Ace director S.S Rajamouli has declared that he would start his dream project Mahabharata in the future but he needs some experience. Seems a top Bollywood hero is attempting this project earlier than Rajamouli in Hindi.
The star hero is none other than Mister Perfectionist Aamir Khan. Aamir has earlier declared that he wants to act in mythologies like Ramayana and Mahabharata before he retires from acting. This Dangal hero all of a sudden has decided to make this wish a reality by starting a project. So it has heavily speculated that he along with a couple of producers are going to bankroll the Mahabharata series from his next flick onwards. As a result, he has roped the director of Secret Superstar flick which he bankrolled earlier. The first installment is scheduled to get on sets in the early months of next year and the release would be for 2019’s Sankranthi. Also the fact that Aamir walking out of Salute project supports this speculation. Salute is the biopic planned on first Indian Astronaut Rakesh Sharma who made India proud by becoming the first Indian to enter Space.
However, an official confirmation is awaited from Aamir Khan himself. For now, he is busy with the biggie The Thugs of Hindustan. He is sharing screen space with the mighty Big B and Katrina Kaif. This movie is being made in English and Hindi in parallel for its international release.
