18 May 2021: Sidharth Shukla to play Saif Ali Khan's son in 'Adipurush'?
Sidharth Shukla is the flavor of the season!
Though nothing is official, but if this news holds ground, Shukla will soon join Prabhas, Saif Ali Khan, Kriti Sanon and Sunny Singh for the Om Raut-directorial.
Rumor: No official confirmation by the makers yet
Reports further suggested that the team of Adipurush had shared the script with Shukla over a phone call, and he was pleased with the narration.
The development is, however, a speculation as the makers haven't issued any confirmation.
Shukla, who became a household name after featuring on the daily soap Balika Vadhu, made his big screen debut with Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania.
Movie: 'Adipurush' is slated to release in five languages
Adipurush went on the floors this year, but has been facing delays due to the pandemic.
The film stars Sanon as Sita and Saif as Raavan, along with Prabhas as Rama and Singh as his brother Laxman.
The film is slated to release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.
It has been produced by Raut and T-Series' Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar.
Details: The shooting of the film might shift to Hyderabad
Due to pandemic restrictions in Maharashtra, it's being speculated that the film's shoot will shift to Hyderabad.
Reports suggested that Prabhas was never in favor of shooting in Mumbai but Raut turned a deaf ear to him and erected two sets.
They have now been dismantled and similar ones are being constructed in Hyderabad.
This, naturally, has increased the overall budget of the team.
OTT: Shukla's 'Broken But Beautiful 3' to release on May 29
