The Nag Ashwin film starring the three heavyweights has gone on floors in Hyderabad
India’s biggest stars – Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan, and the gorgeous Deepika Padukone – are joining forces with visionary director Nag Ashwin and the ace South Indian production house Vyjayanthi Movies to create an epic cinematic experience for movie lovers. Bollywood’s legendary star landed in Hyderabad, as the film’s mahurat was held on the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima. For the shot, Prabhas sounded the clapboard for Amitabh Bachchan whose portions will be canned in the first schedule.
The poster released by the makers show Project – K as the working title of the movie. “On this #GuruPurnima, it is an honour for me to Clap for the Guru of Indian cinema! … it now begins!! #ProjectK Amitabh Bachchan Deepika Padukone #NagAshwin Vyjayanthi Movies,” wrote Prabhas on social blogging site.
Director Nag Ashwin will be canning some crucial sequences with Big B and few other actors in the first shooting schedule that commenced in RFC, Hyderabad. However, Prabhas will join the team later.
A big fan of Amitabh Bachchan, it’s a dream come true for Prabhas to share screen space with the living legend. Marking his first full length Telugu film, Big B is also equally excited to collaborate with the talented team.
A new world was created in RFC for the film and it is one of the most expensive Indian projects till date.
After their last offering Mahanati, the story of the legendary actress Savitri that won several national and international awards, this upcoming yet untitled Project K is a much cherished dream for Aswini Dutt, producer and founder of Vyjayanthi Movies. Swapna Dutt and Priyanka Dutt, who have been instrumental in raising the bar for cinematic values of several films of Vyjayanthi Movies and Swapna Cinema, are the co-producers.
With a dream cast that includes the biggest names in Indian cinema today including Amitabh Bachchan, Prabhas, Deepika Padukone and with a cinema wizard Nag Ashwin (of Mahanati fame) helming the film, movie lovers are hoping for a cinematic spectacle like never before and the industry too is abuzz with expectations.
