Aamir Khan’s Mahabharat is one project that has been buzzing around in the industry for quite some time now. There are numerous speculations around the project. Now if we believe in the latest report then after making much hype around the project Aamir has decided to shelve his plans for making Mahabharat.
A source was quoted as saying, “After weighing all pros and cons, Aamir Khan has decided not to make the Mahabharat. For one it would willy-nilly become controversial. More importantly, the scale on which he planned the project was commercially not viable. Also, setting aside five years of his precious time for the Mahabharat meant losing out on doing at least three feature films. So no. No Mahabharat.”
“Aamir can’t afford to devote two years of his life to web series (Mahabharat was planned as a web series). He needs to quickly announce his presence in a big star-studded feature film directed by a reliable director,” added the source.
“There were bound to be unsavoury controversies surrounding the project. The radical groups would have challenged Aamir’s right to film the inviolable epic. Aamir feels now is not the right time to make the Mahabharat,” the source concluded.
