Popular actor Prabhas will be collaborating with National Award winning Director Nag Ashwin for the first time for an upcoming pan Indian film. The yet to be titled movie is tentatively being referred to as #Prabhas21 and is one of the biggest films of Indian cinema. The film features Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone as the leading lady and will also mark her debut in Tollywood. #Prabhas21 has a crazy fan following because of the star studded cast and every single scoop about the film goes viral in seconds. In January, Nag Ashwin promised fans to announce two big updates- one on January 29 and the other one on February 26, 2021.
While the first update was announced as promised on January 29, the second update was set to announce in a few days and fans were very much excited hoping for something big. Looks like that is not going to happen as the February 26 update has been cancelled. The update, which was initially set to release on February 26 has been cancelled due to unknown reasons. Nag Ashwin took to Twitter to apologise to the fans about it and wrote, “Hi…very sorry but there won’t be an update on the 26th…pls excuse me…it’s not the correct time… (sic.)” Fans were quick enough to understand Nag Ashwin’s position and accepted it with a lot of positivity.

On January 29, 2021, the makers announced the details about the movie cinematographer and music composer. Dani Sanchez Lopez has been roped in as the cinematographer, while Mickey J. Meyer will be composing music for the ambitious project. It is to be noted this cinematographer and music composer duo have collaborated with Nag Ashwin on his previous magnum opus Mahanati.
#Prabhas21 is touted to be a sci fi drama and will be shot on a big budget and have plenty of visual effects. Bollywood veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan will be playing a pivotal lengthy role in #Prabhas21. Legendary filmmaker Singeetam Srinivasa Rao of Aditya 369 fame, was roped in as the mentor of the film, making one wonder if #Prabhas21 would give a nod to his classic film. #Prabhas21 is yet to go on the floors and is eyeing for an April 2022 release.
