Aswini Dutt, producer and founder of Vyjayanthi Movies, said he is elated to have Bachchan on board.

“The late legendary Shri NTR was an admirer of Shri Amitabh Bachchan and had even acted in the Telugu remakes of a few of his superhit Bollywood films. Shri NTR and I had watched the landmark film ‘Sholay' several times when it ran for over a year at NTR's Ramakrishna Theatre.

“After all these years, it is truly a glorious and immensely satisfying moment for me to welcome Indian cinema’s greatest icon, Shri Bachchan to be a part of this prestigious movie under our banner, Vyjayanthi Movies,” Dutt said in a statement.

Ashwin said he feels lucky to have the opportunity to work with the cinema icon.

The film is slated for a worldwide release in 2022.
