Ram Kamal Mukherjee has created this concept and Shailendra Kumar and Suraj Sharma will bankroll this big budget entertainer.
Ashwin Gangaraju, who assisted SS Rajamouli on Eega and the Baahubali movies, is gearing up for a big-budget period drama that will be made in six Indian languages. The upcoming movie will have state-of-the-art VFX and solid actors in key roles.
