Prabhas is said to be keen to defer the launch of his sci-fi thriller, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone, looking at how things are unfolding in the second wave of the pandemic. Nag Ashwin’s directorial venture is slated to roll in July. The Baahubali sensation wants it to be pushed to October as the shoot of his other project, Om Raut’s Adipurush, ground to a halt due to the spike in cases. He wants to complete work on it first. Ashwin’s big-budget movie’s pre-production has been going on for over a year ever since it was announced that Prabhas will feature in the pan-India film.
The yet-untitled film is slated to release in 2022.
The multi-lingual film is backed by the South Indian production house Vyjayanthi Movies, popular for projects such as Mahanati, Agni Parvatam and Indra.
