The makers have kept the plotline of the film under wraps. The poster features five voodoo dolls, creating intrigue about the story and hinting that it’ll be based on black magic. “#Shaitaan is coming for you. Taking over cinemas on 8th March 2024,” wrote Ajay, sharing the film’s poster while Madhavan wrote, “The reign of #Shaitaan is upon us.” Jyotika shared, “It’s time to witness the rise of #Shaitaan.” The film will mark her comeback to Hindi cinema after a hiatus. Janki Bodiwala will debut with Shaitaan.
Shaitaan is presented by Jio Studios, Ajay Devgn Ffilms and Panorama Studios International, and produced by Devgn, Jyoti Deshpande, Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak. Devi Sri Prasad has composed the music for the film that the makers promise it will ‘redefine the genre’ of horror. The announcement excited fans, with some wondering if the film is a remake of Krishnadev Yagnik’s 2023 Gujarati film Vash. The makers are yet to respond to these claims.
