Aamir Khan’s next film is going to be an epic saga, titled Thugs of Hindostan. The YRF project is currently in works and is planned to get released in November, this year.
After that, the actor will jump into the pre-production of what could be toted to be the biggest movie ever made in India. Back in March, reports suggested that the actor will be starring in a movie Mahabharata. And interesting thing is this, that it seems like the actor has already jumped into prep mode.
Aamir was spotted reading Mahabharata at the airport today. Long back, there were talks that Baahubali director SS Rajamouli had plans to make a movie on Mahabharat and he was in discussion with Aamir Khan, even before the release of Baahubali 2.
As we all know that Aamir Khan is a perfect reader. And that tag is not just something he would use in his Twitter bio to look cool. We have seen him carrying a book with him everytime we spot him at the airport. In the latest spotting, the actor was seen carrying a book, titled, The Condensed Mahabharata of Vyasa.
Earlier in March, Mid Day reported that Mukesh Ambani is ready to invest approx INR 10,000 crore in the movie.
Though there is no clarity if the businessman will start a new production house for this movie or produce it through his existing media entities like Jio or Viacom 18, the report confirms his interest in Aamir Khan’s Mahabharata.
About a year ago, Aamir had revealed his interest in the project and that he desired to play either Kanha or Lord Krishna, during a recent media interaction. He had said “I am a huge fan of Rajamouli’s work and if he ever plans to make Mahabharata, I’d love to play Krishna or Kanha. I might actually go with Krishna.”
