The Baahubali franchise has been a blockbuster hit. However, the movie also made Prabhas a household name and a crowd pleaser. After these mind-boggling hits, Prabhas is set to star in a Hindi-Telegu bilingual film opposite Pooja Hegde. A romantic period drama, the film will be directed by Radha Krishna Kumar. This movie marks the director’s Bollywood debut and will be set in Europe.
Pooja Hegde made her Bollywood debut with Mohenjo Daro opposite Hrithik Roshan. Pooja Hegde is keen on working with Prabhas and she was quoted saying that this is a great opportunity to prove herself as an actress. Since 2016, Pooja Hegde has acted in quite a few films down south.
There were many speculations about the leading lady of the film before Pooja Hegde was cast. When asked about the movie and working with Prabhas, Pooja Hegde was quoted saying:
Reportedly, Prabhas and Pooja will also be taking part in a workshop. This is a part of preparations the actors will undergo for the period saga. Pooja also spilled the beans on how there will be some unique action and enthralling music sequences to look forward to in the film.
Pooja will start shooting for the movie by June end. However, Prabhas will join the cast and crew in Europe by July-end due to other work commitments. By then he is expected to wrap up the shooting of the UAE schedule of ‘Saaho’ alongside Shraddha Kapoor.
This is Prabhas’ fourth multi-lingual movie after Baahubali and Saaho. There are speculations that the period saga will release during Sankranthi 2019.
