In what can be termed as massive news to Prabhas’ fans, director Nag Ashwin promised on social media that two updates regarding his upcoming film with the ‘Rebel Star’ will be out on January 29 and February 26. Replying to a fan’s post about Pongal update, the ‘Mahanati’ maker set the record straight by tweeting “Exact ga cheppalante…29th Jan and 26th feb.. :))” As soon as the news went viral, the hashtag of #PrabhasNagAshwin started to trend big-time on the micro-blogging platform.
Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has been roped in as the leading lady opposite Prabhas in this pan-Indian project. Starring Amitabh Bachchan in a crucial role, 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 formalities are in full swing, details regarding the shooting are awaited. The visual extravaganza will be helmed on a massive scale with a hefty budget and veteran filmmaker Singeetham Srinivasa Rao is acting as the mentor.
At present, Prabhas is occupied with the final schedule of ‘Radhe Shyam’. Starring Pooja Hegde as the leading lady, the romantic drama is a heart-wrenching love story set against the backdrop of Paris in the 1980s. Besides these projects, he has ‘Adipurush’ and ‘Salaar’ in the pipeline.
Directed by ‘KGF’ fame Prashanth Neel, the film was recently launched in Hyderabad and ‘Rocking Star’ Yash graced the occasion as the chief guest. Billed as one of the most immaculate action films to be made in Indian cinema, Salaar will feature the ‘Baahubali’ actor in a dark, violent role and he is reportedly working out to build muscle and acquire a beefed-up look to fit the bill.
