The director of ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ and its to-release sequel ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’, SS Rajamouli, is keen on making a movie on Sanskrit epic Mahabharata and, in an exclusive with Bollywood Life, he has admitted to discussing the possibility of a cinematic collaboration with superstar Aamir Khan.
Speaking about the mammoth project, Rajamouli said, “I want to do Mahabharata and I have said that many times but definitely not immediately after Baahubali. Mahabharat is such an epic that I need to up my craftsmanship to handle such a subject. Yeah I met Aamir ji once quite sometime back and we spoke about Mahabharata. I know that he’s very much interested in doing the film. But as I said, at present I am not thinking anything beyond Baahubali. Mahabharata is definitely not after this.”
Interestingly, Aamir Khan himself expressed his desire to work with Rajamouli during the promotion of Dangal. He 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 Karna. I might actually go with Krishna.”
