Amitabh Bachchan was recently seen in a cameo in Chiranjeevi's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. However, he will be seen in an important role in this project, currently dubbed Prabhas 21.
"Not a guest role or a special appearance...but a full length role so important, tht his character’s name was the working title of an early draft...thank you @SrBachchan sir for the privilege...we will make it worthy of your time #Prabhas #DeepikaPadukone (sic)," Nag Ashwin had tweeted.
On roping in Amitabh Bachchan, producer Ashwini Dutt said that he's thrilled to be associated with him. “The late legendary Shri NTR was an admirer of Shri Amitabh Bachchan and had even acted in the Telugu remakes of a few of his superhit Bollywood films. Shri NTR and I had watched the landmark film ‘Sholay' several times when it ran for over a year at NTR's Ramakrishna Theatre. After all these years, it is truly a glorious and immensely satisfying moment for me to welcome Indian cinema’s greatest icon, Shri Bachchan to be a part of this prestigious movie under our banner, Vyjayanthi Movies. It is a production house that began its cinematic journey with Shri NTR and also was named by him,” said Ashwini.
“I feel lucky and blessed that Bachchan Sir has selected our film among the many choices he has... It is a full-length role, which we believe will do justice to the legend that he is,” said director Nag Ashwin said.
Deepika Padukone will be seen in a leading role. The makers are yet to reveal the rest of the cast.
