After the release of Guru, there was no news about Victory Venkatesh’s next project. At the same time, after Rudramadevi, director Gunasekhar also did not announce what his next directorial would be. Speculations are rife that both Venkatesh and Gunasekhar are teaming, to make Bhakta Prahlada, a mythological film, where Venkatesh will be playing Hiranyakasapa.
According to sources, the project is going to be made on a lavish scale of budget and as a multilingual project. Till now, Rs 10 crores has already been fixed for computer graphics.
However, now, there is a slight change in the cast. Sources from the industry says, “The director is keen about Rana playing the role of Hiranyakasapa. Venkatesh has not been approached for the role till now.”
Looks like the image of a negative role as Bhallaladeva has become a boon for Rana. Hiranyakasapa is known as a very arrogant and cruel king and Rana has to carry almost the same characteristics that he did in Baahubali. It is not yet know n who will be playing the role of Bhakta Prahlada.
Director Gunasekhar is known for handling scripts as well and is once again going to explore a similar genre. While the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be decided, Rana will be joining the sets soon.
