Mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan may play the role of Bhishm Pitamah in a six-hour movie based on the great epic Mahabharat.

According to a news report, Ravi Chopra , who directed the popular 1988 television serial based on the great epic, (which was produced by his father B.R. Chopra ) is planning the film.



The news report also said that there are rumors that Bachchan may play the role of Bhishm Pitamah and Rani Mukherjee may portray the character of Draupadi.

Chopra neither confirmed nor denied these rumors.

The movie is expected to cost 1.5 billion rupees (US$32.6 million; euro25.34 million), according to the news report.

This will be the longest film in the history of Bollywood, but it will be screened in two parts, Chopra was quoted as saying by the news report.

"I will release it in two parts - part one on Friday and the second part on the following Friday," Chopra said.

"We are going to get a special effects team from Hollywood and the movie will have an international look so that we can market it abroad also," he said.

Chopra has just completed his latest film Babul , which stars both Bachchan and Rani and is likely to be released next month.

"I have been toying with the idea of making this epic into a film, but I was tied up with my prior commitments. But now that 'Babul' is wrapped up, I can take up this challenge," the news report quoted him as saying.
