Disney ‘to bring Hindu mythological superheroes to screen’ - Mr.Bhat - 09-14-2009

Disney is reportedly in talks with India’s Vimanika Comics to bring Hindu mythological superheroes to film and television.It could see Karna brought to life on screen.In mythology, Karna was the son of Kunti and sun-god Surya who was equipped with celestial arms and armor.However, Hindus are concerned.

Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, while welcoming Hollywood to film ancient Hindu scriptural subjects, urged them to stay true to the story and the spirit of the scriptures.

Zed said that changing ancient Sanskrit scriptures to fit the Hollywood machine were likely to hurt the Hindu sentiments.

According to him, refashioning Hinduism concepts, symbols, doctrines for mercantile greed is not acceptable, as it is the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion followers and a rich philosophical thought and it should not be taken lightly.

Vimanika reportedly plans to launch graphic versions of Dashaavatar, Legend of Karna, Lord Shiva, and Lord Garuda; and is looking to convert comics to online/mobile games. Its other titles include “Moksha”. Its tagline is “Bringing you Myth like no Other”! (ANI)
