‘MAHABHARATA’ WILL BE PRODUCED WITH A 1000 CRORE BUDGET:

Sometime back, ‘Baahubali’ director SS Rajamouli confirmed discussing ‘Mahabharata’ with Aamir Khan. Talking about this epic film Rajamouli said, “I want to do ‘Mahabharata’ and I have said that many times but definitely not immediately after ‘Baahubali’. ‘Mahabharata’ is such an epic that I need to up my craftsmanship to handle such a subject. I met Aamir ji once quite sometime back, We spoke about ‘Mahabharata’. I know that he’s very much interested in doing the film. But as I said, at present I am not thinking anything beyond ‘Baahubali’. ‘Mahabharata’ is definitely not after this.”   Now, there are reports which suggest that a UAE-based billionaire wishes to produce ‘Mahabharata’ with a budget of 1000 crores. It will be a motion picture which will be directed by renowned filmmaker, V A Shrikumar Menon. As per reports, ‘Mahabharata’ will be produced in two parts, the first one is scheduled to go on floors in September, 2018. However, the release of this epic motion film still has time. Of what we hear, the first part of ‘Mahabharata’ will be released in the year 2020.   Talking about the script of the film, it is adapted from M T Vasudevan Nair’s novel ‘Randamoozham’ (The Second Turn), which narrates ‘The Mahabharata’ through the eyes of Bhima, the second Pandava. Producer BR Shetty, who is a founder and chairman of UAE Exchange and NMC Healthcare also spoke about this mega-budget project which will be made under their production. He said, “The film will be shot primarily in English, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu and will be dubbed into major Indian languages and leading foreign languages. The movie would be a true ‘Make in India’ made for the world.” Adding further, BR Shetty said, “This film will have an identity across continents, with their representatives donning the myriad characters in ‘The Mahabharata’! A global team led by an internationally renowned casting director will handpick the cast,” the director said.   As far as Bollywood is concerned, Shah Rukh Khan also expressed his desire to produce an epic film like ‘Mahabharata’, while Aamir Khan is in talks with SS Rajamouli about it. However, we are looking forward to watch BR Shetty’s produced ‘Mahabharata’ on big screen!  The Times of India : 19th. Apr,17
