Adipurush: Saif Ali Khan to play Lankesh to Prabhas’ Ram
Saif Ali Khan dons the role of antagonist Lankesh opposite Prabhas’s ‘Ram’ in Om Raut’s Adipurush
Saif Ali Khan left everyone stunned with his terrific villainous performance in Om Raut’s directorial ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’. The Nawab is all set to step into the shoes of India’s greatest villain ever in Adipurush – a magnum opus. The movie features Prabhas as Ram.
Saif Ali Khan has been signed on to play the prime antagonist in the period saga – who’s menacing, lethal, and brutal, all at the same time. He will be locking horns in with Baahubali star Prabhas.
Taking to Instagram, the ‘Rebel Star’ of Indian cinema broke the news with a poster where a 10-headed Ravana can be seen in the sky and Lord Rama pointing his arrow towards it. He wrote in the post “7000 years ago existed the world’s most intelligent demon! #Adipurush”

Sharing his excitement to share the screen with the Nawab, Prabhas shares, “I am super excited to work with Saif Ali Khan and I am eager to share screen space with a great actor.”
Saif Ali Khan is also excited about the project and shares, “I’m thrilled to be working with Omi dada again! He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to really pull it off. He has taken me beyond the cutting edge of our cinema in the way he shot Tanhaji and this time he is taking us all further! It’s a phenomenal project and I’m super thrilled to be a part of it! I look forward to clashing swords with the mighty Prabhas and to play a role that is electrifying and demonic!”
Adipurush will be shot bilingual in Hindi and Telugu. The 3D extravaganza will have a humongous release with the film dubbed in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and several other foreign languages.
The film, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Om Raut, Prasad Sutar & Rajesh Nair, is currently in the pre-production stage and is expected to go on floors in 2021 and hit the marquee with a massive release in 2022.
