Who looks like a goddess? It’s Vidya Balan versus Priyanka Chopra for the role of Goddess Parvati in the film adaptation of the celebrated novel The Immortals Of Meluha. The buzz is that Karan Johar is keen to rope in Vidya Balan for the role, but the actor Hrithik Roshan, who will be seen as Lord Shiva in the film, is apparently more interested in Priyanka Chopra for the role of Parvati.
After acquiring the rights of the novel The Immortals Of Meluha, written by Amish Tripathi, Karan Johar zeroed in on Hrithik Roshan to play Lord Shiva. However, an official announcement on the same is yet to be made. Now, the buzz is that Karan Johar is eager to have Vidya Balan as Parvati. Karan was mighty impressed with the actress after watching her in The Dirty Picture and Kahaani, and now thinks she suits best the role of a goddess. Karan may have envisioned Hrithik and Vidya together, but a question looms if the audiences will like the pairing.
It’s learnt that Hrithik Roshan has a preference towards Priyanka Chopra to be cast as Parvati. The actor has worked with her in Agneepath and is also shooting with the actress for Krrish 3. Moreover, Hrithik and Priyanka look good together on big screen, and that would certainly add to the USP of the film.
Who do you think fits better the role of the goddess? If Vidya Balan is the quintessential Indian beauty to look convincing as the goddess, Priyanka Chopra’s appealing face and go-getter attitude is no less suited for the powerful role of Parvati.
