After the success of URI: The Surgical Strike, Vicky Kaushal, Ronnie Screwvala and Aditya Dhar decided to take things a notch higher with The Immortal Ashwatthama, a modern-day superhero film based on the King Ashwatthama from The Mahabharata. It’s said to be one of the costliest Hindi films and the prep work has been going on for over 2 years now. The film features Sara Ali Khan as the female lead and we had previously reported how the actress has an action-packed role in this film.
Both Vicky and Sara have been prepping for their respective roles in the film over the last few months, learning new forms of action. According to Pinkvilla, the makers have locked their shooting schedule too. “The film goes on the floors in the month of September with a five-month marathon schedule. The idea is to wrap up the film by January 2022 and being a post-production heavy film, invest time on the edit and post production of the film. A tentative shoot schedule has been prepared,” revealed a source close to the development.
