A couple of months back, Mahanati director Nag Ashwin has announced a new project with Prabhas. Ever since the announcement, this project has created a lot of expectations among the fans. The latest we hear is that Bollywood beauty Alia Bhatt is in consideration to play the female lead in this movie.
According to the sources, the makers are currently holding talks with Alia regarding the same. The actress is yet to take her call. An official announcement will get made once she signs the dotted lines. Earlier, the makers have apparently approached Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone but both of them didn't sign the film. We have to see if Alia will give her a nod or not. After Baahubali, Prabhas has got nation-wide fame. Thus, the makers of his films are planning to sign Hindi heroines. We hear that this film will go on floors next year. In an earlier interview, Nag Ashwin stated that it will be a science fiction film with a lot of commercial elements.
Prabhas is currently acting in an untitled film which is being directed by Radha Krishna Kumar. Pooja Hegde is playing the female lead in this film. Touted to be a love story set in the 80s, this film is currently in the midway of its shooting. It will get released by the end of this year or early next year.
On the flip side, Alia Bhatt is currently working on her maiden Telugu project RRR which is being directed by SS Rajamouli.
