Ajay Devgn walks LIFF red carpet with daughter Nysa


Bollywood actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn and his daughter Nysa graced the London Indian Film Festival (LIFF). The father-daughter duo walked hand-in-hand on the red carpet on the opening night of the fest on Thursday (July 14) at the Cineworld Cinema, Haymarket, London.

Ajay looked smart in a black suit and grey shirt, while his 13-year-old daughter Nysa, who made her red carpet debut, looked pretty in a navy blue, off-shoulder dress.

The ‘Drishyam’ actor took to Twitter and shared a picture of him with his daughter from the event, and called her his “true strength.”

"Empowering the girl child. Walking the red carpet with my power besides me. She's my true strength #MyGirlMyStrength," Ajay wrote with the photograph.

Nysa is Ajay and his wife Kajol’s elder daughter. The couple also has a son Yug aged five.

LIFF is Europe’s largest South Asian film festival. The seventh edition of the event is being held from July 14-24 and film screenings will be held in theatres across London and Birmingham. 

On the work front, Ajay is working on his most ambitious project ‘Shivaay’. He not only plays the titular role in the film, but is also directing and producing it. The film is his second directorial project after the 2008 film ‘U Me Aur Hum’.

The major portion of the film has been shot in in Balkan Mountains of Bulgaria under extreme conditions, besides in the hill town of Mussoorie and its adjoining cantonment Landour in Uttarakhand, and Hyderabad. The film has some high octane action scenes.

Also starring polish actress Erika Erika Kaar, veteran actress Saira Bano’s grand-niece Sayyeshaa Saigal and British child artiste Abigail Eames, ‘Shivaay’ is slated to release on October 28 on the occasion of Diwali.
