King Khan’s Novelty: SRK to star in a novel

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

“Love him or hate him, you just can’t ignore him…”  Think you’ve seen enough of Shah Rukh Khan already? Well, think again!  After theatre, television and cinema,  SRK now plans to add another feather to his cap – a novel.  Nope! He’s not gonna write one, he’s going act in one!

Now  it’s no secret that King Khan has a strong inclination towards the technological arts, and this is manifested regularly in his work – he owns a VFX studio, produced the National Award winning movie Ra.One & his company has created the visual effects for movies like Krrish 3. His latest venture would once again make full use of modern technology.

For the first time in India, a Bollywood actor would be featuring in a graphic novel. This mode of entertainment is yet untapped worldwide,  as most of the successful graphic novels are either video game titles or spin-offs of big-budget movies. SRK will be seen in the graphic adaptation of Ramesh Tamilmani’s –Atharva – The Origin.  The first look of the same was released earlier this week.

The trailer of Atharva shows a french-bearded Shah Rukh – heavily armed & armoured, in a mythical world with a dragon in the background. Designed by Virzu Studios, the VFX are quite appealing for a graphic novel (way better than Kochadaiyaan!)  but don’t compare them with a Playstation video game (although, it looks very much like an action RPG)! It is also the first time we’ll see King Khan in an animated avatar. His last rendezvous with animation was when he voiced-over for Incredibles (2004).

Amidst monotony and humdrumness, such attempts are rare. So do take a look!

Exudes the curiosity & enthusiasm of a child, yet he surprises you with his tenacity. He prefers being called SyD and is addicted to playing video-games & watching Californication series! Technology is his opium & he is known among his peers for providing effective tech-help (and unconventional relationship advice!). Associated with various organizations & individuals, Syd is extremely fascinated by Human Psychology, Evolutionary Biology, Greek & Indian mythology, Cosmology, Natural Magic and of course, Bollywood. He likes to party like there's no tomorrow and lives by the phrase -hakuna matata! Ping him on [email protected] for any assistance or otherwise ^_^
