Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan have kick-started shooting for their upcoming period drama titled Adipurush. Prabhas shared the news on Instagram.
Om Raut is the director of Adipurush. The film is a 3D action drama and Prabhas is protagonist Adipurush while Saif plays the role of villain named Lankesh.
What did Prabhas share?
Taking to his verified social media handle, Prabhas shared an update about Adipurush. The actor Instagrammed a poster of the film’s title and captioned it: “#Adipurush aarambh.”
The multilingual period drama Adipurush is an adaptation of Indian epic Ramayana. The tagline of the film reads, “Celebrating the victory of good over evil.” Although the makers are yet to finalise the female lead, there are speculations that Kriti Sanon will be seen in Adipurush.
The actor has, in his previous posts, stated that the film will “celebrate the victory of good over evil.” The magum opus will open in theatres on August next year but we will come to that later.
Without much ado, take a look at Prabhas’ post here:
The picture also states the word ‘Aarambh’ which means the beginning of their shoot. Bhushan Kumar, CMD of T-Series, is the producer of Adipurush. The film will feature actor Saif Ali Khan as the antagonist.
Prabhas and Om Raut announced the release date of the film in November last year. Adipurush is the director’s first film with Prabhas and second with Saif Ali Khan after Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
Team Adipurush began the motion capture shoot earlier in January.
Talking about casting Prabhas, director Om Raut had earlier told PTI, “I think Prabhas is just perfect. His entire persona, the calmness that he has. His eyes are so deep, his stance, the way he carries himself, his entire personality. I could see Adipurush in him and if it wasn’t him, I wouldn’t have made the film.”
Adipurush will be shot in Hindi and Telugu and will release in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada as well. It will hit the theatres on August 11, 2022.
