"The film was developed and finalised sometime ago. It is hard-core action, it is going to be like Hollywood films. We have got Aditya on board.

"It requires the actors to work on their physicality before we begin shooting, so all that is happening simultaneously," the source said.

An official announcement will be made soon. The makers are in the process of locking the primary cast for the film, which will go on floors later this year.
