Within days of its poster release, Ajay Devgn’s film Shivaay is already in the midst of trouble.

Certain groups have filed a legal complaint against actor-producer Ajay for hurting religious sentiments with theShivaay poster.

The poster in question shows Ajay Devgn rappelling down a mountain, an ice pick in hand, seemingly ready to do battle with monsters. In some photos, the pick looks like Lord Shiva’s trishul.

As it turns out, some of them thought it was offensive.

The complaint, filed in Delhi’s Tilak Nagar police station, specifically states that an image of Ajay climbing Lord Shiva’s figure with shoes on, is hurtful to devotees.

A closer look at the poster will show that it isn’t so much a figure of Shiva, as the outline of it that is suggested in the way the ice has been carved out, around Ajay.

Neither Ajay nor his team have issued any statement about the complaint so far.

Shivaay is expected to release on 28 October 2016.

A complaint has been filed against actor Ajay Devgn in connection with the poster of his upcoming movie ‘Shivaay’ for allegedly hurting Hindu community’s sentiments.
