‘Adipurush’ is currently one of the most anticipated films in India. The film, which is due to release next year, stars Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles.
And because of the scale of the movie in terms of star cast and large budget, director Om Raut wants to complete the film within his specific deadline. This has led to, according to reports, Raut moving the entire unit to the south of India to complete the film, reports Box Office Worldwide.
The makers were shooting the film in Maharashtra till the Government announced the shooting ban in the state. Observing that the COVID cases are rising day by day and the restriction may not be lifted any time soon. The makers moved to Hyderabad to complete the film.
A source was quoted as saying, “With 60 days of shoot behind them, the team has about 90 more days of work remaining. Om, with his producers, has zeroed in on a Hyderabad studio where he can shoot in adherence to safety protocols. Most portions will be shot indoors as the movie, in keeping with the director’s filmmaking style, is VFX-heavy.” The team is expected to start the shooting by mid May in Hyderabad and also stars Kriti Sanon and Sunny Singh in key roles.
Meanwhile, T Series’ head, Bhushan Kumar in a recent interview said, “Om Raut is highly talented. He has shown us his talent in Tanhaji. Now he has gone way ahead of that in terms of VFX and everything else. The story is iconic and you cannot compare it with any other.”
‘Adipurush’ is due to release on 11th August 2022.
