SRK wanted to play Krishna, but said role wasn't available
Earlier, reports suggested Aamir wasn't planning to do Maharabharata as it had become "tricky" to adapt mythological tales on screen, but SRK put all speculations to rest.
During an interview with DNA, SRK was asked what kind of role he would like to play.
He replied, "Krishna from Mahabharata," but added that the role has already been taken up by his friend Aamir Khan.

If speculations are to be believed, Mahabharata is being made on an extravagant budget of Rs. 1,000 crore.
Also, Aamir reportedly pulled out of Rakesh Sharma biopic Saare Jahan Se Achcha to work on Mahabharata. SRK took the lead role then.
Interestingly, during the promotion of Secret Superstar, Aamir told media that his favorite character is Karna in the epic series.
