Ashutosh's next directorial venture will bring one of the most iconic characters in history to the big screen, BUDDHA. The story focuses on the life of Prince Siddhartha and his journey to enlightenment where he becomes Gautam Buddha. In the vein of Gladiator the film, Buddha is an historical epic story that appeals to young as well as mature global audience.

Producer Dr Bhupendra Kumar Modi says, "This will be the first global film coming from India for the global audience about the man who brought India to the world map and the philosophy that will make the world live as one family. This film is long overdue and the need of the hour in the world we all are living in. The search for Siddharth's character in the film will be one who the youth of the world can connect with."

Further Ashutosh Gowarikar adds, "I have always been fascinated with the story of Prince Siddhartha who renounced his life of luxury and family, in search of an answer to what causes human suffering and subsequently attained enlightenment and came to be known as Buddha. To portray the innocence of Prince Siddhartha and the compassion of the 'enlightened one', I am looking for a fresh face. And hence, this nationwide worldwide search."
