On the occasion of the actor Prabhas’s 42nd birthday, the makers of Radhe Shyam have released a teaser introducing his character in the film. The posters released in the previous week ask the question “Who Is Vikramaditya?” and the video gives us an insight.
Prabhas is introduced as a palmist named Vikramaditya. The video begins with music and dialogue that invoke suspense. He says, “I know you. But, no. I won’t tell you.” We see Prabhas in a palace-like setting with grand pianos and the maps drawn on the floor. It suggests that his character can see the future, people’s failures, death and claims to know everything. The video ends with him looking over what might be a European city and he says “I am no God. But I am not one of you either.”
Interestingly, the teaser is released in English with subtitles in seven languages – Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu, in addition to Chinese and Japanese, indicating the producers’ global ambitions.
On Pooja Hegde’s recent birthday this month, the makers launched a poster with her character in this film, Prerana. The film also stars Sachin Khedkar, Priyadarshi, Bhagyashree, Murli Sharma, Kunal Roy Kapoor and more. Prabhas’s uncle, the original rebel-star, Dr. U V Krishnam Raju also plays a role.
This film has two sets of music directors – Mithoon and Manan Bharadwaj composing for the Hindi version; and Justin Prabhakaran for the Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam versions. Resul Pookutty has been roped in for sound design
The film is set to release in five languages – Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi. Written and directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, who made the much-loved Jil, the film is being shot by Manoj Paramahamsa and edited by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao. The film is produced by UV Creations and T-Series and presented by Dr. U V Krishnam Raju.
Pooja Hegde was seen last in the recently released Most Eligible Bachelor alongside Akhil Akkineni.
Apart from Radhe Shyam, Prabhas is also working on Adipurush directed by Om Raut, Project K directed by Nag Ashwin featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone, Salaar directed by Prashanth Neel, and his 25th film Spirit directed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy.
