Bollywood megastar Aamir Khan has often shared his desire to make a film on Mahabharat. There were reports that he will feature in SS Rajamouli's Mahabharat trilogy. Now it seems that actor has decided to make the epic Mahabharat franchise under his own production.
Reportedly Aamir will start working on the film after he wraps up Thugs of Hindustan. He will spend the next decade of his career on a franchise which will stretch into several films, tv series, video games and books. The first film in the franchise will be directed by Advait Chandan who earlier helmed Secret Superstar.
All of the films will feature Aamir Khan as Krishna and will have ensemble cast including actors from Bollywood, Tollywood and Kollywood. It will be the biggest project in the history of India and will be made on the lines of Hollywood epic series Lord of The Rings.
Aamir Khan right now is only working on Thugs of Hindostan. Reportedly it will be his last film outside his production house as he has opted out of Salute.
