These days Aamir Khan is busy shooting for the film “Thugs of Hindostan”. However, his most ambitious project “Mahabharata” is also in talks. If reports are to believed, the work on this big-budget film has already started. Aamir is keen to make “Mahabharata” India’s best film till date.
However, as per a report, he wants to turn “Mahabharata” into a franchise just like some Hollywood projects, including The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
To make such an extravagant project come true, it is obvious that a big budget is required. And now it looks like that Aamir has finally got the required funding. According to the report, Indian business tycoon Mukesh Ambani is ready to fund the movie and will give a Rs 1000 crore budget to Aamir Khan to make “Mahabharata”.
However, to date, it is not yet clear if the film would be produced under the existing banner, Viacom 18 or a new production house. The world knows that Aamir Khan is a perfectionist and therefore Mukesh Ambani’s investment would be in safe hands.
