Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan aces challenging roles like none other. And if recent reports are to be believed, Aamir is getting ready for his most ambitious project till date. Based on one of the greatest Indian epics, The Mahabharata, this won’t be a single movie but a movie series. Fans can’t contain their excitement!

Although, the news that actually caught everyone’s attention is that the movie will be co-produced by none other than Mukesh Ambani. Also, the movie will have a colossal budget of 1000 crore. Yes, you heard that right!

Speculations are rife that the movie will be grand in terms of the production value. It is also being reported that international writers will pen down the script to give it a global appeal.

The news was tweeted by Ramesh Bala, a trade analyst down south.

Last year it was reported that SS Rajamouli of the Bahubali franchise was keen on making a film based on the epic and had approached Aamir, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif for some important roles. The filmmaker quashed all such reports.

Amidst this chaos of speculations, one thing that does not require any confirmation is Aamir Khan’s immense love for the epic. While he was promoting Secret Superstar, Aamir Khan was quoted saying:

“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 favourite 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.”

 
Aamir also added that Arjun’s character is one of his favorites as he is the only one who questioned Lord Krishna whether it was right to kill his own kin.

There has been no confirmation from either Aamir Khan or Mukesh Ambani about the movie, yet. Until then, keep guessing!
