Shah Rukh Khan drops Mahabharata movie
According to sources, after learning that Rajkumar Santoshi is all set to base his next movie on the ancient epic, SRK has dropped his plans.
Last year, Shah Rukh Khan had expressed a desire to make a film based on The Mahabharata and he himself wanted to essay the character of Karna.

According to sources, after learning that Rajkumar Santoshi is all set to base his next movie on the ancient epic, SRK has dropped his plans.

A source said, "When SRK's ambitious project RA.One was getting ready for release, he was keen to make another science fiction film and had informed his team to work on the lines of Mahabharata. SRK has always been attracted to the subject. However, nothing was finalised. The entire team was working on the show, however now SRK has dropped the plan."

Shah Rukh Khan said, "I wanted to make a modern-day Mahabharata but I was on a flight and read that Rajji (Rajkumar Santoshi) is also making it. So I dropped the idea. Also a costume drama takes a lot of time and you need to have a certain look and you have to get into character for a year. As of now I am making my next home production and will also work on Farah's film."

Deja vu:

SRK added, "I remember when I was doing Chak De! India, I had delayed the film for a year. I told Adi (Aditya Chopra) that I needed to have a particular look so we would do it later. In fact, we had to let go of the girls who had initially been signed to be part of the cast. I guess I will do another costume drama sometime later in my career."
