The pandemic has compelled several filmmakers to hit pause button on many of their projects, but Aditya Dhar thanked his stars that his magnum The Immortal Ashwatthama has remained unaffected.
The three-part modern-day superhero film, having its roots in the Mahabharata, sees Vicky Kaushal as the mythological character who was given as the boon of immortality.
The actor will have to weigh more than 100 kilos. Agreeing to that the locations play a crucial role in such a subject, he is relieved to have ticked the item off his to do list.
The shooting will begin in Europe and primarily in the UK, and then head to Iceland. The final will be scheduled in Mumbai. The plan could change, ensuring safety, depending on the situation of COVID-19 in these assigned countries.
The lockdown has been proved productive for the director, who ensured every detail to be attended during the pre-production.
“We have finalised with our HoDs and begun our preparation with VFX team.
Since nobody attempted such a subject before, we don’t have a reference point”.
So, the VFX and design teams have to use their imagination and create from scratch.” Though Dhar has zeroed in on the leading lady, he refuses to reveal the details until the deal is sealed.
