It's no surprise that Vidya Balan, the talk of tinsel town after having given two consecutive hits in the form of The Dirty Picture
within a span of a few months,
has filmmakers lined up at her door in
hopes of casting her in their upcoming project. Also, the subject of
much industry intrigue is the fact that Karan Johar has bought the
rights of Amith Tripathi's The Immortal of Meluha
, a trilogy
of novels that blends fantasy and mythology to tell a tale about Lord
Shiva of the Hindu pantheon. The latest buzz from B-town has both these
factoids coming together in a way that is sure to give audiences
something to look forward to!
Yes, it's true! When asked about whom he would like to cast
in this grand venture, the successful director-producer desperately
wants none other than Vidya to essay the role of Devi Parvati. To
portray the character of Lord Shiva, he has shortlisted heartthrob
Hrithik Roshan with whom he collaborated on his latest blockbuster Agneepath.
If all goes Karan's way, the film is likely to make a huge
splash on the strength of this unconventional pairing alone; here's
hoping that he gets his wish that we, too, would love to see fulfilled!
