Second law of thermodynamics states that entropy always increases.Elixir of immortal life is a thing humans are longing for since ages.Does this law forbid us from becoming immortal?I mean if disorder always increases,then we cannot permanently reverse the process of aging.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Please note that the second law of thermodynamics applies to isolated systems. Life, the simplest cell, is an engine for reducing entropy in its volume and increasing entropy in its surroundings, so life is not limited by entropy because it develops within a larger medium, which can be considered as isolated.
Crystals also do the same, when something crystallizes out of e medium, the crystal has reduced entropy and all the entropy increase is in the medium.
It depends what you mean by immortal:
If it means to transcend time, can anything wholly mortal or finite transcend time? Even in religous philosophies already some divine element, spark or breath ie something transcendent or immortal in this sense is mixed in with the human clay ie mortal or finite.
If it means to to last as long as time lasts - at least potentially; then that in principle seems possible, by considering some life form that preserves its integrity by excreting entropy to the surrounding environment.
