Om Raut is all set to create a perfect big-screen entertainer Adipurush with Prabhas. The director seemed quite excited when he talked about the film. Talking to a daily he recalled introducing his film to Prabhas. According to him, Prabhas is perfect to play the role of ‘Prabhu Ram’ to perfection.
The film is an adaptation from the text of Ramayana and Prabhas is believed to portray Lord Rama.
“I have seen him [as the lead] in my head, on my computer, in my script if there is anybody who can play Prabhu Ram to perfection, it is Prabhas. As the biggest star in our country, he adds to the commercial value of the film. But more than that, he has a great combination of calmness and aggression. As the writer and director, that appealed to me,” Raut said.
The director also revealed that the actor has already started preparing for his character and transformed his physique to be an archer. He said, “He has to attain an archer’s physique, which is dramatically different from that of a warrior. We have begun consulting several experts. He will also begin learning archery soon.”
