Saif Ali Khan to play the villain against Prabhas in Adipurush 

The 3D bilingual is based on the Indian epic ‘that revolves around the triumph of good over evil’


Published: 03rd September 2020

Saif Ali Khan will take on Prabhas as the main villain in Om Raut’s Adipurush. The actor, who was praised for his negative turn in Raut’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, has signed on as the prime antagonist in the upcoming action epic. A supposed adaptation of the Ramyana, Adipurush will be shot in Hindi and Telugu. The 3D extravaganza will also be dubbed in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and other languages. 

“I’m thrilled to be working with Omi dada again!” Saif shared. “He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to really pull it off. He has taken me beyond the cutting edge of our cinema in the way he shot Tanhaji and this time he is taking us all further! It’s a phenomenal project and I’m super thrilled to be a part of it! I look forward to clashing swords with the mighty Prabhas and to play a role that is electrifying and demonic." 

Prabhas, who is seemingly playing Lord Rama against Saif’s Ravana, added, “I am super excited to work with Saif Ali Khan and I am eager to share screen space with a great actor."

Adipurush is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Om Raut, Prasad Sutar and Rajesh Nair. The film is currently in the pre-production stage and is expected to go on floors in 2021 and be out in 2022.
