After the critically acclaimed and box office success of Mahanati, National Award-winning Director Nag Ashwin, will be collaborating with the Rebel Star Prabhas for his next. The yet-to-be-titled movie is tentatively referred to as #Projectk and is one of the anticipated films of Indian cinema.  Fans are eagerly waiting for the updates of #Prabhas21, as it boasts a star-studded cast from different lingual industries. 

On Tuesday, the filmmaker revealed that he included the introduction scene of Prabhas. The director also added that the actor looks very cool in it and will be a feast for fans. When asked about updates, Nag Ashwin said that there's time for updates as there is a long time for the release. 

project is touted to be a sci-fi drama and will be shot on a big budget and have plenty of visual effects. Deepika Padukone is the leading lady and Bollywood veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan will be playing a pivotal lengthy role in the film. Legendary filmmaker Singeetam Srinivasa Rao, of Aditya 369 fame, was roped in as the mentor of the film. Dani Sanchez Lopez is the cinematographer and Mickey J. Meyer is the music composer for ProjectK.

Pinkvilla was the first to report that Prabhas is teaming up with Bhale Bhale Magadivoy director, Maruthi, on a supernatural action thriller titled Raja Deluxe. We also revealed how the film will be bankrolled by RRR producer DVV Danayya. And now, we have exclusively learned that the makers have roped in Malavika Mohanan to play the female lead in this film.

“In the past, Malavika has hinted at the idea of doing a big Telugu film. The film in question is nothing but the one with Prabhas in the lead. She is extremely excited to commence work on this project,” revealed a source close to the development. The initial plan was to take the film on floors by the month of June, but now there is some delay for multiple reasons.

“Prabhas will be busy shooting for Project K and Salaar over the next two to three months, and hence, it would have been impossible to shoot for another project in the same time frame. Maruthi also needed more time for pre-production since the horror elements require ample visual effects. The team has now decided to start work on the film from the month of August,” the source added.

While Prabhas’ lineup is loaded with Pan Indian dreams like Adipurush, Salaar, and Project K to name a few, one still awaits clarity if Raja Deluxe is a Tamil/Telugu Bilingual, or a Pan India film. In terms of release timeline, Adipurush is the big Pongal release in 2023, whereas Salaar is gearing up to open in cinema halls next Summer. Malavika Mohanan on the other hand will soon be making her acting debut in Bollywood with the Excel Production, Yudhra. She is also in talks for a feature film with Shahid Kapoor.

For unversed, Prabhas is next working with the KGF director Prashanth Neel and makers Hombale Films for an action film titled Salaar. In a recent interview with DNA, the Radhe Shyam star was asked if KGF Chapter 2 puts pressure on him to deliver a blockbuster with Salaar, he said, "Why? It's good news right! Prashanth Neel delivering a blockbuster my director! It's big news, it's a very beautiful news for the whole team."

Meanwhile, Yesterday, Allu Arjun also penned a lovely note on Instagram, praising Yash and the cast and crew of the movie. The Pushpa star thanked the entire team for keeping the Indian flag high. 

Pinkvilla earlier reported how Prashanth Neel is not planning to split Salaar into a two-part franchise as he wishes to stay true to the story of this Prabhas fronted gangster drama. Over the last few years, Prabhas fans have been expecting an update from Neel about a glimpse of Salaar. In an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, Prashanth Neel confirmed that he is even planning to get visuals of the film out soon.

“Of course, we are planning something around Salaar. We want to give Prabhas sir fans a glimpse. Once we start filming the next schedule, we want to come out with something. We want to set up the audience for what’s coming next. We start the next schedule in May, so maybe sometime then, we might come out with a glimpse,” says Neel. The filmmaker, who is gearing up for the release of KGF: Chapter 2, is in a happy space working with Prabhas for the first time.  

Speaking about the experience of working with the Rebel Star, Prashanth adds, “Prabhas sir had just come out of a movie like Saaho, which was against the backdrop of the underworld. So, in our first meeting, I said that this isn’t a gangster movie. The gangster element is just a small aspect as compared to what our real story is. He heard the story just the way I told it and agreed that the gangster element looks very small indeed.” He gives an idea about the world he is trying to create with Salaar.

“The movie is an action thriller, and Prabhas sir has not looked like this before. His fans are going to be very happy with the look we have for him. He has done different genres, and he loves doing that. He is a risk-taker. This is a mass movie and I think, we have got something that his hardcore fans across the globe would love. When a big star makes a change, everybody takes notice of it,” he concludes.

Prashanth Neel is all gearing up for his upcoming gangster drama, KGF: Chapter 2, fronted by Yash. Right after the release of KGF 2, Prashanth moves on to shooting for Salaar with Prabhas from the month of May. The team has already shot 30 percent of the film, and the remaining portions will be completed by the end of this year to get the film ready for a Summer 2023 opening.

Over the last few months, there have been speculations about a sequel to Salaar. Media outlets have revealed how Prashanth Neel is planning to split Salaar into a two-part franchise. We asked the director himself about the same and he refuted the development for now, however, didn’t completely rule out the possibility of spinning it into a franchise going forward. “So Salaar is not something that we are planning as Part 1 and 2 at this point in time,” he set the record straight.

