Telugu superstar Prabhas, who will share the screen with Deepika Padukone in ‘Project K’, has asked the makers to postpone the shoot by a week after Padukone was rushed to the hospital after feeling uneasy on the sets.

Reports say Prabhas, who was shooting for the film with the ‘Piku’ actress in Hyderabad, requested the producers to push the schedule forward by a week to help Padukone recover from her illness.

News reports said that Padukone was taken to Kamineni Hospital in Hyderabad after suffering from an “increased heart rate”.

Times of India quoted a hospital source as saying: “She was not admitted, just treated. Her condition could have arisen out of sheer fatigue on the shoot.”

‘Project K’ marks Padukone and Prabhas’ first film together. It is also Padukone’s first Telugu film. The movie also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Disha Patani in key roles, and is directed by Nag Ashwin.

Last month, the director had revealed that the film is in the early stages of shooting. Ashwin tweeted in Telugu, “We recently wrapped a schedule. Prabhas’ introduction bit was shot in this schedule. The project is still in the early stages of the shoot, so there is still a lot more time to go for the promotions. But rest assured Prabhas’ fans, we are putting our heart and soul into this film.”
