Director Aditya Dhar also shared two posters of the film on Twitter. He wrote, "Raising the bar higher for the superhero genre, not only in India but across the world, this film is a high-concept visual spectacle in the making. From the team that brought to you URI The Surgical Strike, presenting Vicky Kaushal in and as The Immortal Ashwatthama."

Vicky describes The Immortal Ashwatthama as the biggest film of his career. “Ashwatthama is Aditya’s dream project and it required the backing of a visionary like Ronnie to bring this spectacle to audiences,” the actor says. “It’s going to be a new space for me as an actor, exploring the newest form of technology alongside acting.”

Aditya had won plaudits for his technical finesse on Uri: The Surgical Strike. Speaking about his new venture with Vicky, the director shares, “On Ashwatthama, we are working hard to create a visual spectacle that audiences across India would have never seen before. I promise, this will not just be a film, but an experience. I am taking on the responsibility of telling this epic story.” 

Uri: The Surgical Strike was about a covert Indian Army operation against a group of militants who had attacked a base in Uri, Kashmir, in 2016. The film had won four National Film Awards — Best Background Music Award, Best Sound Design, Best Actor Award (Vicky), and Best Direction.
