Directed by ‘Mahanati’ fame Nag Ashwin, the multilingual project is touted to be a first-of-its-kind sci-fi drama set in the backdrop of a third World War. While the pre-production works are expected to kick-off once the prevailing COVID-19 situation gets back into normalcy, the film will be helmed on a massive scale with a hefty budget. Recently, speculations went rife that popular actor Arvind Swami is in consideration for a pivotal role in the film. Legendary filmmaker Singeetham Srinivasa Rao is acting as the mentor for the epic project referred to as #Prabhas21.
Recently, Prabhas jetted off to Italy for the shooting of his upcoming film ‘Radhe Shyam’. Starring Pooja Hegde as the leading lady, the romantic-drama is set against the backdrop of Paris in the 1920s. Besides these two projects, the 40-year-old actor is joining hands with ‘Tanhaji’ director Om Raut for ‘Adipurush’ where he will be seen as Lord Rama with Sai Ali Khan playing the role of Lankesh.
