Mahabharata is one Hindu mythology that has been made and remade in the form of plays and TV shows with people loving it, even more, every time. So it’s only natural that filmmakers would want to take the Hindu epic to the next level. Aamir Khan has now taken it upon himself to make Mahabharataon a larger than life scale. It is touted as his dream project and he has been planning for it for 10 years now.
He has been discussing the probable script with a lot of veterans from the industry and mythological experts as well. While working on the films that he has signed, a team is developing the script for Mahabharata. Now in a recent report in Bollywood Hungama, looks like Aamir is planning to tie up with Netflix for this project and make it the biggest Indian project to date.
A source close to the development revealed that Mr.Perfectionist felt that a multi-part film series may not do justice to the larger than life epic. He is visualizing the project to be a multi-season project along the lines of Game Of Thrones. And he is planning to go full throttle with scale, budget, and presentation.
But currently, the project is still in its elementary stages and we may get a clear picture only after the pandemic comes to an end. Apart from Mahabharata, the actor is in talks with Netflix for multiple other projects that may include Netlfix original films as well. Other than the Osho project with Shakun Batra, the actor is brainstorming several different projects for Netflix. He may not act in them all but he will be closely involved in the content and making of it all. If this deal works out it will be the biggest deal in digital history.
