My favourite character is Karna, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to play him due to my physique. I may just have to play Krishna. I also liked the character of Arjun. He was the only person who asked Krishna why he had to kill his own people,” said the actor.
“My dream is to make Mahabharata one day, which I have not yet achieved or I haven’t even moved towards it. It’s too scary as a dream, maybe that’s why. It’s a big dream and so let’s see if I can do it one day,” he said in an event.
Certainly, with all this buzz, the movie is sure to be a blockbuster. Watching this epic on the silver screen will surely be a treat to the eyes. However, the official announcement about the movie is still awaited.
