SS Rajamouli, who currently awaits the release of his much-anticipated film “Baahubali: The Conclusion”, is aiming to begin his dream project “Mahabharata” soon.
And now there are reports that the film will star three major stars of the Indian film industry. The director apparently is planning to cast Aamir Khan, Rajinikanth and Mohanlal in his epic trilogy.
Close source said “Rajamouli is currently busy with “Baahubali 2″, but he is thrilled about “Mahabharat”. He wants to take Aamir Khan, Rajinikanth and Mohanlal on board for this project. He is yet to decide on the characters these stars will portray.” Rajamouli is expected to make the big announcement in next few days.
Aamir, during promotions of Dangal, has expressed that he would like to collaborate with Rajamouli for Mahabharat, “I am a huge fan of Rajamouli’s work and if he ever plans to make ‘Mahabharata’, I’d love to play Krishna or Karna. I might actually go with Krishna.”

Aamir said he would like to work with south Indian stars like Rajinikanth, Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan, adding that he was open to do a south Indian film, if the right script came his way.
The film will reportedly be made in the next few years and the actors need to dedicate a huge amount of time for the project. The filmmaker was sceptical if such big stars will put everything else on backburner for his magnum opus. The film will be made on a budget of Rs 400 crore. This project is also said to have grand visuals at par with that of “Baahubali”.
Meanwhile, “Baahubali 2” is gearing up for a grand release on April 28. As per reports, the film has already raked in Rs 500 crore worldwide ever before its release.