He added, “The franchise wave has grasped the nation today wherein we see first part as an aspect to penetrate in the market and second part as a vehicle to tap into the maximum audience. That thought is in everyone’s mind. As far as Salaar is concerned, I would not want to do anything that dilutes what our story is and gives an imbalance to the plot just for making some extra money.” The filmmaker states that if he feels that the story warrants a part two, he wouldn’t shy away from announcing the same.

“I have not yet given it a thought, but maybe while filming, I do think about a probable two-part film, I will discuss it with Prabhas sir and if he is also okay with it, we would go ahead with it. As of now, we have not discussed Salaar 2 for a single day,” he clarifies. In Salaar, Prabhas plays the role of a gangster, whereas the character traits of Prithviraj and Shruti Haasan have been kept under wraps.

In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, we also asked Prashanth Neel about a probable glimpse of Salaar in the coming few days as also his idea of presenting Prabhas in a never seen avatar of a gangster. The filmmaker also gave us an insight into the world of Salaar and how different it is from the gangster films that Neel has made to date. Stay tuned, as the print interview goes live soon.

Prabhas is among the most bankable names of Indian cinema at this point in time, and this doesn’t change with the failure of Radhe Shyam. The actor has his hand filled with Pan India dreams like Adipurush, Salaar, and Project K, however, we hear that in the middle of these mammoth projects, Prabhas has decided to show a keen interest in doing a relatively smaller film. According to our sources, the actor has come on board Bhale Bhale Magadivoy director, Maruthi’s next.

“It’s a supernatural action thriller and the shooting will begin as early as May End/Early June. Prabhas has allotted approximately 100 days for the shoot and intends to wrap up the film by end of this year. He is very excited about the subject and is looking forward to exploring the supernatural space,” revealed a source close to the development. While there have been diverse reports on the producer partner of this film, our sources have confirmed that the yet-untitled film will be produced by RRR fame, DVV Danayya.

“There have been talks of UV Creations producing the film, but it’s DVV Entertainment that will be spearheading the project. The banner is excited to collaborate with Prabhas,” the source added. One still awaits clarity on if this would be a Pan India film, or just a Tamil/Telugu bilingual, but with this, Prabhas is finally taking a step back from the giant mega-budget films. “He wants to balance out his lineup, rather than taking the undue burden of recovery on every film. The actor is now clear to choose scripts based on merits, rather than being lured by the budget and scale,” the source added.

Meanwhile, this year, he will be juggling between the shoots of Salaar, Project K, and the yet-untitled Maruthi directorial. While Salaar and the Maruthi directorial are expected to be wrapped up by end of this year, the Project K shoot will continue until mid of 2023. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.

Can love trump destiny? Can you be that cream de la creme of humanity who orchestrates your own fate? If you are destined to die single, can your willpower forestall the inevitable? 'Radhe Shyam', the latest box-office release, toys with mystifying questions without taking the pains to permeate the screenplay with irresistible ideas and profoundness. 

Vikramaditya (Prabhas) is a palmist who is known for infallible predictions. He believes even what we think is not in our control (which oddly justifies his occasionally perplexing 'flirtationship' antics, perhaps). He knows love and marriage are not happening, as per his horoscope. When he gets attracted to a doctor named Prerana (Pooja Hegde), he wonders if his fate can be altered at all. Prerana falls in love with him all the more deeply after a crisis hits her (and steps aside in a hurry). In a tumultuous turn of events, the male lead learns that there is more to life than plainly parroting what has been scripted by the unseen power up above. 

Vikramaditya is a reluctant brand ambassador for fatalism. His character goes through inner churning that is seen but not felt. The existential threat feels like half a problem instead of a calamity. The serious scenes are intercut with a dash of distracting, sometimes parodic scenes involving the likes of Jayaram, Priyadarshi, and even the lead pair.

The casting of supporting artists is unsatisfying. The conversations are unpardonably ordinary. The conflict plot point feels impersonal because we struggle to connect with the lead pair despite Justin Prabhakaran's two sublime songs in the first half. 

The film is bereft of stirring moments despite the unconventional, slightly impassioned premise; and that's because of the occasionally inelegant staging of scenes. In a funnily bad episode, Vikramaditya invents the concept of practicing death on the go! Prerana's mimetic reactions only aggravate our frustration. The whole idea was supposed to be comical as well as poignant (?) in the pedestrian universe of the film.  

The film assiduously lacks tense moments that can keep us perched at the edge of our seats. The performances are unsettling because of the uneven casting. The Telugu version doesn't even feel like a straight film for the most part. When Jayaram is around, it is like a Mollywood dub. When Kunal Roy Kapur is around, it is like a Bollywood dub. Such versatility was never expected, was it? 

The dialogues sound like they have been written for a feel-good, low-stakes romance. They (not all but too many) belong to the world of an amateur independent filmmaker's cinematic universe, not a big-scale pan-India movie that is supposed to set the BO on fire.

