It was announced that Ranveer Singh was set to collaborate with Shankar for a new version of 'Anniyaan', however, it was reportedly postponed. But now, some good news is that the project is a cinematic adaptation of the epic novel 'Velpari'. According to a report, it is quite an ambitious project which states that Shankar wants to make the biggest film of Pan India.

The novel clearly has everything - from a larger-than-life hero to a few life lessons and a love story. There is also scope for some great VFX sequences in the novel which can be scaled up. It is because of the quality of this novel that Ranveer and Shankar have collaborated. Due to its intensely long script, the film will be made in three parts. Shooting is scheduled to begin in mid-2023. Currently, Shankar is working on his film with Ramcharan and Kiara Advani. Ranveer will be seen in 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' directed by Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty's 'Cirkus'.
