    Aamir Khan's dream project Mahabharata is still on, but actor is 'afraid to bring it out to the fore'

    Back in the day, Aamir Khan was keen to make Mahabharata as a web series. While he was supposed to feature as Lord Krishna, SS Rajamouli was touted to be the director of the project. But, it was reportedly shelved after weighing the pros and cons. Recently, Aamir opened up about his dream project and said that now is the right time to go ahead with it.

    Aamir is currently promoting his upcoming film, Laal Singh Chaddha , which is an Indian adaptation of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump. During a recent interview, the actor was asked about Mahabharata. He said, “When you’re making Mahabharat, you’re not making a film, you’re doing a yagna. It’s not a film, it’s much deeper than that. So I’m not ready for that. I’m afraid to bring it out in the fore. Mahabharat will never let you down, you might let it down. So, I don’t want that to happen,” he was quoted as saying to Galatta Plus.

    Earlier, the reports said that the makers have shelved the project for the fact that Aamir could not afford to devote two years of his life to making a web series. It was also said that back then the situation was not conducive for the superstar to play the role of Lord Krishna. Reportedly, the actor was waiting for a better time to make the Mahabharat as the scale on which he planned the project was commercially not viable back then.

    Talking about Laal Singh Chaddha, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Naga Chaitanya, and Mona Singh in pivotal roles. The film revolves around the life of a simple man named Laal Singh Chaddha and his extraordinary journey. Reportedly, the film also has Shah Rukh Khan in a cameo appearance. Directed by Advait Chandan and produced by Aamir Khan Productions, it is slated to hit screens on August 11
