Interestingly, Safa played the role of Villain in Om Rawat’s previous film as well. The director’s much-acclaimed film “Tanaji: The Unsung Warrior” also featured Saif Ali Khan in the role of Udaybhan Singh Rathore as the villain opposite Ajay Devgn’s Tanaji Malusare. Fans highly praised Saif Ali Khan for this role.
Saif Ali Khan said during a statement “I was very excited to play the role because it is a fun role. But when people say it is history, I don’t think it is history. I am fully aware of this That is what history was. I don’t think there was any concept in India until the British gave it up. I don’t think there is really a constructive point in arguing loudly, provided you know yourself why are doing.”
Adi Purush will be shot in two languages Hindi and Telugu. The 3D film will be dubbed and released in Tamil Malayalam Kalyan and many foreign languages. Prabhas has already started working on himself to acquire an archer’s physique.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishna Kumar, Om Raut, Prasad Sutar, and Rajesh Nair, the film is currently in pre-production stage and is set to hit the floors in 2021 and release in theaters in 2022.
