When two creative people have worked together in the past and their union has brought forth a huge success, it is great for the audiences if they plan to team up again. Speaking of this, actor-director duo, Vicky Kaushal and Aditya Dhar of Uri: The Surgical Strike fame are planning to team up once again for a period film based on a character straight out of the Mahabharata. Not just Vicky and Aditya, producer Ronnie Screwvala is also in for this period project helmed by Aditya and acted out by Vicky Kaushal. 

Yes, as per a report of Mumbai Mirror, Aditya had been working on the script of a film based on Ashwatthama, the son of Dronacharya. Also, Vicky Kaushal was the chosen one to play the historical role on screen. As per the report, the film will be mounted on a massive scale and will be shot in multiple locations in India. Vicky will be seen as the titular character and the film will be shot later this year. The trio of Vicky, Aditya and Ronnie want a mid-2020 release for the period film. 

As per the report, “After Uri, the makers wanted to return with something big and interesting. Aditya has been working on this script since a long time, even before Uri released, and when he sounded out Ronnie and Vicky, they immediately jumped on board. The film will be mounted on a big scale and will be shot later this year. Aditya is already neck-deep in research and will go on a recce soon. The film will be shot all over India and the makers are targetting a mid-2020 release.”

Your helmets, your gears, your guns... you hold on to, like your life depends on them. This was one army rule we all strictly lived by, through the Shoot of the Film. Once in costume, each and every one of us was responsible for our own gears. You wear them or hold them, it’s going to be with you through the span of the Shoot for that day. Our pockets would be full of protein bars, nuts and bags with bottles of energy drinks, because deep in those jungles sometimes no food trolleys or spot team were allowed to reach. Somedays I would wake up with my right index finger already bent imitating to pull the trigger. Those night shoots full of intense action, ofcourse were peppered with some fun banter and laughs in between shots amongst the boys, where our director @adityadharfilms would also join us. All of this feels worth it, with the generous love the Film is getting from you all. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping the Josh so high. Also, a big shout out to the wonderful set of co-actors I got to work with, that formed our SF team. Dhairya, Guru, Padam, Sparta, Dang, James, Rahul, Nishant, Tashi, Anurag, Himanshu, Beant, Sapru Saab, Gagan, Dev.

After the massive success of Uri: The Surgical Strike, this surely is a promising project in the making for Vicky Kaushal and Aditya Dhar. Meanwhile, Vicky is also a part of another period film helmed by Karan Johar titled Takht. The film stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Anil Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor besides Vicky Kaushal. Apart from that, Vicky is a part of Shaheed Udham Singh biopic which is helmed by Shoojit Sircar. Vicky will start working on it soon.

Great news, hats off to Ronnie S. I am confident that Aditya Dhar and Vicky Kaushal will do a great job, this comment is coming from Switzerland and an non Indian. Uri is a great war movie, even better than some Hollywood ones. Wish Aditya Dhar and Vicky Kaushal all the luck, Ronne S. seems like producer with heart of gold, he seem to be doing some social work, may God bless him
