Karan Johar is all set to make the film based on the bestseller in Indian Fiction, ‘The Immortals of Meluha’, penned by author Amish Tripathi. The star director bought the rights from the author to transcend the journey of Shiva from being a mortal to becoming an immortal. There was news floating in the tabloid that Ranbir Kapoor will play the Lord Shiva in the film. Ranbir, however, recently denied the reports and said that the news was false. “Yes, I read it in the newspapers that it is ‘The Immortals of Meluha’, but that is not true. It is completely untrue’, he said in a statement. The film by Karan Johar will be directed by Ayan Mukerji and will go on the floors next year in all likelihood. While it is still unknown as to who will be playing Shiva, we sure hope that it would be someone deserving. Ranbir would have looked fabulous, too. His next film, Besharam, is all set to hit the screens on October 2nd.
