Starring Ajay Devgn and Sayyeshaa Saigal, "Shivaay" is one of the much-awaited films of the year. The news of Salman Khan agreeing to play a part in it is sure to make the wait harder.

The superstar has been roped in for a special song, SpotboyE reported. The number will be used for promotional purposes.

Trivia: The "Sultan" star had featured in the "Po po po" song from "Son of Sardaar," which had Ajay, Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead.

Going by the friendship Ajay and Salman share, this development isn't really a shocking one.

Also, the latter has shown great interest in the film and apparently wished to take a look at the rushes of young find Sayyeshaa.

In other news, Salman may be seen in an important role in "Sons of Sardaar 2" (starring Ajay and Sanjay), which is not the comedy of errors its predecessor was all about.

Helmed by Ajay, the action-drama also stars Polish actress Erika Kaar. In a first, the film is set to get three trailers, which are to be released back-to-back in the coming month — Aug. 8, 9 and 10.

Scheduled to open in theatres on Oct. 28, the film will clash with Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil," which stars Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma in key roles. It's going to be a tough and interesting fight at the box office.

The string of posters and teaser, which have been put out over the past few weeks indicate that the film bets big on edge-of-the-seat stunts and action sequences. Some of the behind-the-scenes videos that Ajay had shared on social media are proof of the hard work that went into making the film.
