Vicky Kaushal’s The Immortal Ashwatthama is said to have been delayed by a few months by the makers. Now Kaushal has shared an update on the film, giving new hope to the fans.

“There will be a better time to make that film. More than disheartening,” the actor told PTI while adding that this can be said about the making of any project.

The actor also said that every film is bigger than him or others associated with the film, so the timing of making the film has to be justified. 

Kaushal said this means the team is waiting to restart work whenever the right time arrives.

Touted as a superhero action film, the film will be helmed by Aditya Dhar. Dhar made his debut with the hit movie Uri: The Surgical Strike, also starring Kaushal. The patriotic drama went on to be one of the biggest commercial hits of 2019. 

It was recently reported that Ashwatthama had been shelved due to budget constraints. 

Producer Ronnie Screwvala later, in a statement, said, the production has been put on hold for another six to nine months. 

Kaushal is currently awaiting the release of his upcoming movie, Sardar Udham directed by Shoojit Sircar. 

The film is based on the life of Sardar Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer, the former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab in British India, to avenge the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

It is slated to be released on Amazon Prime Video on October 16.
