Earlier this week, Prabhas had put out a teaser claiming that he was keeping his fingers crossed for his new project and was keen to announce it to the world.

Prabhas expressed his excitement saying: “Every role and every character come’s 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 specially the way Om has designed it. I am sure the youth of our country will shower all their love on our film.”

'Adipurush' will be Prabhas' third film with producer Bhushan Kumar after 'Saaho' and 'Radhe Shyam', and his first film with director Om Raut of 'Tanhaaji' fame.

If the poster is anything to go by, the movie will be a tale of ‘good vs evil’. They are expected to be shoot next year and the film will be made in Hindi and Telugu.

While he was a big name in South India, it was ‘Baahubali’ that catapulted Prabhas into a bona fide superstar in Bollywood. His extraordinary strength displayed in ‘Baahubali’ had many takers. While ‘Saaho’ was action-fuelled and filled with stunts, most of Prabhas’ film celebrate his charisma and star power.
