Mumbai: Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who just delivered another box office hit with 'Padmaavat', has already left his fans intrigued about his next project.

It's been reported that 'Bajirao Mastani' director is having conversation with celebrated writer Amish Tripathi for the rights of the book, The Immortals of Meluha. When asked about the same, the author said that he does not talk about things, which are under discussion.

 

During a seminar on ‘Is contemporary cinema a reflection of contemporary literature’, when Amish was asked if there is any filmmaker who can do justice to his characters, he responded by saying, ''There one of the problems even if a rich epic tradition but in filmmaking there are very few filmmakers who  rarely go with this epic tradition and you know who they are.''

Earlier the author had assigned the rights of his book to Karan Johar, as the filmmaker wanted to make a film with Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Pdukone in the lead but that project didn't materialise. Ultimately Johar had to surrender the rights of the book.

 

If Bhansali gives his yes to this possible project, it would be interesting to see how he envision the world that Tripathi has created.

Meanwhile, SLB's much-awaited film 'Padmaavat' released on January 25 and crossed Rs. 100 crore-mark at the box office within four days. 'Padmaavat' stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Jim Sarbh, Aditi Rao Hydari and Raza Murad.
