Fans were immediately taken by the Bollywood superstar’s tweet, also happy to have gotten an update about the film. Prabhas was also intimidated by the aura of Big B, as he also shared a throwback picture of the star, writing that This is a dream come true for me. He wrote that the team has completed the first shot of ProjectK on Friday with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan Sir!
Everything about Project K, including the title, has carefully been kept under wraps so far. Deepika Padukone already shot for a schedule in Hyderabad with Prabhas, with the makers even giving a glimpse onto the sets of the film. While Prabhas, Deepika, and Amitabh’s looks from the film are yet to be revealed, it is speculated that the film is Sci-Fi.
This is Amitabh Bachchan’s first film in Telugu where he plays a full-fledged role. He did previous roles as a cameo. Prabhas will soon be seen in Radha Krishna Kumar’s Radhe Shyam with Pooja Hegde, Prashanth Neel’s Salaar with Shruti Haasan, Om Raut’s Adipurush with Saif Ali Khan and Kriti Sanon, apart from Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Spirit. Project K is Deepika’s debut in Telugu, even though the film will release in multiple languages.
