Official: Mahanati director Nag Ashwin’s next is with Prabhas!
A surprise announcement, probably the biggest of the year, has just been made. ‘Mahanati’ director Nag Ashwin is teaming up with Prabhas for a pan-Indian film. Vyjayanthi Films is backing this project. The legendary production is celebrating their 50th anniversary and this Prabhas film is hence a very prestigious one.
Though Nag Ashiwn is just two-films old, he has already proved his potential as an extremely talented filmmaker. He made his debut in 2015 with the superhit Nani starrer ‘Yevade Subramanyam’. The director’s last film ‘Mahanati’, a multilingual, was a critically and commercially successful work. It went on to win three awards at the National level, including the one for Best Feature Film in Telugu.
So when an award-winning filmmaker like Nag Ashwin joins hands with Prabhas, expectations will be sky-high. Post-Baahubali, Prabhas has established himself as a pan-Indian superstar with a nationwide fan following. Though his last film ‘Saaho’ was panned heavily by the critics, it managed to do pretty good business solely due to his star power.
Prabhas will be eager to make a strong comeback with Nag Ashwin’s film. More details regarding the project are expected to be officially announced in the coming days.
