Aamir Khan has earlier expressed his desire to make a film on the epic, Mahabharata. Recently, Khan expressed, “My dream project is to make the Mahabharata but I’m afraid of starting the project as I know it will consume at least 15-20 years of my life. My favourite character is Karna, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to play him due to my physique. I may just have to play Krishna. I also liked the character of Arjun. He was the only person who asked Krishna why he had to kill his own people.”
He also went on to add that if SS Rajamouli ever makes a film on the epic, he would love to be a part of it. And earlier this year, he had stated, “My dream is to make Mahabharata one day, which I have not yet achieved or I have not even moved towards it. It’s too scary as a dream, maybe that’s why. It’s a big dream and so let’s see if I can do it one day.”
And now it seems like Dangal fame, Fatima Sana Shaikh will also be a part of this film as she has been reading the Mahabharata as of late. If this is true, this will be the third film Fatima would work on with Khan after her debut and Thugs of Hindostan.
