The upcoming film Kedarnath is believed to be a love story which it is to be set in the course of a pilgrimage and obviously in the hilly terrains of Kedarnath as the name of the film suggests. The film will reportedly showcase the backdrop of one of the most prominent shrines of Lord Shiva.

"Kedarnath is a love story that unfolds during the course of a pilgrimage. It's important for me to look within and soak in the vast beauty of our country, culture and stories. India is a treasure trove of spiritual experiences that I want to present to the audience. This is a story that the world would love to watch," the filmmaker revealed.
