The Quest for Immortality: Shah Rukh Khan in and as “Atharva: The Origin”

Superstars have been dabbling in cartoons and  movies since a while. Possibly the first time that a superstar gave his form to a comic creator was when Amitabh Bachchan was in a comic book where he played a superhero wearing purple tights, titled, ‘Supremo’

While that was in the late eighties, the activity  of creating fictional characters from facsimiles has changed a lot. Amitabh Bachchan was supposed to star in another animated movie whose first look was out there on YouTube, and now it seems Shah Rukh Khan is all set to act in Atharva: The Origin, a graphic novel,  where his facial features are used to play Atharva. You can watch the video here:

This is a graphic novel, and is made by Virzu Studios. The video description tells us this about the movie:

” Atharva – The Origin” is a new age graphic novel project by Virzu Studios featuring Shah Rukh Khan as the titular character.
The novel is based on a very young earth, in a time long forgotten, a prospective king makes a difficult and lone journey . ‘Atharva’ chronicles that journey, taking it’s hero and you on a awe inspiring journey encountering magnificent lands and strange beasts – a true treat for the soul and the senses
