The perfectionist of the Bollywood industry had to keep aside his ambitious project. Aamir Khan shelves Mahabharat because he feels the time is not right for the movie. After almost two years of rigorous research on the subject and a determination to do justice to the epic saga, Aamir has decided to shelve his plans for making Mahabharat, at least for now.
While the Ramayana has been rendered innumerable times on the large screen the Mahabharat has never been a popular reference point for the movie experience. This had made the audience thrilled for Aamir Khan’s Mahabharat. Unfortunately, the reports now suggest that the plans of doing the mythological epic on the large screen with A-list stars were dropped. And Aamir had decided to make the Mahabharat as a web series.
Aamir Khan shelves Mahabharat:
A source revealed, “Aamir can’t afford to devote two years of his life to make a web series (Mahabharat was planned as a web series). He needs to quickly announce his presence in a big star-studded feature film directed by a reliable director,”
The source further adds, “After weighing all pros and cons Aamir Khan has decided not to make the Mahabharat. For one it would willy-nilly become controversial. More importantly, the scale on which he planned the project was commercially not viable. Also, setting aside five years of his precious time for the Mahabharat meant losing out on doing at least three feature films. So, no. No Mahabharat.”
Significantly, Aamir had opted out of astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s bio-pic to concentrate on his dream project the Mahabharat. Aamir had generously passed on the Rakesh Sharma project to Shah Rukh Khan.
