Speculations are rife that Allu Arjun or NTR might star in the big-budget sci-fi action film

One of the highly anticipated Bollywood films, ‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’, is making headlines over the change in its main lead. Initially, actor Vicky Kaushal was roped in for the lead role, but a few days ago, news reports emerged that actor Ranveer Singh had replaced Vicky Kaushal in the Aditya Dhar-directorial.

However, as per the latest reports, Ranveer is out of the race, and leading South superstars are in consideration for the role. As reported by ETimes, Allu Arjun and Jr NTR, who have gained pan-India status with their recent blockbusters ‘Pushpa’ and ‘RRR’, respectively, are in contention to headline the big budget film, which also stars Samantha Ruth Prabhu as the female lead. With so many names popping up, the netizens are confused and are demanding updates from the makers. 

‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’ was supposed to go on floors in 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic. Its production work was supposed to begin last year but was again delayed due to budget-related issues. The film was on the verge of getting shelved after producer Ronni Screwvala backed out of the project, but with the intervention of Jio Studios, the big-budget film is back on track again.

All three actors are currently busy with multiple big budget films in the pipeline. Samantha is working on ‘Citadel’ and ‘Kushi’, while Allu Arjun is shooting for Sukumar’s much-waited film ‘Pushpa 2 : The Rule’ and he also has a film with Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Jr NTR, on the other hand, who will soon make his Bollywood debut with 'War 2' co-starring Hrithik Roshan, is currently filming for #NTR30 and also has Prashanth Neel directorial #NTR31 in his kitty.
