Would Hrithik Roshan have been a good Buddha as it is spreading news that Shyam Benegal was planning to cast Hrithik Roshan in his next film about Gautam Buddha in which Hrithik Roshan will play the role of Guatam Buddha. This was the joint project of the two production companies Beyond Dreams Entertainment Limited and Light of Asia Foundation of Colombia which having worked with each other decided to work on the multi-million venture in the form of this film. Atul Tiwari was to write the story, screenplay and dialogue.

Location had also been finalized in Sri Lanka. Thousand acres of land near Colombo was acquired to build the set. There’s no buzz on the film now. It was expected to go on the floor in mid-2008 and was slated for a mid-2009 release.
