Adipurush, co-produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Om Raut will be showcasing Bollywood superstar Saif Ali Khan in the character of the “intelligent demon” Lankesh. Saif will perform opposite Prabhas who will play the protagonist in the film.
This the second film featuring Saif and Prabhas together. Before Adipurush, the duo starred in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
“Every role and every character comes with its own challenges but portraying a character like this comes with tremendous responsibility and pride. I am very excited to portray this character of our epic, especially the way Om Raut has designed it. I am sure the youth of our country will shower all their love on our film.”
While the announcement was made on Thursday via social media. Said has revealed that he is quite “thrilled” to take on the role. I’m thrilled to be working with Omi dada (Om Raut) again!
He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to really pull it off. He has taken me beyond the cutting edge of our cinema in the way he shot Tanhaji and this time he is taking us all further! It’s a phenomenal project and I’m super thrilled to be a part of it,” he said in a statement.
