SS Rajamouli has also spoken about his dream project on Mahabharat over the years. He recently revealed that if he makes it, he will make it in 10 parts to do full justice to it. He said, “If I get to the point of making Mahabharat, it would take me a year just to read the versions of Mahabharat that are available in the country.

“Every film I make, I feel that I’m learning something to ultimately make Mahabharat. So that’s my dream and every step is towards that,” he added.
