It’s dream for ace director SS Rajamouli to make Mahabharat. However, he said he will make it later and will quit making films after directing the epic as a series. It was a big shock for Rajamouli when Aamir Khan announced to make Mahabharat in Bollywood.
It was reported that, Reliance Boss Mukesh Ambani came forward to bankroll the project with 1000 Cr budget. But, for some reasons the project got shelved. Aamir Khan, however, has plans to make Mahabharat as a web series.
Meanwhile, Bollywood maker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is planning to produce a film on the Mahabharata. He has even registered a title Mahabharata: The Greatest Battle Ever Fought with the Indian Motion Pictures Producers’ Association. It is not clear if Rakeysh would be directing it, but he has applied for the said title and is expected to co-produce it.
