In a recent interview with Mid Day, he opened up about the film and what plans he has for it. Talking about the plot, he revealed, “This film has elements of science dominating the narrative. It is a fictional story, but is inspired by true events.” He maintained the mystery without revealing any further.
The film will go on floors only by 2022 and Jagan Shakti added, “We want to shoot the film across four countries. But at the moment, even doing a recce in any country [is not a possibility]. So, we’ll have to wait it out with a smile. Besides, Akshay has to wrap up his prior commitments before we can collaborate.”
Opening up about working with Akshay Kumar again, he said, “He is punctual, and tends to finish his films before time. I have worked with him on PadMan  as well, as an associate director. He is so lively; when he is around, we know that things will work out.”
Well, we are eagerly waiting for this one as well!
