Trivia

According to the making-of documentary "Mahabharat ki Mahabharat," Mukesh Khanna was initially selected for the role of Drona, but was later re-cast as Bheeshma after producer B.R. Chopra saw him in full costume and make-up for the role of Drona and uttered, in Hindi, "This is our Bheeshma." See more »

Quotes

Karna: Do you know that I have two sweethearts?
Duryodhana: Really? Who are they? If necessary, I will kidnap them to get them for you!
Karna: They are not girls, my friend - besides, I can only get one of them and not the other!
Duryodhana: What do you mean?
Karna: It is simple - one is the death of Arjuna, the other is my own death.

Awe-Inspiring Series
11 September 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

There never was ,is or will be anything greater than BR Chopra's Mahabharata on Indian TV ..... As Mahabharata is the king of epics,this TV series is the KING of TV SERIES. All credit goes to splendid production value,out-of-the-world dialogs (by Dr. Raza........may his soul rest in peace), superb acting,great action and a very 'real'casting. Every character has played his /her part so well that we can' imagine anyone else playing them now.... . Incidentally ,Mahabharata is the longest epic in the world 4 times longer than 'Odyssey'.It is supposed to have been written by Lord Ganesha and dictated by Ved Vyasa.Its historical proofs are scattered all over northern India.
