Amitabh Bachchan has been roped in for Prabhas and Deepika Padukone’s next.
Said to be a sci-fi film, it is directed by Nag Ashwin. The film will mark the debut of Bollywood star Deepika Padukone in Tollywood.
Prabhas was last seen in the 2019 action thriller Saaho co-starring Shraddha Kapoor, while Deepika’s latest release was Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak.
“After its latest offering Mahanati, the story of the legendary actress Savitri that won several national and international awards, its upcoming project is a much-cherished dream for Aswini Dutt, producer and founder of Vyjayanthi Movies,” the production house said in a statement.
“I feel lucky and blessed that Bachchan Sir has selected our film among the many choices he has… It is a full-length role, which we believe will do justice to the legend that he is,” Nag Ashwin said.
The film is slated for a worldwide release in 2022.
