Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan starrer ‘Adipurush‘ is creating a lot of buzz already.
Recently they were reports suggesting that Ajay Devgn might join Om Raut’s directorial, Adipurush as Lord Shiva but now reports have said that Ajay is not a part of this magnanimous movie.
Considering the last collaboration of Ajay Devgn and Om Raut, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, stakes were too high if the two joined hands yet again. The film that starred Kajol and Said alongside Ajay earned a whopping 279.55 crores at the Box Office.
It would have been a big deal if the Golmaal actor has joined the cast at Lord Shiva along with Saif Ali Khan and Prabhas but according to Bollywood Hungama, it was unfortunately just a rumor and nothing else.
A source close to Ajay said, “After Saif’s name was announced, many thought that Om Raut will reunite with his Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior lead actor Ajay Devgn as well in Adipurush. However, there’s no truth to these reports. Ajay is not a part of Adipurush. He already has too many films on his plate. He has 10 days work left on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi (co-starring Alia Bhatt)”.
“He has to complete the remaining shoot of Bhuj – The Pride Of India so that it’s ready for release on Disney+ Hotstar. And then he has to film for a major schedule of Maidaan. Not to forget, he also needs to focus on the films produced under his banner,” the source continued.
Adipurush is said to be a mythological epic that is scaled on a huge budget.
