According to the Indian Express report, Khan described his dream project as Mahabharata and said it was like performing a "yagna". "When you're making Mahabharat, you're not making a film, you're doing a yagna," he said. "It's not a film, it's much deeper than that. So I'm not ready for that. I'm afraid to bring it out in the fore. Mahabharat will never let you down, you might let it down."
Speaking about failures he's seen in the course of his career, Khan said, "See, a film that doesn't work is an opportunity. You learn exactly where it's gone wrong. Wherever I am today, is because of my failure and not my success. I hold my failures close to my heart, because those are the ones [that] have struggled the most. But they teach you a lot. So I value my failures a lot."
