"I was zapped and star-struck when Sonam first reached out to me to let me know she'd enjoyed 'The Aryavarta Chronicles'. "It's exciting that 'The Aryavarta Chronicles' series is in the hands of someone with great aesthetic vision. Sonam's passion for the story and its characters; and her down-to-earth attitude totally blew me away. I can't wait to work with her," Udayasankar said in a statement.

The 32-year-old actor has previously bought the film rights of Anuja Chauhan's novel 'The Zoya Factor'. Sonam is currently filming 'Veerey Di Wedding', which also features Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhasker.
