Filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker is all set to come up with a new film titled 'Shankar'.
The film will bring the life and wisdom of 8th-century Vedic scholar and teacher, Adi Shankaracharya, to the screen.
The announcement was made on the sidelines of the installation of 108-ft tall 'Statue of Oneness' of Adi Shankaracharya on the bank of the Narmada river at Omkareshwar in Madhya Pradesh.
MP CM Chouhan unveiled the statue
State Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who unveiled the statue, later said that the time is absolutely right to explore the profound impact of Adi Shankaracharya's teachings, his intellectual prowess, and his tireless efforts to unify the diverse strands of Sanatan Dharma.
"And I am extremely happy that we are collaborating with the filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker for the same," he said.
