Shekhar Kapur to make a movie trilogy on Ram Chandra novels written by Amish Tripathi.

Mumbai: Shekhar Kapur was asked by a Twitter user whether he can make a film trilogy based on  Ramayana novels of Amish Tripathi  He said he will "happily" do so if Tripathi agrees.

Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur and author Amish Tripathi may join hands together to adapt the best-selling Ram Chandra series of novels. Kapur was asked by a Twitter user whether he can make a film trilogy based on Ramayana novels.

To which, Kapur replied, “If @authoramish agreed, I would happily do so.” Tripathi promptly replied to the tweet, saying, “Let the discussions begin!”

Of course, interactions on social media may not often mean much in the real world and what is said on Twitter might not end up actually being a deal between these two people. But many fans are already excited about the development.

Ram Chandra series consists of three novels, Scion of Ikshvaku, Sita: Warrior of Mithila, and Raavan: Enemy of Aryavarta. They retell the story of epic poem Ramayana, literally meaning the journey of Rama, the legendary king who is considered one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu

Tripathi also has the Shiva Trilogy and the recent Legend of Suheldev to his credit.

Kapur, known for films like Masoom, Mr. India, Bandit Queen, two Elizabeth movies, among others, has been away from directing duties for quite a while. He last sat in the chair for the 2009 short film Passage.
