New Delhi, Aug. 8 (ANI): Ajay Devgn's much awaited movie 'Shivaay,' that speaks about the presence of Lord Shiva in everyman, was inspired from a real life story.

"Shivaay is an emotional drama. The idea came from an article on a real life story, we read. We were moved by the article. This picture is from that thought process. We did not follow it, rather that was our inspiration," he said during the trailer launch yesterday at Indore.

The trailer of the film, which also Erika Kaar and Sayyeshaa Saigal, sees Devgn as an innocent Himalayan mountaineer, capable of being a destroyer and protector like Lord Shiva.

The movie speaks about the God lying within an everyman, which is very well said in the movie, "Na aadi na antt uska, woh sabka na inka-unka. Wahi Shunya hain, wahi ikaye, jiske bheetar basa Shivaay (With no beginning and no end.Indivisible and equal to all.Nothing and yet.Shiva is in all of us.)" (ANI)
