Deepika Padukone had signed a film opposite Prabhas last year. Her name was announced with much fanfare by producers. She has agreed to start working for Prabhas’s sci-fi thriller to be directed by Nag Ashwin.
However, the film is now getting delayed. Prabhas will start working on Prashanth Neel’s ‘Salaar’ and Om Raut’s ‘Adipurush’ first. Hence, Nag Ashwin’s movie has been pushed to the last quarter of 2021.
As this film’s shoot has been postponed, Deepika has now given her call sheets to Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Fighter’. She is going to pair up with Hrithik for the first time. The film’s shoot will start rolling after June. Deepika was supposed to start working for Prabhas’s movie in May 2021. But now, she will join Hrithik’s movie.
