Vivek Agnihotri is the man in the director’s chair and he will also serve as the writer of the film. His wife, National Awardee actor Pallavi Joshi, is bankrolling “Parva,” while Prakash Belawadi will pen the screenplay. Agnihotri also shared a video clip to explain the film, stating, “What is ‘Parva’? Watch.”

In the video, he is heard saying, “It’s said that Mahabharat is the source of all stories. Is it just mythology or India’s consciousness? The question remains: is it history or mythology? After researching for 17 years, Padma Bhushan winning SL Bhyrappa wrote a modern classic, Parva. It’s called a masterpiece of masterpieces.
