Bollywood comic with Shahrukh, Rani and Aishwarya
Move over Archie, Amar Chitra katha and Tin Tin comics, a new comic book titled Bollywood is going to be created by Illustrated Comics, which is based in Singapore. Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukherjee and Aishwarya Rai will be seen as the characters in this comic book.
The comic has been created so that readers are entertained, but through a different medium. The creators wanted a new but equally powerful medium. The format will be similar to that of Amar Chitra Katha and Superman comics. The basic premise of the comic is a love triangle sans song and dance sequences. King Khan will be playing a college student who has quiet a few internet friends, his girlfriend is an Indian Sports Star and Rani and Aishwarya add the glamour value.
The comic is a typical Hindi masala potboiler; it has the typical bollywood love triangle which is the usual trend in bollywood. However the makers will add some real life drama so that the readers are able to identify with the story. The target audience is the youth in India as well as NRI’s. There is a current craze for anything related to bollywood and the publishers hope to capitalize on this trend.
Bollywood will be making a new innings with this comic book. Until now they have always stayed away from this medium. Here’s wishing them luck and success in this new venture.
