A few years ago, Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan, announced his interest in bringing to life the epic Mahabarata. His team did extensive research on the project for several years, and it was said that Aamir would dedicate at least 5 years to this project, which would be made into a web series and be released through several seasons.
However, Aamir, later on, decided to shelve the project, and nothing has been said about it after that. Many other Indian actors expressed their interest in making Mahabharata, and many even announced the film. These too got shelved eventually.
It is very well known that director Rajamouli has expressed his wish in making Mahabharata, and even stating that it was his magnum opus and that he would dedicate several years to that project. With everyone who announced Mahabharata walking away from that project, rumours are now afloat that Rajamouli and Aamir may team up for the film. If this turns out to be true, then it is going to be the biggest film that Indian Cinema has ever seen.
