Nagarjuna to play Karnan in Mohanlal’s 1000 crore project The Mahabharata

The Mahabharata is touted to be the most expensive Indian movie ever. Renowned ad filmmaker VA Shrikumar is directing this film. His team is currently working on the pre-production for this mammoth project. UAE based Indian businessman Dr BR Shetty is investing Rs 1000 crores for this epic project.

The Mahabharata is the official adaptation of legendary writer MT Vasudevan Nair’s novel Randamoozham, which in turn is based on the Indian epic Mahabharata.

Mohanlal has already been confirmed to play the central character of Bheema in this movie. The makers had informed that several leading actors from other industries will be part of this movie.

Now, there are widespread reports about Telugu superstar Nagarjuna playing a pivotal role in the movie. He has been approached to play the role of Karnan. Nagarjuna himself revealed this bit of information during a recent media interaction.

He was quoted as saying, “My next film after RGG (Raju Gari Gadhi – 2), could be Mahabharata and I was asked by writer Vasudevan Nair to play Karna’s role in the movie. I’m aware of Shrikumar’s efforts to make the movie for the past four years and I got this offer, two years ago. Recently, Vasudevan asked me once again for my dates. I told him I will be a part of the movie if my character is also given enough importance and the writer said, it will be a prominent role. I’m waiting for the project to shape up completely and then I can share more details about it.”

The chances of Nagarjuna working in The Mahabharata is quite high as he has worked with VA Shrikumar earlier in several of his ad films. Nagarjuna is also a very popular actor in the South. So that will certainly help the commercial prospects of the movie. Meanwhile, there are also reports about Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan being part of this prestigious project. We are still waiting for an official word from the makers.
