New Delhi: Just like the rivalry between the celebrities, B-town has also experienced clashes between directors. Reportedly, famous filmmakers, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar were competing for the rights to Amish Tripathi's best-selling novel, "Immortals of Meluha"
As per the reports, Karan Johar has been holding the rights for a long time, Shuddhi being an adaptation of this book with Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan as the leads. However, the film didn't make it due to insufficient funds by the filmmakers.
It's been said that 'one's loss is someone else's gain'. Bhansali has shown a keen interest in turning the novel into a full-fledged feature film.
Reportedly, it is been said that the official rights to adapt the book have been given to the 'Bajirao Mastani' director.
When the book came into the market, it became an instant hit as a mythological fantasy!
