Amitabh is currently working with Prabhas on Project K with director Nag Ashwin. Deepika Padukone makes her Telugu debut with Nag Ashwin’s project, which will be bankrolled by Vyjayanthi Films.

The two actors seem to have become each other's fans while working together. On Sunday, Amitabh tweeted, “'Bahubali' Prabhas .. your generosity is beyond measure .. you bring me home-cooked food, beyond delicious .. you send me quantity beyond measure .. could have fed an Army.” Last week, Prabhas had shared a picture of Amitabh from the 70s on Instagram and written, "This is a dream come true for me. Completed the first shot of #ProjectK today with the legendary @amitabhbachchan Sir!"
