The film was announced a few months ago, and on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, the makers released a special video with the film's lead saluting Mahatma Gandhi on his 148th birth anniversary.
The video starts with both the stars talking about Father of the Nation.
"A man, made up of fire and obsession. Made for the country and by the country, name was Mohandas but was known as Mahatma to the whole nation," they said in the video.
Earlier this year, as the announcement made its way on social media sites, Varun and Anushka introduced the film's name in a quirky fashion.
Engaging in a rather interesting and 'shudh' hindi conversation, the two actors confirmed the news on their respective handles.
The film will go on floors in January 2018 and will release on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. (ANI)
