Making mythological movies is not a cakewalk. Because, more than the money to invest, the directors and makers should have the courage and talent to create a visual wonder.
On this note, director Rajamouli always used to say that making Mahabharatham into a movie has been his dream from a long time. It seems like the director can now happily take up this project. No producers are coming forward to invest hundreds of crores into the film, even if the hero is Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan. Also, Mohanlal was supposed to star in Mahabharatham movie which was supposed to be made with a massive budget of 1000 crores. But, as both the movies got shelved, the line got cleared for our Tollywood finest director Rajamouli whose 'Baahubali' series made 2000 crores at the box office and shocked the entire world.
As soon as Rajamouli expressed that Mahabharatham is his dream project, both Bollywood and Mollywood tried to steal that project from him. However as both the projects are out of his way, Rajamouli can happily start his dream project.
