After the success of Agneepath, Karan Johar seems to be taking a liking to Hrithik Roshan. He is casting him as Lord Shiva in his next production, which is an adaptation of the novel The Immortals Of Meluha authored by Amish.
According to sources, the role of Shiva in the film requires someone who not only looks good, but is also a terrific actor. And so the casting team at Dharma Productions has zeroed in on Hrithik.
Reportedly, Priyanka Chopra is likely to play the role of Parvathi. Once the lead pair are confirmed, the rest of the cast will be finalized.
