Mumbai: The 'Neerja' helmer believes in doing extensive research for this historical fiction series.
"I am on this project for years. Even in case of 'Neerja' we were extremely extensive in research. I like to research on a subject and then make it. Researching is easy making it is difficult," Ram said.
"Now for Bodhidharma, we are completely honest to that era at the same time there is not much known about the man," he said.
According to Prasoon, the most challenging part was apart from the central character most of the characters had to be imagined out of thin air.
"They are fictional but had to connect to the historical truth. One also decided to give it a philosophical nuanced approach whilst keeping the entertainment quotient alive," he added.
Ram too thinks it was not easy to work on this series.
"Since a lot had to be imagined I transported myself into that era and started breathing the mythical hydrogen and got immersed in creating the narrative," Prasoon adds.
The makers are yet to finalise the cast for the series but intend to start pre-production.
Both Ram and Prasoon are excited and nervous about how the audience will react to it.
"I am not scared about the success or failure of the series but I am concerned about portraying the value system correctly and make everyone proud of the work," Ram said.
The 10-episode historical action series titled Bodhidharma: Master of Shaolin will come on Amazon Prime.
"Its a ten episode series consisting of 45 minutes to one hour. We are still discussing about when to start the web series. We have just made the announcement," Ram said....