The train does not look like a train from the outside. The hospital doesn't look like one from the inside. Raveendar's production design is substantial in some portions but not consistently outstanding. Manoj Paramahamsa's cinematography doesn't create haunting moments despite the galvanizing of high-end technology. The film nonchalantly mirrors the thinking of believers of fatalism. 

When the second trailer of the movie was released recently, this reviewer felt that Prabhas' characterization will be more intense than what the songs (which are far better in Telugu than Hindi) suggest. It wouldn't have been wholly unwelcome had Vikramaditya been a bit unpredictable and eccentric. Instead, he comes across as a typical lover boy trying to be over-cute. More than an easily irascible genius who doesn't calibrate his responses, he is a routine dude who doubles up as a wanderlust. 

The scenes in the second half where a key character makes a vain attempt at exposing Vikramaditya are redundant. When the first half has already established the hero's unreal efficiency in palmistry for the audience, why waste screen time doing it for a mere supporting character? The love track is barely inventive when it comes to lighter scenes. They feel generic and are hardly the kind of situations that should happen in the dramatic life of a clairvoyant man.

Pooja Hegde is gearing up for her next big release Radhe Shyam opposite Prabhas. While the film will hit the theatres this Friday, fans are excitedly waiting to watch Pooja and Prabhas together on the big screen. Their onscreen chemistry in the trailer as well as the songs has been the talk of the town. In a recent interview with a leading daily, Pooja opined on the same. 

In a chat with Hindustan Times, Pooja talked about her chemistry with her co-star Prabhas. She mentioned that although Prabhas is a shy person, he is quite jovial around his circle of friends. Pooja believes that is the reason behind the ‘magic’ on screen. “Sometimes you know someone really well but it doesn’t translate onscreen, and sometimes you meet someone for the first time but it just clicks because magic happens. I would like to believe that we’re looking really good together,” says Hegde. 

Pooja further shared that people comment that she has good onscreen chemistry with most of her co-actors, be it Allu Arjun, Akhil Akkineni, or Hrithik Roshan. Pooja said, “People say that I share great chemistry with most of my co-stars, be it Allu Arjun, Akhil Akkineni Hrithik Roshan. I love love stories. I’ve grown up watching them. And I love to give my all in a scene. Maybe that translates onscreen.”

Talking about Radhe Shyam, the film has been directed by Radha Krishna Kumar and will be released on the 11th of March. The project has been jointly produced by UV Creations, Gopi Krishna Movies, and T-Series and stars Bhagyashree, Krishnam Raju, Sachin Khedekar, and Priyadarshi in important roles. The film is said to be set in 1970s Europe.

After much delay, Radhe Shyam is scheduled to be out in theatres on 11 March and the promotions of this latest outing are going on ever since the trailer was released. Speaking of the trailer, Prabhas plays a palmist in his upcoming project, who predicts life, death, and love in the film.

Penned and directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, the much-talked-about film also has Bhagyashree, Krishnam Raju, Sachin Khedekar, and Priyadarshi playing pivotal roles. The movie is set in the backdrop of 1970s Europe and the melodious numbers from the film have been provided by S Thaman. UV Creations, Gopi Krishna Movies, and T-Series have financed this tale of love and destiny.

Prabhas emphasizes the importance of Indian films and how they have managed to do so from the Baahubali franchise to Allu Arjun's Pushpa. The actor said, "Maybe it started with Rajamouli or Baahubali, but we must make Indian films. The time has come and Baahubali, KGF did and now Pushpa, we are getting closer to making Indian films, more and more. In the future, we might release, 50 Indian films. that's a very good sign. We will be the world's biggest industry."

Prabhas' Baahubali needs no introduction, even after so many years of release, it is still a milestone for Indian cinema. One such scene fr the movie, which struck audiences' hearts is the introduction scene of Prabhas, where he lifts Shiv Ling on his shoulder and walks in the waterfall. The scene of Prabhas placing Shiv linga below a thundering waterfall made everyone in theaters go enchanted, it was a pure visual treat. Who can ever forget this majestic sequence that was etched in the minds of viewers all across the world? An iconic moment indeed!

The relationship between Prabhas and Shiva doesn't end there, continues in the second part- Baahubali: The Conclusion. Baahubali 2 showed Prabhas embalm himself with the holy ash around Shiv Linga, another iconic scene from the Bahubali franchise. Poetically, the start and the conclusion of the epic saga had the august presence of Shiv Linga alongside Prabhas.! 

Prabhas isn't any new face to mythological characters. In his next pipeline of movies, Adipurush will also feature in the avatar of Lord Ram and fans can't wait to watch him. Directed by Om Raut, the film also stars Sunny Singh, Saif Ali Khan, and Kriti Sanon in lead roles. On the occasion of Shivaratri, the makers announce the release date, Adipurush will hit theatres on January 12, 2023.

Coming to his other ventures, Prabhas will also play the lead in the periodic drama ‘Radhe Shyam’ with Pooja Hegde as the leading lady. Radha Krishna Kumar’s directorial will release on 11 March. The actor also has ‘Salaar’ alongside Shruti Haasan and ‘Project K’ alongside Deepika Padukone in the pipeline for 2022.
