There has been much speculation if Aamir Khan will work on his dream project – The Mahabharat. But now has it from sources very close to Aamir, that the superstar is indeed working on Mahabharat. In fact, the pre-production work on the franchise has already begun. Aamir’s Mahabharat will be divided into 5 movies, which will take up 10 years of the superstar’s life.

Ideally, he doesn’t wish to do any other film for nearly a decade, starting 2018, after he completes Yash Raj’s ambitious venture, Thugs Of Hindostan, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh.

Also, we have learnt from close quarters that Aamir wants to do Mahabharat in 5 parts. We can't imagine life without Aamir for the next 10 years.

Aamir is still thinking about the extent of his involvement in the project. There are 3 possibilities

1. If Aamir does a full-length role in Mahabharat, then he can’t do any other films, for the next 10 years.

2. If he does act in the film, the role will need to fit his physicality. We know how Aamir likes to get into the skin of his characters, quite literally. Secret Superstar and Dangal are the most recent examples.

3. If Aamir does end up acting in the franchise alongside production responsibilities, he could take a short role. But that means, he will be tempted to sign a film, or two. But he doesn’t want to deviate from Mahabharat. He wants to deep dive into it, and nurture it like his baby.

Perhaps all this, and much more, is going-on in the superstar’s head.

But one thing’s for sure --- after Thugs Of Hindostan --- it’s only Mahabharat for Aamir.

We just told you an hour back that Aamir Khan had made a call to Priyanka Chopra. So now you know the official reason why the Dangal hero chose to let the Rakesh Sharma biopic pass.
