Shah Rukh Khan has dropped the idea of playing Karna in the remake of Hindu mythological drama ‘Mahabharat’.
It was revealed last year that King Khan had a desire to remake the epic but he will no longer pursue with the idea as Rajkumar Santoshi is making something similar too.
Khan told Mid-Day, ���I wanted to make a modern-day Mahabharat but I was on a flight and read that Rajji (Rajkumar Santoshi) is also making it. So I dropped the idea. Also a costume drama takes a lot of time and you need to have a certain look and you have to get into character for a year. As of now I am making my next home production and will also work on Farah�۪s film.�
