The film based on Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, popularly known as Swatantraveer Savarkar will be on screen soon under the production of Sandeep Ssingh and directorial of Mahesh Manjrekar. Sandeep was in news for a long time since the Sushant Singh Rajput’s case arrived. After a long time, he is on the field again and the film will be his first historical maestro after the major laydown.
A source transmits to Bollywood Hungama, “The bid was between Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana. The team is clear on one fact – they need a terrific performer to pull off this challenging role and they zeroed in on Raj and Ayushmann. Both of them were spoken to, for the film and it seems the team might have expressed their interest in one of them already.”
Moreover, they says, “Ayushmann has a slight edge over Raj. Rajkummar has many films lined up which he needs to shoot next, whereas, Ayushmann clearly has delivered better box office numbers than Raj on average. The budget of this film will be high, so they want a bankable star and Ayushmann is their first choice. They are already in talks and it needs to be seen if they mutually agree on the project anytime soon.”
