Prabhas left with no choice as ‘Adipurush’ shoot shifts back to Mumbai
the Prabhas, Saif Ali Khan, and Kriti Sanon-starrer ‘ Adipurush’. We were the first to report how the film’s shoot had been shifted from Mumbai to Hyderabad, owing to the surge in Covid cases in April in Mumbai.
Buzz is, the proceedings have been shifted back to Mumbai, since the number of cases is on the decline. The film, which is 25 per cent complete, is expected to resume from around June 15-16. According to a source close to the development, the decision was taken because “Covid numbers in Hyderabad are not too good and Mumbai has performed better in the anti-Covid drive in the second wave”.
However, not everyone must be happy with this development. Like we had informed earlier, the film’s leading man Prabhas was extremely reluctant to shoot in Mumbai from Day 1. However, ‘Adipurush’ director Om Raut, who had earlier helmed the Ajay Devgn, Kajol and Saif-starrer ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ did not relent and erected two sets in Mumbai–one in Film City and one outside it.Om Raut and Bhushan Kumar, who is producing the film, remained unavailable for comment.
