After the stupendous success of Uri – The Surgical Strike, Vicky Kaushal is collaborating with Ronnie Screwvala and Aditya Dhar for an action entertainer, The Immortal Ashwatthama.
Son of Guru Dronacharya and Kripi, Ashwatthama fought with the Kauravas against the Pandavas in Mahabharat’s Kurukshetra war. He was born to the couple as an answer to Drona’s prayers for a son as valiant as Lord Shiva. A Chiranjivi (immortal beings who according to Hindu mythology will last as long as Kalyug), Ashwatthama was born with a gem in his forehead which gave him power over all living beings lower than humans. The Immortal Ashwatthama will bring Aditya Dhar and Vicky Kaushal together for the second time after URI.
The film is to be shot across India and New Zealand, Namibia, Tokyo, and Greenland. Ashwatthama, as a person, was powerful, strong and arrogant. Vicky will pull off the character to the screens and we are waiting to watch how well he does so!
