Aamir Khan is known to do
things hatke. His dreams are no different. Of course, when Mr Perfectionist has
an ambition, it will undoubtedly be big.
You may recall that SpotboyE.com had broken the news of Aamir Khan’s biggest and most ambitious project, Mahabharta, estimated to be made on a budget of Rs 1000 crore in multiple parts over a span of 10 years.
And with the latest update, looks like a step has been taken forward to convert Aamir’s vision into reality as the superstar has reportedly got a funder on board.
According to a report in Mid-day, Mukesh Ambani has agreed to co-produce the magnum opus. Now, whether India’s top industrialist will back the project through a new company full-fledged or will be involved through his existing entertainment wings- Jio, Viacom 18- is yet to be confirmed.
But if he does facilitate Aamir’s vision on the celluloid, it will be the amalgamation of Bollywood’s biggest star with India’s biggest businessman to offer Indian film industry’s biggest film. Can’t get bigger than this, isn’t it?
Aamir Khan has been toying with the idea for a long time, and has been vocal about how it’s his unfulfilled dream to make Mahabharta. It’s just last year that the project gained momentum and Aamir’s attention. In fact, he pulled out of Sidharth Roy Kapur’s venture- astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s biopic- after signing the film, something which a professional actor like him has never done.
SpotboyE.com also told you, how Aamir tried to help the makers by requesting Shah Rukh Khan to step into his shoes, who graciously agreed. However, this had not gone down well with astronaut Rakesh Sharma as he was keen on Aamir playing the role.
All said and done, these altercations just show the extent to which Aamir is pursuing this project. And if Mukesh Ambani funds his dream, it will be extremely interesting to see the scale on which the makers will unfold the project.
