It (book) will be launched by Ajay and the cast of "Shivaay" on October 23 in Mumbai, a press release said.

The book is being scripted and designed by TBS Planet, a comics studio from Bangalore.

"'Shivaay' the comic is totally different from the film but it has the flavour of adventure and the characteristics of the mountaineer.
