Reports emerged last week suggesting that Vicky Kaushal would not be starring in “The Immortal Ashwatthama,” an ambitious film directed by “Uri: The Surgical Strike” (2019) director Aditya Dhar. Reports suggest that speculation around Ranveer Singh being approached to take the lead role is false.
There have been reports that South superstars like Jr. NTR and Allu Arjun have been given The Immortal Ashwatthama. “Getting a star from the South is a safer bet. The moment an actor like Jr. NTR or Allu Arjun comes on board, the film automatically becomes a Pan-India project and will be dubbed in multiple languages. It also leads to an increase in box office revenue. With Ranveer, that is not possible as he is not a pan-India actor. Forget South, even Hindi audiences may not turn up in huge numbers, courtesy his back-to-back debacles,” it quoted an industry insider as saying.
Earlier reports indicated that Yash Raj Films (YRF), the production company that launched Ranveer Singh’s career, has chosen to take a hiatus from working with the actor for the foreseeable future. The decision came as a result of all six films that the banner produced with Singh failing to meet box office expectations.
