Banerjee told BH in an interview, “We are going to make Mahabharata which will be a big massive scale production. We are very excited about this one; we are working on this with Madhu Mantena who is our producer and is putting together an incredibly strong team for it. The writing sessions have been very exciting. Creative development has been happening at Disney+ Hotstar over the past several months. We will discuss the casting of Mahabharata soon.”
