The Mahabharata the Rs 1000-cr magnus opus finds support India Tv

As reported by Matrabhumi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written a letter to film producer BR Shetty announcing his full support for the most ambitious project of India.

The film helmed by ad-filmmaker Shrikumar Menon and produced by B R Shetty at a budget of Rs 1000 crore. Now, it is being said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also waiting for the release of the film.

According to the report, The Mahabharat team has sought an appointment to meet PM Modi to thank him. Apparently, members of Kerala Hindu Aikya Vedi had opposed the release of the film unless its title is changed.

Amid growing clamour to change the name of the film, Shetty reportedly wrote to the Prime Minister expressing his concerns.

Mr Shetty, joint non-executive chairman of London-listed NMC Health, announced in April he was investing $150 million in the film franchise, which is set to be India's most expensive film.

Mohanlal, who will be playing the lead, posted this video on Facebook. Telugu Superstar Nagarjuna expected to play the role of Karna in this mammoth project. "If they are trying to release the film under the name Mahabharatha, I bet that it will not see the cinemas".

The project will go on the floors in Abu Dhabi. Reports say that the movie would release by 2020, and the second part would hit the screens within the next 90 days. So, I made a decision to want this film first to be shot in there before we move to other parts of the world, shetty expressed his views to media. The films will have three different language versions - Malayalam, English and Hindi.
