The director of Ajay Devgn starrer hit ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’, Om Raut is on a roll. After the grand success of the film, Raut had earlier announced a collaboration with T-Series’s Bhusan Kumar for an action film featuring Kartik Aaryan, though it has been reported that the film had to be put on hold due to various reasons. Om Raut went ahead and announced his next project, the poster of ‘Adipurush’ on his social media handle with none other than the south superstar Prabhas, which will also be produced by Bhusan Kumar.
But what caught our attention is that Arjun Kapoor sending good wishes to the “Adipurush team”. Is the Kapoor boy trying to drop hints by sharing his excitement? Our sources have informed, “Arjun Kapoor has been roped by Om Raut and the production house to be a part of the film. Arjun might essay the role of Lord Hanuman or even the character of Laxman.” After a string of flops, we can only hope for the ‘Mubarakan’ star to come back on screen stronger.
The story of ‘Adipurush’ is based on the mythological epic ‘Ramayana’. The makers are leaving no stones unturned to deliver a magnum opus to the audience. They have plans to rope in some big names in the industry. ‘Adipurush’ will mark the third collaboration of Bhushan Kumar and the ‘Bahubali’ star after ‘Saaho’ and ‘Radhe Shyam’. The film is supposed to go on the floors in 2021. It will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Om Raut, Prasad Sutar and Rajesh Nair.
