However, in an interview Nitesh has said that he is keen to make this film soon. “I have not yet started thinking about the cast yet. First, we are trying to get it right on paper, with our execution, and with our thought process,” Nitish had said. And ever since the announcement, speculations about who will essay the role of the demi-god have been doing the rounds.
