Just recently, we had reported that Aamir Khan’s dream project ‘Mahabharata’ has received a backing from India’s Richie Rich, Mr Mukesh Ambani. It was said that Mr Ambani is investing almost Rs 1000 crore in this project, but we had no confirmation over it. But now, going by Javed Akhtar’s recent tweet, one can say that Mr Ambani definitely has something to do with this project.
The ace lyricist was slamming a troll that questioned about a Muslim (Aamir Khan) playing the role of a Hindu God, in this film.
Why should @AamirKhan, a Muslim, play in most ancient & sacred of Hindu epics, the Mahabharata? Is @BJP4India Govt of @narendramodi going to be like the @INCIndia & just stand by in name of secularism??? Would Muslims allow a Hindu to play life of Mohamed?https://t.co/fC7bvbHkZE

It was in response to this that Javed Akhtar tweeted,
Mr Francois Gautier , would you tell us what is your deal with the PR agencies Like 20 20 India and Adelman India . Are they paying you well to spread negativity against the most ambitious fin project of India “Mahabharta” planned by Mr Mukesh Ambani and Aamir khan

We do like his response to the troll, but we can’t overlook the fact that Mr Akhtar just confirmed that this project is being backed by Mukesh Ambani. It sure is a big deal.
