Vicky Kaushal surely has an interesting line-up of films on his platter. He has a YRF film with Manushi Chillar which is supposed to be a comedy. Then he stars in a magnum opus, to be directed by Aditya Dhar. The two will team up after the success of Uri: The Surgical Strike. The actor’s character is based on the mythological character Ashwatthama, the son of Dronacharya who was given the boon of immortality in the Mahabharat.
Aditya Dhar told a leading daily that the film will go on floors by April 2021. For this three-part modern-day superhero film, Vicky Kaushal needs to train intensively and will have to weigh more than 100 kgs. Vicky will also have to train in horse-riding and various martial art forms, including jujutsu and krav maga.
Speaking about the project, Aditya said, “We will begin shooting in Europe, primarily the UK, and then head to Iceland. The final schedule will be in Mumbai. The plan may change depending on the COVID-19 crisis in these countries.”
Dhar has detailed out every aspect of the film during the lockdown. He began his discussions with the VFX team since that plays a big part in the film. The director has even zeroed in on the leading lady opposite Vicky Kaushal, but doesn’t want to divulge details just as yet. We’ll be waiting.
