Saif Ali Khan face off against Prabhas as Ravan in new movie
Saif Ali Khan knows a thing or two about playing the antagonist. Now, the veteran actor will be seen next in the new Adipurush film by director Om Raut.
He will be playing Lankesh in an adaptation of the Indian epic Ramayana, a classic tale of good versus evil, while Prabhas will play the protagonist Prabhu Ram.
Sharing the poster, the official handle of T Series wrote: “7000 years ago existed the world’s most intelligent demon! #Adipurush #Prabhas #SaifAliKhan @omraut @ItsBhushanKumar @vfxwaala @rajeshnair06 @retrophiles1 #TSeries.”
Meanwhile, Saif Ali Khan's wife Kareena Kapoor could'nt help but gush over the "most handsome devil in history".
Prabhas said in a statement: “I am excited about working with a talented actor like Saif Ali Khan. To be featuring alongside such a great actor on the big screen is a matter of pride for me.”
This marks Saif Ali Khan's second collaboration with Om Raut. They have previously collaborated on Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
The film will be shot 3D and will be releasing in several languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada. Sadly the movie is slated for release only in 2022 so we have a long wait before we can watch it on the big screen.
