The film will be collectively produced by Wakaoo Films (Vipul D Shah, Ashwin Varde, Rajesh Bahl), Casa Media (Pranav Chaturvedi and Sujay Shankarwar) and Immortal Studios (Amish Tripathi and Aman Gurwada).
The film will be very interesting to watch because of Senthil Kumar. He is one of India’s most awarded Ad Filmmaker and the cinematographer of blockbuster movies like Magadheera, Eega, Baahubali: The Beginning, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion and more. We will next witness his work in the upcoming S. S. Rajamouli directorial RRR.

The novel is one of the bestsellers from Amish and tells the story of an unsung hero of the nation. Adapting it into a movie and presenting the story of the legendary king to a wider audience will give rise to such brilliant writers. Indian Film Industry needs stories like this, so that the upcoming generation will feel proud of their country.
