Prabhas will next be seen in ‘Project K’, and it is touted as one of the most ambitious films of his career. The film, which features the actor in a grand new avatar, also marks his first collaboration with Deepika Padukone.
Now according to reports, the makers have grand plans for the science fiction drama, which is directed by Nag Ashwin. The film will reportedly be released in two parts, and it will help the makers to do justice to its massive plot and vision.
"The vision and plot point of Project K is so big that the makers have decided to make it a 2-part film. While the first part will establish the world and conflict of this magnum opus, the entire drama will unfold in the second half, much like what happened in the Bahubali Franchise. Project K is envisioned as the biggest film of Indian Cinema with a conflict like never before and celebrates the 50 years of producers, Vyjayanthi Movies, (sic)" Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying.
Interestingly, ‘Baahubali’ too was released in two parts, and the SS Rajamouli-directed period drama made Prabhas a pan-India brand.
‘Project K’ is a fantasy drama which also features Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan in a key role. The film is expected to hit the screens in 2024.
