SS.Rajamouli, who has gained fame for directing period-based Pan-India blockbusters like 'Baahubali' and 'RRR,' appears to have inspired his former assistant Ashwin Gangaraju, who is currently preparing to make a period-based film titled '1770.' The film was formally announced on the 75th anniversary of India's independence, and it would be based on the classic novel 'Ananda Math,' penned by Bengali writer Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.
The film will be multilingual, would be sponsored by a consortium of producers, and will be guided by famous Bengali writer-director Ram Kamal Mukherjee.
The crew published the film's motion poster today to commemorate the 150th anniversary of 'Vande Mataram.' Ashwin Gangaraju is said to have previously worked on SS. Rajamouli films like 'Eega' and 'Baahubali,' and he made his directorial debut with 'Akaashavani last year.
The above-mentioned '1770' is his second directing endeavor, with the film's narrative and screenplay adapted and written by Rajamouli's father, KV. Vijayendra Prasad and the makers are said to be quite delighted with the project due to their work with the established and proven team.
The film will be developed and released on a large scale, and the producers have conducted extensive research on the film's subject and production. The 'Vandematram' hymn, which shocked the British empire and unified the people, was originally published by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee in 1870. More information about the film will be publicized around Diwali 2022.
