Apart from Karna, Mahabharatha has space for several other prominent characters. The makers have already confirmed that some top stars from Indian cinema and Hollywood will be part of the cast. If reports are to be believed, a global launch will be held shortly where the cast and crew will be officially announced. A New York based production house United Film Kingdom is investing over Rs 300 crores for this film.
