Ashutosh Gowariker: 'I am no longer involved with any project on Buddha'

A couple of years back, there had been news that filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker was making a film on the life of Gautam Buddha, which he had reportedly started working on before opting out of the project.

Today, a tabloid reported that the project would be revived for the small screen in the form of a tele-series of around 50 episodes. The tabloid also reported that Ashutosh’s research and inputs would be a part of the project. However, when contacted, Gowariker rubbished the rumours and said, “I am no longer in anyway involved with any Buddha project on film or on TV."

Gowariker is known for making landmark films like Lagaan, Swades and Jodhaa Akbar.
