For the uninitiated, Durgavati is an official remake of popular Telugu film Bhaagamathie (2018), written and directed by G. Ashok. Anushka Shetty, known for her powerful performances in several Telugu movies including Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017), played the female lead in it. While Jayaram played the antagonist in the movie, Unni Mukundan was seen as Shetty’s fiancé in Bhaagamathie. It is unclear as to which role Riteish Deshmukh has been signed for.

Durgavati will be helmed by Ashok G, who also directed Bhaagamathie. Presented by Akshay Kumar and Bhushan Kumar and produced by Vikram Malhotra, the scary-thriller is set to begin production in a couple of days.
