Panaji, Nov 24: A German filmmaker is planning a fictional film on twin brother of  Jesus Christ which will take shape once he gets a Indian co-producer for the film that would be shot in Indian background.

Germany production company is working on a decade old project which was abandoned after death of a producer in an accident.

Robert Sigl's "The 13th disciple", a fiction based on a story about Jesus's twin evil brother and their re-incarnation in the current age, is participating in the international film festival of India (IFFI) scouting for Indian co-producers.

"Film is about two archeologists touring India to research about Jesus lifespan in India. The story reveals about Jesus' evil twin brother who used to practice some different sect,'''s producer Mario Stefan stated narrating the story at film bazaar of International film festival of India organized by national films division corporation (NFDC).

The firm which has produced film like The Army of Ghosts, are ready to face the controversy that would erupt on their project. ``My aim is not to create controversy but if you deal with religious theme than be prepared to face the controversy,'' Stefan says.

"The film is a piece of fiction and not based on true events," he sought to re-clarify.

The film will have most of the Indian cast except two who would be playing role of archeologists visiting India.  ``It's not a periodic film… It's a fiction and adventure film,'' he added.

The film budgeted at 8 million euro will be curtailed to five million Euros with its shooting in India.
