Recently, it was announced that South superstar Mohanlal will essay the role of Bheem in an upcoming film on India’s greatest epic Mahabharata, which is being touted as the most expensive film to ever be made at a cost of Rs. 1000 crore and controversial critic Kamaal Rashid Khan‘s latest tweet about the same, made him the object of immense outrage down South.
Taking to his Twitter page, KRK wrote, ”Sir @Mohanlal you look like Chota Bheem so then how will u play role of Bheem in Mahabharata? Why do you want to waste money of BR Shetty?” Needless to say, this angered thousands of Mohanlal fans, who took to social media to lambast Khan for his mocking tweet.
Meanwhile, Mahabharata is being bankrolled by UAE-based businessman BR Shetty and it is said to be planned in English, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, and dubbed in all major Indian and foreign languages. The film is expected to go on floors in September 2018, and its first part would be released in 2020 and the second part will hit the screens 90 days later.
