U idiot fans of @Mohanlal Aka Laalten Aka Chota Bheem, he has 1.7million follower n I have 3.7million. Calculate to know who is bigger star.— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) April 19, 2017
KRK's pick to play Bheem in the mega-buck film - Baahubali actor Prabhas, who he named along with a hypothetical dream cast including himself as Lord Krishna. Prabhas' Baahubali co-star gets to be Duryodhan in KRK'S imaginary version of the ambitious film while Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, no less, are his choices for Arjun and Karan.
Starcast of #Mahabharatha- Prabhas- Bheem, Rana- Duryodhan, Aamir- Arjun, SRK-Karan, Ranbir-Abhimanyu, Salman-Eklavya, Deepika-Dropadi!— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) April 19, 2017
Meanwhile, fans of Mohanlal said that they were unaware of KRK's existence till his tweets about the actor brought him to public attention.
@kamaalrkhan Before Your Comment about Mohan Lal, We Malayalees didnt even Know Your Name. You should thank Mohanlal for making you famous in South India— Sarath kumar (@Sarathk16891368) April 19, 2017
Who is this person called KRK ? Where was he before? Never heard of him before. Was he watching Chotta Bheem & eating lollipops at his home?— anand neelakantan (@itsanandneel) April 19, 2017
The grand Mahabharata project will be financed by UAE-based businessman B R Shetty and will release in six languages and be dubbed in more. Like Baahubali, two parts have been planned and the first will go on floors in 2018. It is expected to hit screens in 2020.
