The pairing of Deepika and Prabhas will be one of the main highlights of the film and the story between them, I believe will be something audiences will carry in their hearts for years to come,” he added.

As per a report by The New Indian Express, the shooting of the film is expected to commence from November. It is expected to release in 2023.
