It took 300 Cr and three-and-half-years for director SS Rajamouli to make the electrifying two-part Baahubali series. And now, there is a buzz that the director is ready to start another big budget entertainer in 2018. Going by reports, he is likely to make the epic Mahabharata into a trilogy and with an estimated budget of 400 Cr. Interestingly, the film will have a pan-India casting.

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan have earlier expressed their interest to star in Mahabharata. Aamir was keen to play Krishna while SRK chose Karnan. Now, it would be interesting to see whether Rajamouli can unite the star on screens.
