Despite charming performances from Vidya & Farhan, this has nothing new to offer
If you were hoping that animation films would come of age with this purported epic, you are in for a disappointment. Though the characters from the Mahabharat have faces and voices of the biggest stars, the images do not add up to a compelling canvas. Not by a wide margin.
"I don't think I have a story right now which is worthy either of them. I am working on stuff that I will hopefully be able to direct, and sometime in the future I get to work with both of them depending on the story or the script is," said Kunaal Roy Kapur
"Now I realise why Vidya is such a big star. It is because she is so grounded. The day she came to the set, she made it very clear that, 'Don't promote this film as Vidya Balan's film. This is Mangesh's film and let's stick to that'," said Mangesh

"After The Dirty Picture, I was offered eight to 10 biopics but since I had done The Dirty Picture, I wanted to do it later. Then I got this opportunity. But this is not a biopic on Geeta Bali. You don't see all shades of her. I think I get dragged to real life stories," said Vidya Balan
Vidya Balan is reportedly upset because of the sudden release of the Hindi version of Malayalam film Urumi in which she did a cameo role six years ago. The posters however suggest that Vidya has a full-fledged role in the film, which she thinks can be misleading for fans.
Actress Vidya Balan said that she wants to explore her 'dark side' and is on the hunt for "good scripts" that allow her to do that, at a recent book launch event in Mumbai. The Kahaani star, who will next be seen with Amitabh Bachchan in Te3n, said: "It was wonderful working with Big B."
Vidya Balan launched author Piyush Jha's book Raakshas at an event in Mumbai on December 11. The actress, who is a bookworm, said that initially, she was only sent the first three chapters of the book by the author. Vidya also revealed that she found it so intriguing that she arrived at the book launch.
Actress Vidya Balan says that it is the kind of film an actor does that dictates the pay. "I can't expect to get paid like in a big budget film, with the kind of films that I do," said the Kahaani actress.
