Aamir Khan Shelves His Dream Mythological Project Mahabharat – Reports

Published

It’s been many years since we are hearing that Bollywood actor Aamir Khan wants to churn out a mythological tale based on the epic Mahabharat. After a hiatus, we also heard that the perfectionist star has dropped the plan of making the magnum opus for the big screen, but instead will be going the digital and web-series way. It was said that he is planning to make a multi-season franchise of his dream project. Well, now, the latest we read on SpotBoye is that Aamir has shelved his idea of making the film. Did Aamir Khan Replace Vijay Sethupathi In Laal Singh Chaddha Due To A Few ‘Extra Kilos’?

The report adds that after rigorously researching the subject for the last two years, the superstar has decided to shelve the epic saga (at least for now).  One of the major reason for dropping the project is that Aamir cannot invest many years in a huge project. Aamir Khan’s Mahabharata: Ranbir Kapoor as Arjuna, Ranveer Singh as Duryodhana and Deepika Padukone as Draupadi: Here’s Our Cast!

“Aamir can’t afford to devote two years of his life to make a web series (Mahabharat was planned as a web series). He needs to quickly announce his presence in a big star-studded feature film directed by a reliable director,” told a source to the portal. “There were bound to be unsavoury controversies surrounding the project. Aamir feels now is not the right time to make the Mahabharat,” the source added. Laal Singh Chaddha: Aamir Khan Gets Mobbed By Fans In Turkey Who Broke Social Distancing Norms To Click Pictures With the Actor. 

FYI, there has been no official confirmation on the news by Khan yet. Meanwhile, on the professional front, Aamir is in the news these days for his upcoming Laal Singh Chaddha that stars Kareena Kapoor Khan opposite him. Stay tuned!

‘Aaj marne ka mood nahi hai’ screams Mohit Chadda’s character from the trailer of Flight to indicate what this film is all about. Touted as the edge of the seat thriller, the film follows the journey of a business tycoon Ranveer Malhotra, who against all the odds, has to face deadly obstacles on a plane to survive. Directed by debutant director Suraj Joshi, the movie is being released by UFO Moviez and Reliance Entertainment.

Talking about how every scene had to be pre-planned with the VFX team, debutant director Suraj Joshi shares, “Since most of Ranveer’s journey takes place in an empty aircraft gone missing, we had to make sure the sequences were pre-planned along with our VFX team so that we don’t miss a mark. Our entire team has worked hard day and night to bring this never seen before expedition in Indian cinema to the big screens. I hope the audience shares their love and support for the trailer as they have done to the motion poster.”

Elaborating on the same actor Mohit Chadda shares, “It’s really exciting to get the kind of response we are getting. Our idea was always to make a film that was unique, something that the audience had never experienced before. But it had to be a film that is worthy of the ‘Big Screen’ experience and at the same time, a story that would entertain audiences. We are sincerely hoping the trailer piques the intrigue of the audience, enough for them to come to theatres to watch the movie.”
