Ajay Devgn has landed in legal trouble for the poster of his upcoming movie "Shivaay." A police complaint has reportedly been filed against Ajay for allegedly hurting Hindu sentiments, ANI reported.

The report said that a complaint has been filed against the actor at Tilak Nagar police station in Delhi. The complainant has reportedly accused Ajay of hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus by climbing Lord Shiva's figure with shoes on in the poster of "Shivaay."

The poster of "Shivaay" was released on May 21 that showed Ajay hanging on to a snowy mountain cliff, which was in the shape of Lord Shiva. The poster appeared to be quite creative and was liked by the fans.

Another poster from the film showed Ajay holding a "Trishul" made of ice. Directed by Ajay himself, the movie "Shivaay" is an action thriller. A major portion of the film has been shot in the tough terrain of Bulgaria.

The actor had shared a number of pictures and videos from the sets of the film that had suggested that the team had a hard time shooting. "Shivaay" will be released on Oct. 29 this year.

In other news, Ajay has reportedly been offered a film that will be scripted and directed by KV Vijayendra Prasad of "Baahubali" fame. Titled as "Kabir," the film will reportedly be based on the backdrop of Babri Masjid demolition in 1992. "It is not a pro-government film. 'Kabir' takes a look at the turmoil that our country faced after the Babri Masjid was demolished and one man's heroic attempt to stand up to the violence that followed," DNA had quoted a source as saying.
