Shahrukh Khan to go international with the ‘Mahabharata’?

The King Khan dreams of making it big as Karna, the warrior prince from the epic tale of love and valour. But is he fighting a losing battle trying to capture the story for the big screen?

What’s Shahrukh Khan’s favourite name these days? (Hint: It’s not Katrina Kaif or Priyanka Chopra!). Well, it is Karna, the character from the Mahabharata. We recently woke up to the news of Baadshah Khan planning a trilogy on the epic. Looks likes Shahrukh is addicted to SFX these days and taking the Mahabharata to the next level, techwise, is riding high on his priority list these days. So are we happy about this? After Ra.One and Don 2, we’re not sure. “I think it would be fantastic, the world’s greatest film. It would be Mahabharata made like Lord of the Rings – a triology. The world would come to see it. The inherent story is one of the most interesting in the world. There are amazing superheroes, 20 times better than X-Men – gods of sun and wind who can make fire at will. There are monsters, ghosts…it’s really awesome,” SRK says, sounding gung-ho about it.

But talking is not the only thing that Shahrukh is doing now. He is planning to introduce the concept of Karna at the Berlin film festival next month, hoping to rope in partners for his venture; for this, he has put his SFX team at Red Chillies to work. So how much will this big project cost? Buzz suggests that the budget will go over Rs 200 crores, which will make it one of the costliest ventures in Bollywood. And Shahrukh is planning to hold talks with 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros to co-produce it. What’s more, SRK is even planning to rope in some international actors for his epic drama. Well, with such big names involved, we hope he gets the script and effects right this time. We surely are not looking forward to one more super-hyped though super-hollow project.

  • Divyajeet

    However, negativity is there regarding the movie. Only SRK is the one in the industry who can make such huge budget movies without any fear and appreciate more cinema like that to make bollywood evolve. Aamir is the other one but he has restrictions on his budgets. Rest all are just commercially viable.

    Don’t get me wrong but seriously Bollywood should just stick to Bollywood movies! I’m a huge SRK fan but seriously Bollywood should b Bollywood not try copying Hollywood cuz we all know those guys in Hollywood are on another level ! And mahabarta jus doesn’t seem like a good movie ! No offence best of luck tho !

    • Karan

      All SRK is doing is trying to introduce hollywood level technology and style of story telling into bollywood so bollywood isn’t overtaken by hollywod, especially on the technological front.

  • Maruka

    SRK – what are you doing – you are turning in to a diare old and over the hill – you have a family and a wife – you must get no love at home – you’re time over – so stop make a fool of youself and just go away !!

    • subham

    i love srk.and i am sure srk is the bigest king of bollywood.

  • Bruna

    It’s good that some famous Actor has thought of giving a shot at some Epic Character, usually Epic movies hardly have some famous actors in them.
    Moreover, Ra-One / Robot / Raavan are some movies which have shown great technical advancement in terms of Action/ Special Effects and Cinematography, lets see if SRK’S this new venture along with Hrithik’s Krish2 bring Bollywood to the level of Hollywood in terms of Technical Advancement.

  • millan

    Sharukh is the Real Superstar who wants to take the Bollywood movies to a new level…& i think this project can represent well enough towards the international films…Best of luck SRK…Love u..
