We had informed our readers a few days ago that Baahubali star Prabhas is playing the lead role in Om Raut‘s epic drama Adipurush and the makers have now roped in Saif Ali Khan to play the antagonist.
Saif is playing Lankesh in the movie and Prabhas shared his poster writing, “7000 years ago existed the world’s most intelligent demon! #Adipurush” Saif’s wife Kareena Kapoor Khan also shared the same poster and captioned it, “Presenting the most handsome devil in history… my man Saif Ali Khan.”
This is Saif’s second film with Raut after Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and he is thrilled to be working with him again. Saif Ali Khan said, “I’m thrilled to be working with Omi dada again. He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to pull it off. I’m thrilled to be a part of this project. I look forward to clashing swords with the mighty Prabhas and to play a role that is electrifying and demonic.”
Director Om Raut added, “We needed a brilliant actor to play the strongest villain from our epic. And, who better than Saif to essay this powerful role. Personally, I enjoy every day at work with him, and I am looking forward to this exciting journey with him all over again.”
Producer Bhushan Kumar said, “Saif blew us all over with his portrayal of Udaybhan in ‘Tanhaji’…, and he takes it a notch higher with his role in ‘Adipurush’. He is the perfect choice in this battle between good and evil with Prabhas.”
Adipurush will be Prabhas’ third film with Bhushan Kumar after Saaho and Radhe Shyam. The film is expected to go on floors in 2021 and will release in 2022.
