The last time Ajay Devgn showed off his vocal chords to us, it was nothing short of a disaster.

Remember, his rendition of the cult classic 'Chingaari Koi Bhadke' in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in 1999? Yes this is the catastrophe that we are talking about:

And 17 years later, since nobody asked him all these years to try his hand at singing again, the actor decided to take the onus upon himself.

In what is considered to be his most ambitious project so far, Ajay's directorial home production Shivaay, will have the man croon. And we can't help but ask, why?

Apparently, it didn't take much to convince the actor as he was more than happy to do the honours. But we can't help but wonder what made music composer, Mithoon decide something like this? We understand Ajay has his blood and sweat linked to this project, but isn't he pushing the buck too far?

Anybody waiting for a musical gem to emerge from this project? Guess, we will have to wait and watch out for now.
