The film, which will release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, will reportedly go on floors next year.

Ashwin had previously opened up about the project said in a statement, “I’m very excited to see Deepika play this character. It is something no mainstream lead has done before and will be quite a surprise for everyone. 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.”

Meanwhile, Rao had recently tested positive for COVID-19 and is on road to recovery. The director in a video message said he had put himself under home isolation as soon as he got his test results.
