Talking about the biopic, the actor, who will be seen playing Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, said: “The preparation for Veer Savarkar has been going on and the shooting will begin soon!”
During the event, he had reunited with his 2020 Hit ‘Extraction’ producers Russo Brothers, his ‘Kick’ co-star Jacqueline Fernandes and Dhanush.
