While Prasad will pen the story, SS Rajamouli's associate A. Mahadev will direct this project.

"When I heard the one liner from Prasad sir, it was good enough for me to come on board. I have known him for long, even before Baahubali came out. I'm quite aware of his experience, so naturally I'm thrilled to be working with him," Lawrence told IANS.
