If Aamir Khan is doing ‘Mahabharat’ I am sure he will do full justice to it, says SS Rajamouli.

A few weeks ago, news in the air was Aamir Khan backed out from ‘Rakesh Sharma’s biopic because he wants to invest his time in a long-term franchise. It was never confirmed that on which project Aamir has his eye but reports suggested that he wants to make a series cum franchise on the tales of epic Indian story, ‘Mahabharat’. Another report said that, after ‘Thugs Of Hindustan’, Aamir will put his whole time in Mahabharat, which will be a 5 parts series and take 10 years of his life. Interestingly, Aamir is not the only one in this race, superstar director, SS Rajamouli, the helmer of India’s most expensive and successful franchise, ‘Baahubali’, is also toying with various ideas on the Mahabharat and how to take it forward. In an interview with a leading portal, Rajamouli said, “I don’t think I will be getting into the Mahabharat for a while, not right away anyway. It requires a whole lot of planning. I need to know which parts of the Mahabharat I want to film. It’s not something I can get into right away. If Aamir Khan is doing it I am sure a great deal of planning must have gone into it. I am sure he will do full justice to it.”
Rajamouli feels the Mahabharat would be a game-changer in Hindi. “In Telugu cinema, there have been some very successful big-screen adaptations of the Mahabharat. In Hindi, I am not aware of any significant adaptation of this Epic.”
Rajamouli, therefore, feels Aamir’s decision to do Mahabharat is correct. “The conflicts in the Mahabharat are more relevant today than ever before. It is the ultimate epic challenge for any filmmaker. I am looking forward to it,” says Rajamouli.
