Pinkvilla quoted a source close to the film saying, “The vision and plot point of Project K is so big that the makers have decided to make it a 2-part film. While the first part will establish the world and conflict of this magnum opus, entire drama will unfold in the second half, much like what happened in the Baahubali franchise. Project K is envisioned as the biggest film of Indian Cinema with a conflict like never before and celebrates the 50 years of producers, Vyjayanthi Movies.”
The insider claimed that the team has finished filming Project K's first instalment and is already working on its second, “Both the parts are being shot in one go and the two films will release in a short interval of less than a year. The team is confident of their content and hence, shooting two parts in one go. It’s something what Mani Ratnam did with PS-1 and PS-2. The part one of the film is at present in the post-production stage with VFX artists working on the footage, as the production team is busy on the sets shooting for part 2,” said the source.
Project K is scheduled for release in April 2024. Directed by Nag Ashwin, it is a sci-fi film starring Prabhas, Bacchan and Padukone along with Disha Patani. The film is simultaneously being shot in Hindi and Telugu.
