I don't understand this Vimanika Comics guys. These people have screwed the Indian Mythological stories.
"A successful businessman is forced to go to India in search of the dark shadows that has been haunting him since his childhood days."
This successful business man is none other than the creator of this Vimanika comics Karan Vir. He thinks he can make a comic on his story.
