Sonu will play Sadashiv in the historical drama, to be directed by Krish. The actor has already begun his preparation for the film.
"It's challenging to play a real life character because you know that it existed in the history and you have certain parameters to follow and stay within.
"I'm sure when you're working with a brilliant director like Krish, a huge ensemble and a brilliant technical team, there is no way to go wrong. So we are all on our toes to give
our best," Sonu said in a statement here.
The actor has previously been a part of period and historical dramas, including 'Jodhaa Akbar' and 'Shaheed-E-Azam'.
