Aamir Khan’s ambitious project on Indian epic Mahabharata shelved

A couple of months ago, B-town was buzzing with the news that Aamir Khan was planning to make a multi-million film on Indian epic Mahabharata. Reports suggested that the superstar wanted to rope in some of the biggest stars of Indian cinema, including himself.

However, if fresh reports are to be believed, the much-ambitious project has been shelved. Aamir Khan has taken this decision keeping in mind the high production cost of the movie.

“After weighing the pros and cons, Aamir has decided not to make a movie or series. For one, it would become controversial. But more importantly, the scale at which the project was being planned was not commercially viable. He would have to set aside five years for the project, which would mean losing out on at least three films. So there’s going to be no Mahabharata,” a source reveals to an Indian daily.

Meanwhile, Aamir Khan is presently busy with his upcoming film Thugs Of Hindostan. Also starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh, the film is scheduled to release on 8th November, 2018.
