Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal shared the first look of his upcoming ambitious film The Immortal Ashwastthama.
A movie touted to be a sci-fi thriller, Kaushal has reunited with director Aditya Dhar and producer Ronnie Screwvala after the hit, Uri: The Surgical Strike.
Sharing two new posters on Instagram, Kaushal wrote, “Overwhelmed and ecstatic! On the 2nd anniversary of ‘URI-The Surgical Strike’, the team gives you a glimpse into the world of #TheImmortalAshwatthama.”
“Cannot wait to get onto this journey with the dream team of @adityadharfilms, #RonnieScrewvala @rsvpmovies @soniyeah22 (sic).”
The posters show Kaushal’s character holding a lightning sword with multiple skyscrapers in the background.
The makers of the movie said that Uri’s second anniversary was the perfect time to present the world of ‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’ to fans.
In an interview, Kaushal said that ‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’ created a new space for him as an actor. “Ashwatthama is Aditya’s dream project and it required the backing of a visionary like Ronnie to bring this spectacle to audiences. It is going to be a new space for me as an actor, exploring the newest form of technology alongside acting,” Kaushal told Variety.
Written and directed by Dhar, ‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’ draws inspiration from the warrior Ashwatthama, who played a crucial role in the war between Pandavas and Kauravas in the Hindu epic Mahabharata.
