Filmmaker Karan Johar is very much in the news these days. It is said that his onscreen adaptation of Amish Tripathi's book ‘Immortals of Meluha’ has Hrithik Roshan as frontrunner for the role of Lord Shiva. It is the role of Parvati (Shiv’s better half) that’s making the waves. Some said that KJo wanted to recreate the magic of the Vijay-Kaali with Hrithik and Priyanka Chopra jodi from ‘Agneepath’. But Priyanka Chopra denies the rumor. She hasn’t been approached. Buzz has it now that Vidya Balan is favored for the part.

Two, there is a strange news that Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions has signed up Emraan Hashmi for two films - ‘Unglee’ and ‘Gippie’ to be directed by Rensil D’Silva and Akshay Roy, respectively. The combination of Karan and Emraan is unusual, as are the films they’re working on. But while Emraan might feel an alien alongside Karan Johar, he’ll be right at home with his ‘Unglee’ co-stars - Kangna Ranaut, Neha Dhupia and Randeep Hooda. At the same time, he will feel an odd man with Deepika Padukone, the lead actress in ‘Gippie’, it is said.
