Vicky Kaushals The Immortal Ashwatthama is back on track ?

Actor Vicky Kaushal was supposed to star in a big budget sci-fi action flick titled 'The Immortal Ashwatthama' and he had even started prepping himself for the part by learning archery and horse riding. However, few months back, it was announced that makers have decided to scrap the project due to budget and others issues. Fortunately, the latest buzz suggests that 'The Immortal Ashwatthama' is back on track and Vicky will start filming for it after wrapping up Sam Manekshaw biopic.

A source close to the development told Pinkvilla, "Vicky and Aditya share ample of passion for The Immortal Ashwatthama. The film is like a dream they saw together, and hence Adi going ahead with the film without Vicky was never a question. There was some back and forth happening over the last few months on the budget and casting front, but the film is now all geared up to go on floors next summer."

The source further added, "It’s an extremely costly film, but Aditya has big ambitions. He want to take things to the next level and has worked very hard over the last 3 years to have all the source material in place. Even on the visual front, he has made a storyboard, which has impressed all the studio heads at Jio."

Giving an idea of the scale of this ambitious project, the source said, "It’s a film that can change the tide for Hindi cinema. Aditya wants to introduce the Immortal Ashwatthama from Mahabharata in a superhero format, and believes that his story can cross national boundaries too. He is all excited and is finally and actually set to take the film on floors by next summer."
