New Delhi: Actor Vicky Kaushal shared the first look of upcoming film ‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’ which will be directed by Aditya Dhar. This is not the first time the two of them are working together, in 2019, Dhar directed URI: The Surgical Strike which accelerated Kaushal’s fame.
Vicky Kaushal shared the first poster of The Immortal Ashwatthama, his next film with Aditya Dhar.
Kaushal said he was overwhelmed and ecstatic to work with Aditya Dhar, Rohinton Soli “Ronnie” Screwvala and Sonia Kanwar.
Aditya Dhar too shared the first look on his social media and he captioned it “Raising the bar higher for the superhero genre not only in India but across the world, this film is a high-concept visual spectacle in the making. From the team that brought to you URI The Surgical Strike, presenting @vickykaushal09 in and as #TheImmortalAshwatthama”
‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’ is going to be a superhero action film set in modern times, it is being planned as a trilogy. The movie will likely to begin shooting in April. The trilogy has its roots in the Mahabharata and will see Vicky Kaushal will take the lead as the mythological character Ashvatthama. Dhar had told Kaushal and Ronnie about the story, he thinks that Ashwatthama is one of the most powerful and mysterious characters from the Mahabharata as he is Dronacharaya’s son, and even though he is seemingly a brilliant warrior he is also said to arrogant and egoistic because he is immortal. And unlike other warriors like Arjuna and Karna, not much is written about him in various versions of the Mahabharata.
