The Walt Disney Company is filming a series based on the epic Sanskrit poem ‘Mahabharat’, which tells the tale of a warring dynasty between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, will be released in 2024, Gaurav Banerjee, head of content at Disney+ Hotstar said at the media giant’s three-day D23 extravaganza event held in California last month.

Madhu Mantena, one of the series producers said, “For centuries Indian epics have captured the imagination of billions around the world. These epics are deeply woven into the very fabric of our nation. The ‘Mahabharata’ – one of the oldest epics in India, despite being as old as time, is still relevant today for the many lessons and words of wisdom hidden within its ancient verses.”
