Nag Ashwin told Variety: “We shot about 25 or 30 days, but there’s a lot of action still left. It’s almost like a whole new production that’s going to start.” “Every loose end or thread that we left hanging has to be wrapped up. Obviously, the most important thing will be the face-off between these three, which will be between Yaskin, who can now wield the Gandiva, which is thought to be the most powerful weapon, versus Karna and Ashwatthama, who are the most fearsome warriors,” he added.
