A few days back, we were treated with an announcement of superstar Prabhas and Tanhaji director Om Raut’s collaboration. Teaming up for the spectacular project, Adipurush, the team even glimpsed us with the motion poster loaded with the killer background score.
With Darling actor being the leading face, the project undoubtedly has a pan India appeal to it. And considering the same, the investors aren’t shying away from banking huge bucks on the film. Also, Om has shown his potential by handling Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, so the buzz is definitely huge.
Now, according to the latest reports flowing in, Adipurush has got a budget of whopping 500 crores sanctioned. And interestingly, it is learnt that half of the budget i.e. 250 crores to be used on VFX work. If it turns out to be true, some never-seen-before sequences are expected from the Prabhas starrer.
Meanwhile, a couple of days ago, the report had it stating that Saif Ali Khan to play a key role in Adipurush. Talking about the same to Bollywood Hungama, the source 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.”
