The Kai Po Che! director is excited to project the epic drama of Hindu mythology on the big screen

Director Abhishek Kapoor, known for his successful ventures like Rock On and Kai Po Che! will bring Indian mythology’s greatest epic The Mahabharata on the big screen. The Mahabharata expresses the universal truth; it has defined my understanding of spirituality and of all humanity.
