Malayalam superstar Mohanlal is gearing up for Mahabharatham, who is reportedly going to be made on a budget of whopping Rs. 1000 crore. The film is an adaptation of MT Vasudevan’s book Randamoozham.
However, the project has already faced its first big blow in the form of protests from pro-Hindu groups over the film’s title. Apparently, members of Kerala Hindu Aikya Vedi had opposed the release of the film unless its title is changed. However, the unexpected support from PM Narendra Modi has come as a blessing for the movie.
According to a report of a leading daily, the film’s makers have received a letter from PM Modi in which he said he awaits the release of the film which will be a matter of pride for the entire nation.
The team of Mahabharatham, acknowledging Modi’s support, has sought permission to meet him and they have been granted.
