Ranveer Singh is a big fan of Prasanth Varma's work and met him right after the release of Hanuman. When he saw Hanuman, he went gaga over it. The director has been in talks with the actor for a big-budget film for the last 3 months. They have met multiple times and continue to be in discussions. Ranveer is sold on the idea and acknowledges the fact that it’s a very ambitious project. It’s a yes from Ranveer for the film in principle and the team is now figuring on other modalities to get things started,” revealed a source close to the development.

The source further added that Prasanth is trying to create one of the most ambitious feature films of Indian Cinema. “Ranveer knows that such projects are challenging, and needs backing from strong producers and studios. While he is bowled over by the concept, script pre-visualization, and vision, he wants to announce the film once all the factors are covered. He is well aware of the budgets that the film needs, and hence is working with Prashanth to close in all the deals,” the source informed, adding further that Prasanth is new to the film fraternity and doesn't have much contact with production houses, the reason why Ranveer is also stepping in.
