After Saaho made loads of money at the box office despite received scathing reviews it was quite clear that Prabhas has established himself as the only pan-Indian superstar after the mega-success of Baahubali films. A couple of months back he had released the first look poster of his upcoming romantic drama, Radhe Shyam co-starring Pooja Hegde.
A few days later, a new movie, the yet untitled Prabhas 21 was announced. What made the announcement special was that it will mark Prabhas’ colloboration with Deepika Padukone. The mega budget film will be helmed by Nag Ashwin of Mahanati fame.
Last night Prabhas surprised his fans by releasing a video where he could be seen chatting with Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior director Om Raut. The duo teased a new movie announcement to be made the next morning.
And turns out the movie in question is a 3D action epic titled Adipurush. Sharing the first look poster of the film, Prabhas wrote, “Celebrating the victory of good over evil! #Adipurush @omraut @bhushankumar @vfxwaala @rajeshnair29 @tseriesfilms @retrophiles1 @tseries.official #TSeries”.
Check the poster:
Sharing the details about the film, Om Raut told Mumbai Mirror, “We embark on this journey with pride and passion and promise the audience an experience like never before”.
Bhushan Kumar shares a few details including the tease of a big name for the lead antagonist and that the movie will begin filming in January 2021. He said, “I grew up on tales rooted in our history and mythology. My father, Gulshan Kumar, was a devotee of Shiva, Ram and Mata Rani, and for me, this is a way of carrying his dream forward. That’s why, when Om narrated the script to me, I was immediately excited. Om and I, too, have pushed two of our films to a later date. This includes an action thriller with Kartik Aaryan because it needs to be shot in a particular country and it’s hard to make travel plans right now, but I can assure you that there’s no stopping Adipurush. We will start shooting by January with Prabhas leading the cast, which will include another big name playing the antagonist.”
Prabhas said, “Every role and every character comes with its own challenges, but portraying a character like this from our epic in the way Om has designed it, comes with tremendous responsibility and pride.”
