Sayyeshaa Saigal, who made her big Bollywood debut in Shivaay, said that working in the film was a learning experience for her. She also said that the best part about Ajay Devgn is his calmness.
She told IANS, "For the first time, I saw a film camera on the set. I didn't have any reference when I went to the set of Akhil (her first Telegu film). Shivaay set up and the unit was much bigger. It was a very big learning experience for me. Sharing the experience of working with Ajay Devgn, Sayyeshaa, 19, said, "The best part about Ajay Devgn sir is his calmness. In spite of being a superstar, he is such a humble person. If you ever have a tea with him, you won't even realise he is such a big star."
"As an actor he is spontaneous. He didn't have to do rehearsals
before the scenes which I learnt from him. He always used to tell
me throw dialogues as if you would do at home. Speak naturally and
don't overact," the young actress added.

About the film's feedback and the clash with Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, the actress said, "The comments which I received so far are good. Both the films are good so both will get a good run at box office."
Sayyeshaa, who is the grandniece of veteran actors Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu, said she took tips from them about how to prepare before going on the set.
"They told me that how they used to prepare the dialogues before going to the set. They used to make notes putting right conjunctions between the lines. Saira ji suggested me to learn Odissi dance," She said.
