As the Indian cinema is evolving with real content, the depiction of true stories on the big screen, aids to broaden the limited acknowledgment of the subject. With filmmakers vesting their interests in the same, the industry is exploring this phenomenon that not only strikes engagement with the audience but also resonates commercial viability.

As per the latest reports, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri is all set to make a trilogy on Hindu civilization with a budget of Rs 250 crore. The dream project is expected to go on floors in next five years.

The project has already kick-started with 10 member research panel, which includes scholars, historians, archaeologists, astrologists and anthropologists and the extensive research is headed by Vivek Agnihotri. The filmmaker will roll out casting for the film after his next release The Tashkent Files.

Informing about the same, Vivek Agnihotri revealed to a leading news agency, "The Tashkent Files in itself was a humongous project to pull through. After 3 years of intensive research, finally we are in post-production and looking at an early 2019 release. As for my trilogy, I would say we have just laid the foundation. The project is gigantic in terms of scale and we will cover the Vedas, Mahabharata, Indus Valley and the various forces of nature that have been central to the Hindu civilization's existence."

Talking about gathering funds for the ambitious project, the filmmaker added, "I was conducting sessions at Purdue and Oxford University and more recently was called for speaking at the World Hindu Congress at Chicago where 125 years ago Swami Vivekananda made his historical speech. Enthusiasts and academicians took note of my work and came forward to fund the project."

The trilogy has attracted a group of donors while the production and research work will be under the supervision of Karmandya Studios in Houston.

Vivek Agnihotri said, "This is a very ambitious projects and needed deep pockets. Most importantly I wanted a larger body to associate because it gives you confidence that people believe in your concept."

The first installment of the trilogy will depict the origination of Hindu civilization which will walk the audience across the lives of Brahma to Buddha.
