The makers of Prabhas’ Adipurush have announced Saif Ali Khan as the Antagonist in their film. He will be playing the role of Lankesh in the movie, a role equal to Raavana in Ramayana. However, the response from the audience has been disappointing.
“No how good the actor saif is, he is not going to do justice to the character of mighty Lankesh. In front of 6.2 feet Ram, at least 6 ft tall menacing Raavan was needed,” they say. Saif Ali Khan can not stand in front of Prabhas, they feel.
However, they still believe Adipurush will create mayhem at the box office because of Prabhas majestic stardom. They feel the apt casting for the role of Lankesh would have been icing on the cake. Adipurush will go on floors in 2021 and will release in 2022, the makers claim.Follow @THEPANIPURI
