Young Rebel Star Prabhas is one of the most talented and bankable actors in the country. Post the stupendous success of the Bahubali film series, Mirchi star is at the peak of his popularity. So much so that producers do not hesitate to invest crores of rupees in his movies. Few months ago, Prabhas made official announcement regarding his project with Nag Ashwin, which is touted to be a science fiction drama. Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has been roped to play the female lead role. Nag Ashwin is counted amongst highly celebrated filmmakers in the South Indian Film Industry. His incredible works involve films like Yevade Subramanyam, Mahanati and Jathi Ratnalu. Nag Ashwin and Prabhas film was supposed to go on the sets in the month of December and was expected to hit the theaters in 2021. The producer Ashwini Dutt was ready to spend Rs 350 Cr for Prabhas and Nag Ashwin’ film.
But then, Prabhas and Om Raut made official announcement regarding their project Adipurush, which gave a huge jolt to Nag Ashwin. The director Om Raut’ statement regarding Prabhas and Adipurush made Nag Ashwin into a grief-stricken state.
According to Om Raut, Adipurush is based on Ramayana in which Prabahs will be seen as Lord Ram. The movie will go on sets in 2021 and will release in 2022.
