Pan Indian project Adipurush starring Prabhas under the direction of Bollywood director Om Raut is going to be the most awaited film in Indian Film industry.

As for the role of Lakshman, it is being speculated that Sunny Singh of Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety fame would be signed.
Kriti was last seen in Ashutosh Gowariker’s period drama, Panipat, in which she played the female lead Parvati Bai. She currently has multiple projects in her kitty, including Mimi, in which she plays a surrogate mother.

Helmed on the whopping budget of Rs 350-400 crore, Adipurush is bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Om Raut, Prasad Sutar and Rajesh Nair under T- Series.
