With the presence of film producer Boney Kapoor, Jeetendra, Sharman Joshi and Dr Madhu Chopra at the book launch Om Books International’s book ANTIM: The Last Avatar authored by Dr Neetika Modi, one thing is certain that even our Bollywood stars have an inclination towards Vedic Tales and our Indian mythology.
‘Antim: The Last Avatar’ navigates the boundaries between myth and reality, pitting morality against malevolence, while unveiling the protagonist’s inner struggle to confront both his adversaries and his own demons. The narrative’s blend of Vedic tales, supernatural elements, and cutting-edge technology forms a unique tapestry that leaves readers spellbound.
The glitterati of Tinsel Town graced the launch of what could be a potential bestseller in the contemporary mythology genre at Title Waves. We are talking about Om Books’ latest offering by Dr. Neetika Modi, ‘Antim: The Last Avatar’. Blending elements of Indian culture, mythology, and fiction, this enthralling tale promises to take readers on an epic journey through time, morality, and the ultimate struggle between good and evil, delving into a world where ancient prophecies, superhuman powers, and divine beings collide.
Set against the backdrop of the 21st century, the novel weaves a gripping narrative that spans generations and introduces readers to a cast of characters deeply rooted in Indian mythology. Drawing inspiration from the stories of the Eight Chiranjeevis, the guardians of the universe, Antim centres around the prophesied birth of Kalki, the tenth and final avatar of Lord Vishnu. As the world grapples with moral decline, Kalki emerges as humanity’s last hope, and the battle between good and evil intensifies.
Priyanka Chopra revealed the book cover on Instagram earlier this month and conveyed her excitement, saying, “I wish you so much luck… I can’t wait to read the book, so everyone go grab a copy.”
