Ajay Devgn’s ‘Shaitaan’ anticipation grows leading to paid previews

Following an overwhelmingly positive response to its trailer, ‘Shaitaan’ has quickly ascended as one of the most highly anticipated supernatural thrillers of the year, leading to paid previews and advances across key territories overseas, including North America, the UK, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, that started this week.

This strategic decision underscores the film’s global appeal and the eagerness of audiences worldwide to experience its thrilling narrative.

Directed by Vikas Bahl, the film brings together powerhouse talents and promises a thrilling experience like never before. Featuring a stellar cast led by Ajay Devgn, Jyotika, and R Madhavan, ‘Shaitaan’ delves into the harrowing ordeal of Kabir, performed by Ajay Devgn, and his family, whose idyllic weekend retreat turns nightmarish with the arrival of a mysterious stranger. The film masterfully intertwines elements of action, emotional drama, and the sinister undercurrents of Indian Black Magic, promising a cinematic experience that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.

R Madhavan, in a riveting portrayal of the antagonist, brings to life the film’s central conflict, as he seeks refuge in the home of Ajay and Jyotika’s characters, only to reveal his malevolent intentions.
