Mahabharatham is being made in the Malayalam language too. The crazy epic was announced sometime back and the complete actor Mohanlal was expected to be a part of it. Mohanlal was roped in to play Bheema, one among the Pandavas. The film will be narrated through the eyes of Bheema and the project was supposed to be made on a grand scale.
The movie is based on a novel penned by popular writer Vasudevan and a Dubai based businessman came forward to bankroll the project. Sri Kumar Menon is the director of the film. The director was in an agreement with the writer to finish the film in three years but there is no update even after four years of making a deal.
The writer Vasudevan was upset with this and he is said to have demanded the film unit to give back his script and he is making plans to deny the permission further. Vasudevan updated this on his Facebook profile and added that he would get the details from the director by meeting him. It looks like the film is undergoing some troubles now and more clarity on the project will be out soon.
