The Mahabharata has remained probably the most tailored, recounted and interpreted tales of all time. There have been quite a few variations on stage and display, and e book cabinets are at all times brimming with trendy retellings of Sage Vyasa’s epic narrative.
Now, a UAE-based Indian businessman is pumping in Rs 1,000 crore to provide India’s greatest ever movement image, ‘The Mahabharata‘. The bold undertaking shall be directed by advert filmmaker VA Shrikumar Menon. To be produced in two elements, the shoot begins in September 2018 and the movie is anticipated to launch in early 2020. The sequel of the movie will come after 90 days of the release of its primary part.
“The film will be shot in English, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu and dubbed in major Indian and foreign languages.” BR Shetty said.
“This film will have an identity across continents,” the announcement said, adding that Mr Shetty, Founder and Chairman of UAE Exchange and NMC Healthcare, has been a keen supporter of Indian arts and culture. It will be a true ‘Make in India’ product which aspires to highlight India’s spectacular mythological storytelling, it said.
“I am confident that this film will be adapted in over 100 languages and reach over three billion people across the world”, he added.

He had reportedly mentioned the thought with Aamir Khan, who has proven eager curiosity within the director’s ‘dream undertaking’. Actor Amitabh Bachchan is being thought of for a key position on this big-budget retelling.
