It's a day of unveiling the heroines. Barely few minutes after makers of Mohenjo Daro unveiled their heroine Pooja Hegde, Ajay Devgn took the veil off his Shivaay heroine Sayyeshaa Saigal. 

Devgn, who is also producing and directing Shivaay, took to twitter to make this disclosure. "Here's presenting the ravishing @sayyeshaa Welcome her as she joins the journey of Shivaay," wrote Devgn.

Sayyeshaa too tweeted the poster and seeked blessings from all. 

What is striking about the poster is Sayyeshaa’s hazel eyes, and the intense look. Comparisons with Yami Gautam are bound to arise. It's safe to assume that as opposed to the usual trend, Devgn has presented his heroine in a rather deglam avatar.  

Saigal looks years ahead of her age. Interestingly, the 18-year-old is 29 years younger to Devgn. Sayyeshaa is the daughter of yesteryear actors Sumeet Saigal and Shaheen Ahmed. Sayyeshaa is also the niece of Saira Bano. Shivaay marks her debut in Hindi films, but the 18-year-old has starred in the Telugu film, Akhil: The Power of Jua, earlier.

Shivaay is slated to release this Diwali.
