Mahabharata movie which is already creating a huge attention may soon go to start. it is the dream project of Amir Khan.
The Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan will work on a mega-budget movie series. It is based on the great Indian epic the Mahabharata after completing Thugs of Hindostan.
The sources said that it will go to be the most expensive films to be ever made.
And it will be on the lines of Hollywood’s The Lord of the Rings or the Game of Thrones in terms of the production value. It is said by movie industry tracker Ramesh Bala in his tweet.
According to Bala, the big budget film will be co-produced by Mukesh Ambani.
Amir Khan said Karan is my favorite character
While promoting Secret Superstar, Aamir had said, “My dream project is to make the Mahabharata but I’m afraid of starting the project. As I know it will consume at least 15-20 years of my life.
My favorite character is Karna, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to play him due to my physique. I may just have to play Krishna. I also liked the character of Arjun.
He was the only person who asked Krishna why he had to kill his own people.”
Also during another event, Aamir had said, “My dream is to make Mahabharata one day, which I have not yet achieved or I haven’t even moved towards it. It’s too scary as a dream, maybe that’s why. It’s a big dream and so let’s see if I can do it one day.”
Fascinatingly, a few months back, Fatima Sana Khan was reading The Mahabharata. It was obvious from one of her Instagram posts. But following rumors of her role in the film, she reportedly removed it from Instagram.
Though there has been no official announcement yet. But given the fact that Aamir hasn’t spoken about any other film yet. It looks as if that the actor may do the film based on the Mahabharata.
And it will be interesting to see what character he plays – Krishna or Karna.
Meanwhile for the one who doesn’t know about Mahabharat. Here’s IS some basic information about The Mahabharata. The epic narrates the tale of cousins – Pandavas and Kauravas -who wage a war (at Kurukshetra) to succeed to the throne of Hastinapur. The battle between the righteous and the unjust is elaborated through a series of episodes that lead to the end of the evil and the victory of the truth.
