Kolkata: Author Amish Tripathi’s 'Shiva Trilogy', which went down really well with Indian audiences, will now feature as a web series. However, its big screen adaptation failed to see the light of the day.

Though filmmaker Karan Johar had bought the rights of the first of the three-part mythological series - 'The Immortals of Meluha' -- back in 2014, the project never took off.

"The rights have now come back from Karan, and a fresh contract has been signed with a producer. We are working on a (web) series based on the 'Shiva Trilogy'," Amish reportedly said.

Johar had said in 2017 that one of the reasons for not adapting the trilogy was "fear of repercussions".

The best-selling novelist, however, did not elaborate on who would helm the proposed web series or its release date.

Amish, 44, was in Bengaluru recently to promote his latest book 'Raavan: Enemy of Aryavarta', the third instalment in the 'Ram Chandra' series.

The book traces the life of Raavan from birth to the time he abducts Sita.

The banker-turned-author is confident that each and every book in his mythological saga will be adapted into a movie or a web series in due course of time.

"Each book has its fate and it will get converted into a movie or a series when the time is right... 'The Lord of the Rings' took 70 years, 'Jurassic Park' took only three-four years," he added.
