Talking about the same to Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the development said, “Yes, Saif will feature in Adipurush. In fact, after seeing Saif’s performance in Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior, Om was rather keen on casting him again.”
Talking about Saif Ali Khan’s character in Prabhas led Adipurush, the source added, “Obviously Saif would come on board only if his part was a good one, and apparently Raut has roped him in to play the villain. Now given that the film is an adaptation of the fight between good and evil, it is likely that Saif will be almost a parallel lead opposite Prabhas in Adipurush.”
