Shah Rukh Khan in a mystical avatar in ‘Atharva – The Origin’
MUMBAI: Bollywood’s reigning badshaah, Shah Rukh Khan will be following Rajinikanth’s footsteps with his title role in a graphic novel entitled, Atharva – The Origin.
Khan, who is seen in a rather mystical avatar and will now achieve another milestone with the innovative concept of Atharva – The Origin. Redefining visual effects with films like Ra.One, Khan is one of the few actors who experiments a lot with technology and VFX.
The trailer of Atharva – The Origin has been released by Virzu Studios and features a CG SRK with ripped muscles and ancient armours, standing on a patch of rocky mountains in what seems to be the prehistoric age. Just like how Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiiyaan created buzz in the south, fans of King Khan are also excited to see SRK’s animated avatar.
The story, which is an adaptation of Ramesh Tamilmani’s graphic novel by the same name, traces the journey of a prospective King. The project is headed by Vel Mohan and contains beautiful illustrations by Ramesh Acharya.
