SHIVAAY is the story of an extraordinary man in an extraordinary circumstance. In this explosive action film that is set to be released during Diwali weekend, SHIVAAY is reminiscent of TAKEN and CLIFFHANGER, where formerly badass men, who just want to live quiet lives to raise their kids or escape their former violent pasts, are pushed to the edge and must risk life and limb to protect their own from evil-doers.

Shivaay is a Himalayan mountaineer who may seem like an innocuous everyman until he is pushed over the edge. Much like Liam Neeson in TAKEN, Shivaay has a “particular set of skills”, which come to light when his daughter is kidnapped by a rival who wants to bring him back to the dark side. He will do whatever it takes to end the villains who wish to destroy his idyllic life.

Superstar Ajay Devyn turns in a high octane performance as the title character, while also presenting his directorial debut. The film promises incredible thrills and amazing action set pieces. Even the slogan for the film promises that -- “This Diwali, There will Destruction.”
