Two years have passed since the release of Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike that has made the Raazi actor heartthrob of the nation overnight. Now, Vicky Kaushal is expected to collaborate with his Uri: The Surgical Strike director Aditya Dhar once again. On the anniversary of Uri release, Vicky Kaushal has released the first poster of his upcoming movie with Aditya Dhar titled The Immortal Ashwatthama. It is going to be a sci-fi movie that has created a character based from the Mahabharata. In this movie, Vicky is expected to play the titular role.
Sharing the poster of The Immortal Ashwatthama, Vicky Kaushal has expressed his excitement about this project. Vicky has said “Ashwatthama is Aditya’s dream project and it required the backing of a visionary like Ronnie to bring this spectacle to audiences. It’s going to be a new space for me as an actor, exploring the newest form of technology alongside acting. Can’t wait to start the journey soon with this wonderful team.”
On the occasion, director Aditya Dhar has said “We are all overwhelmed with the love that URI has received over the last two years, and of course, with that love comes an added responsibility of living up to the expectations for our next collaborative venture. On Ashwatthama, we are working hard to create a visual spectacle that audiences across India would have never seen before. I promise, this would not just be a film, but an experience. More than the pressure, I am taking this film as a responsibility of telling this epic story, in the way it is meant to be told, and I hope, audiences shower the same love to Ashwatthama, as they did to URI.”
Producer of URI: The Surgical Strike Ronnie Screwvala is joining the team once again also. Regarding their collaboration, Ronnie Screwvala has said “Every film has its own journey, however, when the team of a National Award Winning-cum-blockbuster film that has been as loved as URI comes together, the expectations are bound to be high. It’s high on storytelling, deep in characters and revered in the world and visual effects. Language is not a barrier for this movie. We roll this year. I can’t wait to see Aditya’s vision translate to this spectacle on screen. I have to say this is by far the most ambitious movie I have attempted and we would love to see this one reach out to the widest audiences in India and around the world.”
