who shot for an extremely difficult scene at the top of Pirin mountains, managed to pull it off in just a tee and surprised the crew of the film. The actor shared a video of his shoot schedule on Twitter wherein he is seen standing on the top of a mountain with a helicopter flying around him. In just a tee, the actor is strong willed to stand there and gives the best shot.
Sharing the video on Twitter, he wrote, “When the going gets tough, tough get going! Heartfelt thanks to fantastic TeamShivaay for an Extreme Bulgaria shoot.” As soon as he completed the shoot, the crew helped him wear a jacket and sit on a scooter to ride him to his hotel room. Devgn and his team were shooting at the highest peak of Bulgaria’s Pirin Mountain’s at VIHREN peak in Bansko.
There was heavy snowfall the night before and the temperatures unusually were running record low at the time for the season. Due to the extreme cold, Devgn suddenly got hypothermia. The Doctor advised at least 2 days of rest but Ajay Devgn was back in 30mins inspite of the temperature that they were shooting in. It was -19 degrees Celsius.

The Doctor attributed Devgn’s sudden Hypothermia to very tough terrain and lack of adequate warm clothing. While the unit was exhausted but prepped for the cold, bundled in layers of woolens; Devgn was in costume and was only clad in a T shirt and a jacket. Also the level of altitude mixed with the chopper hovering over his head blew a lot of snow and ice around the area where Devgn was isolated for these critical shots. The mountain specialists and guide on the shoot was also very worried as this is not a usual shoot that he has guided before.The Bulgarian crew, though used to extreme cold conditions were also very worried at the 40mins non-stop chopper shoot that Ajay Devgn pulled off on top of the Vihren Peak while all the crew waited on a safe point below. Shivaay will be Ajay’s second directorial venture after U,Me Aur Hum. The film is expected to release by the end of this year.
