Prabhas’s #22, titled Adipurush, instantly created a buzz on social media when it was announced. Directed by Om Raut, who scored a solid hit with his debut Hindi movie in the form of “Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior”, is all set to make a movie based on the epic, Ramayana. Now we know that Adipurush will have a theatrical release on 11th August 2022. What you probably didn’t know was that the film goes on the floors last month.

While Prabhas was confirmed to play the role of Lord Rama, the makers have revealed the main antagonist who would play the role of Lankesh. Captioned as – 7000 years ago existed the world’s most intelligent demon, it is going to be none other than Saif Ali Khan.

Impressed by his villainous act in Tanhaji, Om Raut decided to repeat him in a much bigger canvas movie, Adipurush, opposite Prabhas. The enticing looks of Saif who could also be menacing, lethal and brutal at the same time might have made Om Raut take this decision, says some inside sources.
Produced by T-Series, Adipurush is being made as a bilingual in Hindi and Telugu and will be dubbed and released simultaneously in Kannada, Tamil and Malayalam. Buzzed to be made in the highest budget of over 500 Cr, Adipurush will start rolling from January 2021 and is expected to hit the screens in 2022.
Along with Prabhas, Saif and Kriti Sanon, we also have Sunny Singh who joined the cast of Adipurush to play the role of Laxman. Sunny Singh recently opened up and talked about his preparation for the film and said, “As a child, I had watched Ramayan along with my parents, I didn’t focus much on the characters but the story was enough to keep me invested. Now that I’m going to essay the character of Laxman, I have re-watched the whole Ramayan with complete focus on Laxman which helped me learn about his mannerisms, body language, and a lot more about the clothes, accessories they put on.”
This epic 3D extravaganza is promised to be a visual spectacle and the fans of Prabhas can expect another roller coaster ride on the lines of Baahubali.
Now that the lead hero and antagonist are revealed, all eyes are on who would be playing the role of Goddess Sita. Though there are many names floating around, we may have to wait for some more time before it is officially confirmed.
Post Baahubali, Prabhas is taking all wise decisions and planning his career in such a way that would establish himself as a Pan India Super Star. While Saaho was originally made in Telugu, it had all the stars across the nation and made it a much bigger hit in Hindi than any other language. His next movie, Radhe Shyam, also has known faces that audiences from all the states can connect with.
Prabhas #21, in the direction of Nag Ashwin, which would commemorate 50 glorious years of the Vyjayanathi Movies banner, is also touted to be a scientific thriller that has universal appeal and might also bring Prabhas closer to worldwide audiences. And now, we see him doing a direct Hindi Movie, Adipurush, that would cement his place as a Pan India actor and will spread his market to a much wider reach.
All in all, it seems to be perfect planning and we expect to see much more crackers coming along the way. Click on “Interested” to keep yourself up-to-date.
