One of the major breaking announcements in the recent past would be the news about Prabhas’ next film, Adipurush. The Baahubali star would be teaming up with director Om Raut of Tanhaji fame for a mythological epic that is planned to be shot on a grand scale. Prabhas will be seen playing the role of Lord Rama in this film that is based on Ramayana. Prabhas is undergoing intense physical training to play this character and this film is expected to give him a major breakthrough. Prabhas will be seen locking horns against Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan who will play the role of Lankesh (Raavana).

The face off between Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan is going to be a visual treat for the fans and the electrifying screen presence of both the stars is going to be one of the major attractions of the film. Adipurush will be produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar (T-Series) in association with Om Raut, Prasad Sutar and Rajesh Nair (Retrophiles). Penguin fame Kharthik Palani has been signed as the cinematographer of Adipurush and this film is expected to give a major breakthrough for the young talent. The shooting of the film is planned to begin next year, while the theatrical release is scheduled in 2022.

Recently, there were wide speculations that this mega biggie will feature Bollywood actress Urvashi Rautela as one of the female leads. It was reported that she would be playing the role of Sita, as Prabhas’ pair. However, the makers have refuted the rumours by stating that they’ve never approached Urvashi for the said role. An official statement from the makers said, “Stories and reports claiming that Urvashi Rautela has been approached to play the lead role in Adipurush are absolutely baseless and untrue. The makers have never offered any role from the epic drama to Urvashi or her team. After Prabhas and Saif, we are currently finalising the remaining cast to play the other characters, including the role of Sita, and Urvashi is not in the running for the same. We will make an official announcement when we lock someone. Till then, we urge people not to be swayed by such rumours and speculations,”.

A few weeks before, there were rumours that the film will have Keerthy Suresh playing the female lead, but the makers neither denied nor confirmed the news. It looks like we will have to wait for a few more weeks for an official announcement regarding the rest of the cast. However, one can be sure that Adipurush is going to be an exciting film to watch out for. Stay tuned to this space for more important updates.
