Vicky Kaushal will be seen in The Immortal Ashwatthama helmed by Uri director Aditya Dhar. The project has been in the works for some time. While the director had planned to start the shoot in April this year, but due to the second wave of a novel coronavirus in India pushed his plans.
Aditya Dhar then hoped for a July start, but that too did not work out. Now, according to the latest report, the filmmaker and his team are hoping to kick start the film’s shoot in the coming month in Europe. However, getting visa clearance for the shoot in Europe has now put a dampener on his plans.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the visa process has turned out to be a lengthy one. A source revealed that “The team is awaiting visa clearance, which takes longer in the post-pandemic times. First, Aditya will travel with a lean team for the recce. He has not finalized the countries, and the venues may change, depending on the situation in Eastern Europe.”
Also, many parts of Europe have been witnessing floods in the past week or so. The source added, “The rest of the unit will join them only after the on-ground checks have been cleared. Vicky is likely to start the film between mid- and late-August, after wrapping up Mr Lele.”
It is being reported that the film will be shot on a start to finish schedule.
