SS Rajamouli meets Aamir Khan! Our dreams of a magnificent MAHABHARATA may just come true
Rumours were doing rounds that ‘Baahubali’ director SS Rajamouli was keen on bringing the epic ‘Mahabharata’ on screen, and wanted to speak to Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan about it. The excitement was enticing enough for a cinema lover and why not? When a man who created grandeur like ‘Baahubali’ strives to collaborate with a perfectionist and a megastar, both of who are legendary actors, the anticipation is infectious.
And now, the director has confirmed that he has spoken to Aamir Khan about the project, and that he too is keen on the same.
Does that mean our dream of having a grand Mahabharata on big screens is soon to come true? Read on. (Also Read:Aamir Khan, Rajinikanth and Mohanlal to star in SS Rajamouli’s ‘Mahabharat’?)
Yes, ‘Mahabharata’ is definitely on the cards, but, sadly it is not going to happen soon.
In the words of Rajamouli himself, “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.”
Confirming his meeting with Aamir, he further said, “Yeah I met Aamir ji once quite some time back, We spoke about Mahabharata. I know that he’s very much interested in doing the film.”
However, the director is surely not in a hurry to make the film. “But as I said, at present I am not thinking anything beyond Baahubali. Mahabharata is definitely not after this,” he said.
Well, as long as these two are coming together to give us a magnificent version of the epic, we are ready to wait.
