The ‘Josh’ is set to get high again as the blockbuster team of ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ is coming back! It has been confirmed that actor-director-producer trio, Vicky Kaushal-Aditya Dhar-Ronnie Screwvala are reuniting on a film based on the mythological character Ashwatthama.
Vicky confirmed the news on Instagram by posting on his stories, ‘Up next by Team URI’, followed by a tabloid report of the same.
Even Screwvals’s banner RSVP Movies made it official on its Twitter handle by posting, “Continuing to keep the josh high, team #URI is back with #Ashwatthama! @vickykaushal09 @RonnieScrewvala @AdityaDharFilms.”
Ashwatthama is a character in the Mahabharata who was among the key figures representing Kauravas in the Kurukshetra War against the Pandavas. It goes without saying that Vicky will be playing the lead character.
According to reports, Aditya has been working on the film for a few years now, even before ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ had released. The director is currently prepping for the movie and will begin the recce and the research.
Unlike ‘Uri’, which was shot in Siberia, this movie will be shot all over the country and the makers are targetting a mid-2020 release.
‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’, based on the Indian Army’s surgical strikes against terrorist camps in retaliation over the terror attack in Uri, was a phenomenon all over the country and even abroad. The movie enjoyed a terrific run at the box office, entering the top 10 of the highest-grossing films in Indian cinema history, with collections near Rs 250 crore. The movie was loved all over and a war cry ‘How’s the josh’ from the movie became so popular that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and many other leaders used it in their speeches.
