Why did The Immortal Ashwatthama get shelved?
Aditya Dhar stated that the vision the makers have for The Immortal Ashwatthama is too big to work for Indian Cinema. He mentioned that the quality of VFX they plan to bring, nobody has strived for it. Thus, he cannot make the film until the technology required to fulfil the vision becomes affordable in India. He gave an example of James Cameron and his move Avatar. Aditya Dhar said that the Hollywood filmmaker had to wait for years to make The Avatar. Aditya Dhar further added, “I’m, of course, not him, but if we have to achieve excellence, there can’t be any mediocrity. I can’t make it for the heck of it. Even if it takes five years of my prime time, the film has to be brilliant.”
