It will be the first time that Sasha will be playing a mythological character. The discussions have been underway since long but now the makers have confirmed it today at the event of Amazon Prime Video.

Titled 'Ashwatthama-The Saga Continues' the movie will revolve around the complex life of the legendary son of Guru Dronacharya, a crucial character in Mahabharata who was the guru of Pandavas and Kauravas. While all the characters, heroes, and big warriors from the times of Mahabharata are dead, it is only Ashwatthama who continues to live on. It is believed that even today he walks on this earth and lives among us.

Apart from throwing a brief light on the past of Ashwatthama, the movie is expected to add a new twist by presenting the struggles of this legendary warrior in the present era caused due to rapid technological advancements.

Shahid Kapoor as Ashwatthama will prepare himself against these adversaries and the whole action-packed, high-octane narrative will be about the mythological figure fighting with the latest weapons but using the same old psychological game of beating the enemies.

The movie is also expected to explore the inner feelings and psyche of Ashwatthama and how over the years this immortal being has changed or suffered and now perceives this modern times that is so different from the era when he was born thousands of years ago.
