Now, as per a media report, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries, Mukesh Ambani, is in talks with Aamir about the same. The collaboration of the two stalwarts will make 'Mahabharata' the biggest Indian film ever.
A Rs. 1,000 crore budget on the cards?
The media report further states that Ambani is quite excited about the project and may even provide a budget worth Rs. 1,000 crore to Mr. Perfectionist.
