Out of the `150 crore whopping budget for Prabhas’s next yet-untitled trilingual film, `35 crore will be spent on a single action block in the film, making it by far the highest amount to be spent for an action sequence in Telugu filmdom. Spilling beans on the action episode, a source from the team told CE, “It’s going to be a chase sequence involving a lot of cars and action on the move.

It will be a 20-minute sequence and the makers are planning to rope in top action choreographers from around the globe.” To be directed by Sujeeth, the film will be simultaneously made in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. The principal shooting will commence from March, and the rest of the cast is in the process of being finalised.

Asked if the heroine has been finalised, the source said, “Talks have been initiated with a few actresses including a couple of popular Bollywood names. Since the film is being made in Hindi, the makers felt having a popular Hindi star will add value to the project. Nothing has been finalised yet. It might take a couple of more weeks.”


Talking about the project, the source added that it’s a romantic road thriller. “A lot of the story travels across locations. The makers plan to shoot key portion in the first few weeks such that the film’s teaser can be attached with Baahubali 2.”  

Composer trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy will take care of the music department while Madhie, whose recent work in Ghazi was lauded, will crank the camera. Sabu Cyril will handle the production design.
