Aamir Khan may have remained tight-lipped about a film on ‘Mahabharata,’ but speculation has been rife that the ambitious project may have been shelved. However, it seems untrue.
A source told DNA India, “Aamir knows the amount of pressure and risks that will come attached with the film. He wants to make it after doing proper research. So he has asked his manager Advait Chandan (director of Secret Superstar) to do the groundwork and only after that is complete, will he check if he has enough material to go ahead with the project. Meanwhile, he will reportedly be seen in the Gulshan Kumar biopic that will go on floors soon after Thugs Of Hindostan releases.”
The film will reportedly be made on a budget of Rs 1000 crores, reports ZEE News. Khan himself was quoted as saying, “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.”
Khan is gearing up for his upcoming film ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the movie is slated to release on 8th November.
