In current times, with the pandemic showing no signs of slowing down, planning the shoot of a film is not easy. The shooting of Vicky Kaushal starrer The Immortal Ashwatthama which was set to begin in July has now been pushed to mid-August.
The Immortal Ashwatthama is a part-mythology and part sci-fi where Vicky Kaushal will play the role of a superhero. The makers have been planning to shoot it in Europe. According to reports in a leading daily, the team had to push their schedule to August due to visa issues. It’s reported that the team of The Immortal Ashwatthama has not procured its visas, which takes time these days because of the pandemic. Director Aditya Dhar wants to go to Europe for a recce with his team. He has to still select the cities and the areas he wants to shoot in, and then only the entire team and Vicky will join them. Hence Vicky Kaushal will only start shooting for it approximately by mid-August.
The Immortal Ashwatthama will also star Sara Ali Khan. Aditya Dhar who directed Vicky Kaushal in Uri teams up again with the actor for this film. Meanwhile Vicky Kaushal is not wasting time while waiting for the shooting to begin. We hear he’s completing the shooting for Mr Lele in the meantime as the film is being shot in Mumbai itself. He is also preparing for Ashwatthama by spending long hours at the gym and turning into a beast before he dons the cape.
