The shooting of Prabhas’ upcoming film, directed by young filmmaker Sujeeth, is set to begin soon. It was earlier reported widely that the Telugu-Tamil-Hindi film would star Neil Nitin Mukesh as the prime antagonist. While it is unknown if he is still part of the film, it is learnt that Vivek Oberoi has been roped in for the film.
A few days back, the director and the producer met the actor and narrated the subject. “Vivek agreed to play one of the villains in the film. The makers want to focus on the Hindi release too, so they are roping in Hindi actors,” says a source. A search is on for the female lead. The source also reveals that they are planning to rope in Jackie Shroff for another important role. Since Jackie has previously acted in many Telugu films and is a also a popular face with the Hindi audiences, they want to rope him in as the other villain.
