The Immortal Ashwatthama starring Vicky Kaushal has been delayed by a few months but the actor is not disheartened as he believes there will be a better time to make the movie. The Superhero action film is being directed by Aditya Dhar of ‘Uri’: The Surgical Strike fame.
The makers had earlier announced in October 2020 that the film will release in April this year but in August the media reports emerged stating that the film has been shelved due to budget constraints.
Later on Producer Ronnie Screwvala in a statement had said that the film’s shoot has been put on hold for another six to nine months. Kaushal told PTI, “There will be a better time to make that film. More than disheartening, it is that thing that any film should be made at the best time for that film. “Every time the film is bigger than me or any individual attached to the film. So, we have to choose a time that justifies making that film. So, we are waiting for that time to come.”
The Immortal Ashwatthama is being planned as a trilogy that will be set in modern times. It marks the second collaboration between Dhar, Screwvala and Kaushal after ‘Uri…’ (2019).
The film is slated to premiere on October 16 on Amazon Prime Video.
