Vicky Kaushal on The Immortal Ashwatthama: ‘The past 18 months have been disheartening’
Actor Vicky Kaushal’s upcoming film, The Immortal Ashwatthama has been in the making for quite some time now. It has been reported that the film has been shelved while some said that film is put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, speaking about the same in an interview, Vicky revealed that he feels disheartened for the past 18 months; however, he thinks logistically, it is not the correct time. The Sanju actor also said the team want to make the film when it is logistically convenient for the producers.
“The past 18 months have been disheartening for various reasons, with all that’s going on in the world and this becomes a little part of it. Everybody does understand the reality of this situation around us,” the actor told Pinkvilla.
He adds, “Making a film requires somebody to put in a lot of money – there are various factors involved to make a film happen. If it is not logistically the correct time to do it in the given circumstances, then it’s not the correct time to do it. We want to make a film, where it is safe for everybody and it is logistically convenient for the producers. Eventually, you do understand the logic.”
