In 2018, Aditya Dhar’s directorial debut, URI: The Surgical Strike produced by Ronnie Screwvala, took the nation by storm, garnering critical acclaim and box office gold. He won three national awards. While Vicky Kaushal received a national award for her performance, the director – Aditya Dhar also won the prestigious award for her directing. As the film turns two today, the Vicky – Aditya – Ronnie trio released the first creative look for their upcoming collaboration, Ashwatthama, which is a futuristic science fiction, based on a character from the chapter of Mahabharata.
Aditya shares “We are all overwhelmed by the love URI has received over the past two years, and of course, with that love comes an added responsibility to meet the expectations of our next collaborative endeavor. Sure Ashwatthama, we are working hard to create a visual spectacle that audiences across India would never have seen before. I promise it wouldn’t be just a movie, but an experience. More than the pressure, I take this movie as a responsibility to tell this epic story, the way it’s meant to be told, and I hope, Ashwatthama, as they did for URI. “

“Every movie has its own journey, however, when the crew of an award-winning national blockbuster Cum that has been as beloved as URI meets, expectations are bound to be high. It’s rich in storytelling, deep in characters and revered in the world and visual effects. Language is not an obstacle for this film. We are driving this year. I can’t wait to see Aditya’s vision translate into this show on screen. I have to say this is by far the most ambitious film I have attempted and we would like to see this one reach the widest audiences in India and around the world, ”said Ronnie Screwvala.
Vicky Kaushal describes Ashwatthama as the biggest movie of his career and thinks working with Aditya and Ronnie again feels more like coming home to him. “Ashwatthama is Aditya’s dream project and it took the support of a visionary like Ronnie to bring this show to the public. It will be a new space for me as an actor, exploring the latest form of technology in addition to acting. I can’t wait to start the adventure soon with this wonderful team ”, concludes Vicky.
