Even 300 crore rupees wont be enough for Ramayan, says Madhu Mantena 

Filmmaker Madhu Mantena aspires to give big screen adaptations to Hindu mythological epics. A while ago, he was planning to make a big budget film based on Ramayan and he is one of the producers of recently announced Mahabharat series on Disney+ Hotstar.

In a media interaction, Madhu opened up about why he wants to make these ambitious projects. According to a report in ETimes, he stated, "The purpose that I gave myself about two years back is to bring back our history and mythology to our youth, because the thing is today technology has come to a place that if you can imagine it, you can see it. We haven't had the opportunity to present our mythology in all its glory to our audience and also to the world."

He added, "We want to start with the biggest one of them all--Ramayan. We had an idea a few years back and then we got Nitesh (Tiwari) and Ravi (Udyawar) to work on that. They have been doing extensive amounts of research--both literary and visual--to create a world that will make us proud of our epics. When I first told Ravi that I wanted to make this kind of a project, I felt that I didn’t have the maturity in my age to make something so grand."

When quizzed about the budget of this project, Madhu had stated, "Initially we didn’t have a budget in mind and even now, there is no figure. Right now we are trying to see how we can tell this epic in all its glory. But when I started the project, I had thought we can make the film for Rs 300 crore, but today, I don’t think that much will be enough to tell this story."
