We all know that Dr BR Shetty, a UAE-based billionaire businessman and philanthropist is all set to invest Rs 1,000 crore on the project based on the epic saga of Mahabharata.
Also it will be narrated from the perspective of Bheema, which will be the central character.
Now news are out that this character is to be played by our Malayalam superstar Mohanlal.
In a video message posted on his Facebook page, Mohanlal said he doesn’t really remember the number of times he read Randaamoozham and always wanted to bring the epic tale to the big screen. And he said that the film is happening because of ad filmmaker VA Shrikumar Menon’s relentless efforts. “I grew up listening to the tales of the Mahabharatha. I consider myself lucky to be named to play Bheem. I am thankful to everyone and MT Sir for believing in me,” said the actor.
