Shetty-Gowariker collab to be a period action-drama?

According to an older Bollywood Hungama report, Gowariker and Shetty are planning a big-scale pan-Indian project. The film is reportedly a period action-drama, a genre that both the filmmakers have successfully explored earlier in their careers. The said Bollywood Hungama also stated that the film will be a rooted drama set against the backdrop of a rustic backdrop.

Reports of the two filmmakers meeting had earlier surfaced in September as well. So now it remains to be seen whether either of the sides make any official announcement about the reported project in near future.

Ashutosh Gowariker, who rose to global popularity with films like Lagaan, Swades and Jodha Akbar, last made the Bollywood film Panipat in 2019, which was a box office failure.

Meanwhile, Rishab Shetty is currently busy working on the prequel to his 2022 blockbuster Kantara, which took the pan-India box office by storm with its impactful narrative and strong performance by Shetty himself. Kantara prequel will reportedly have stronger references to the local culture of coastal Karnataka, including the Bhoothakalam ritual, as promised in the recently-released teaser of the film.
